Season's greetings from all of us at the International Scrapbook Garden!

Victoria stopping by today to show off some amazing papers that can be purchased at the store.  These two cards are designed using Maja Designs - Home for the Holidays 6 inch x 6 inch paper.    The paper pack has so many great designs and these are just two of the cards I made using these papers.

Season's Greetings 2017.jpg

Gentleman's Season's Greetings

This card is virtually the same design as the card above, using the deer themed papers.

The difference here is the focal strip is cut to the 5 1/4 inch length.   Again I have distressed all edges with my scissors.  The gentleman is from the Tim Holtz paper dolls pack, while the wreath is from the Tim Holtz Ideology Christmas Ephemera.  I used some Diamond Stickles by the edges to give the card a little shimmer.  I also used some Ruby Slipper color Stickles on the wreath to give the berries some glitter.

Hope you enjoy these cards and have a very blessed holiday season!

Victoria and all of us here at the International Scrapbook Garden.
