Winter Rudi

RudiHello!  I actually had some time to play today in my craft room and here is my second holiday card I made today. I opted to use my favorite holiday color combination – aqua and red. I love the softer look of the aqua instead of emerald green. Just a quick post as I really do need to get a few thing done around the house, it’s just so easy to play instead of do housework 🙂

Let it Snow

let it snow copyCan you believe it is September already???  Last year at this time I had almost all of my holiday cards made.  This year I have but a handful ready to go.  No stamps used on this card.  I used a few of the digi elements found in the Snow Princess collection to make the scene – quick and easy.  I added sticles to the snow on the branches to give the image more of a 3-D apprearance.

As you can tell I took the photo inspiration and used it quite literally from the color palette to the horizontal sandal stripes to the coconut drink!  I love it though as I would have never in a million years thought to make a holiday card like this.
