My cards today use both of the big new stamp sets by Kris Lauren, ChilIin' Gnomies and Sweater Weather. On this first card I masked together most of the cute characters in the Chillin' Gnomies set, creating a scene of Santa stopping by to visit some of his polar pals and gift them with Christmas presents.The simple snowy background really makes that red and gold combo pop off the card. The sentiment was borrowed from the Sweater Weather set and heat embossed to match the falling snow.


 

My second card is all about the Sweater Weather set and those awesome "ugly sweaters" that we all know and love. I stamped four of the six included in the set across the length of this slimline card front and couldn't resist hinting at the happy holiday party goers who are wearing them. Each one looks quite festive and ready to take home the top prize from the ugly sweater contest, LOL! Once again the sentiment is heat embossed to stand out against that bright red background. :)

Alrighty, thanks for stopping by. I will be back again tomorrow with some more 3C cards... this time featuring the new Anita Jeram cuties!

See ya then!
