Avonlea Christmas Cards

My first card was a inspired by Heather Stewart from a gorgeous set of cards she did for Christmas with the Avonlea papers.  I just love the teal of Avonlea paired with the Smokey Plum color.  This is a standard size card of the 3 wisemen:

Papers: Avonlea WOTG papers; Avonlea White, Avonlea Teal cardstocks 
Stamps: D1483 Glory to God
Ink: Pigment White Daisy, True Teal (retired) Exclusive Inks 
Embellishments: Pearl Opaques

The next card is made with the October Stamp of the Month.  I am SO loving that set!!  There will be more posts with that Christmas Stamp set.  I also love the look of creating your own pearlized paper with Create-a-Shade by creating a mist using alcohol and sprayed onto the cardstock.  This is the project that I did for the Heart to Heart Christmas Challenge.  This will be my first H2H Challenge (such a creative group)!

Papers: Avonlea WOTG papers; White Daisy, Smokey Plum, Avonlea Teal cardstocks Stamps: S1210 Very Merry Christmas 
Ink: Smokey Plus, True Teal (retired) Exclusive Inks 
Embellishments: z1263 Bitty Sparkles
Other:  Create-a-Shade (mist of alcohol & Create-a-Shade) sprayed on White Daisy CS; Sizzix SU Embossing Folder

These are two of the workshop cards we made this past weekend.  I'll have more to post this week.   "It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas....  "
