Merry and Bright

G'day. Today I'm sharing a pair of cards I made using Hero Arts new Holiday Houses digikit.
OK, so I admit I am loving making bling-y tree themed cards... I know I've made a lot, but here's just one more...
Bright Tree
This one uses a tree, sentiment and background all of which are from the Holiday Houses kit.  I then added loads of pearls and some stitching with silver thread to make it sparkly.
You know I love making rainbow themed things... and why not on a Christmas card??
On my next card, I took the lanterns from one of the houses in the kit, printed them onto white card, coloured them with bright coloured Copics and added Glossy Accents.  I then created my own string of lanterns using some Baker's Twine from The Ribbon Girl.  The sentiment and dotty background both also come in the Holiday Houses kit (it really is a FAB Christmas and Holiday kit!!)
Lovely Lanterns
I used a circle punch to nick the corners ofthe kraft card, then added some faux stitching.
More tomorrow...
