VCMP Challenge #3: Unique Christmas

It's time for my take on the VCMP Challenge 3! This one is to make a Christmas card using non-traditional Christmas colors.

Here is card one:

Whew! This took more time than I expected, but I should have known better. All of the circles on both cards were cut out one by one since I used my Cuttlebug and Nestabilities. I don't have any circle punches. I also used by Cuttlebug to emboss the background paper. My first thought when I saw this challenge was to use purple. I just happens to be my favorite color. I used one of those dollar alphabet sets from Studio G. Papers and ribbon are from my stash. I like how the pink of the ribbon blends with the background so the hearts pop better.

And my second one:

I borrowed the red, white and blue idea from Barb over at Paper Therapy Ponderings which is our third stop on the VCMP. I love this star ribbon that I got at Scrapbook Nook. Did I mention I like how Christ fits on one line on both cards? It's so easy to get lost in all of the holiday stuff. This is a gentle reminder of what the season is truly about.

It's time for a dinner break. I missed lunch while I was playing along lol. Thanks for stopping by.
