The one on the left is crisp and clean with the
Snowhaven papers.
The one on the right is shabby and a bit vintage looking with the
classic Yuletide Carol papers.

Good Cheer


These two cards were created with my favorite stamp
from the Snowhaven Cardmaking Workshop on the Go.
The one on the left features papers from
Yuletide Carol and the right one uses Snowhaven papers.


I love the mixed fonts in this pretty stamp.
I stamped the whole stamp in 
Whisper Ink first, then again on with Cranberry.
Then I fussy cut around the "LOVE" and adhered it in the same place.
A few sequins add a bit of sparkle.
Wishing you good cheer as this week wraps up.
