So Very Merry - Altenew, Pinkfresh + The Stamp Market | Two Takes

Hello Friends!
I'm so excited to be digging into my holiday stash and sharing some twinkly cards with you today!

Today's cards are another edition of my Two Takes Series - where I use the same supplies in two different cards. Let's dig in!

For my first card today, I stared with an ink-blended base, adding two soft rose hues around the edges. I then used the Skinny Alpha dies to cut out the first portion of my sentiment, and pulled the letters out to set them aside for my next card. To fill in the negative cuts, I die-cut some extra sparkly paper, and slotted the fonts into place. 

Along the side of the card, I added some die-cut holly leaves and berries, and colored them up with Copic markers. I did an awful job coloring these! You can see each and every stroke...I guess the excitement of the season got to me ;)
To finish my sentiment, I stamped a heap of Lovely Blossoms in different hues, and used the gorgeous lowercase Kelly Alphas to cut out my word. 

For my next card, I used the leftover fonts, along with a large, decadent poinsettia from the Poinsettia and Pine stamp set. 

I am utterly in love with this gorgeous bloom! It's wispy, seasonal, and such a great size for a card front.

To finish off my sentiment, I added a sparkly glittered word, cut with the Hand-Lettered Holiday die. 

Everything about these sparkly cards is getting me right into the mood of the season! I can hardly wait to do more Christmas crafting. Have you started yet?

Wishing you all a lovely day!
