Fun With Christmas Cards - Part 2

I shared some of the Christmas cards I created in a previous post (first part), and today I'm going to share a few more of my festive creations. 

Inspiration: Lawn Fawn's adorable stamps, dies and plaid paper! My good friend Jean got me the alpaca set last year, and I just added the Sprinkled with Joy set to my collection. 

It's In the Details: I used Close To My Heart's Shinhan Touch Markers to color the stove, baking equipment, birds and alpaca. CTMH's wood grain embossing folder gave the tan cardstock the look of a wood floor while the snowflake embossing folder added texture to the alpaca card. And finally, I added part of a doilie to the alpaca card because who doesn't love doilies? :)

Awesome Tip: You can add shading to your colored images really easily - just outline the area you want shaded with a gray marker, and then go over it with a color. I did that with the stove - it's outlined in gray and then colored with red.
