A Gift Set of Cards

I so liked the light blue cards that I made for my mom, I decided to make some bolder blue versions.  These create a bit different feel, but I like them as well.

I used my Papertrey Ink Winter Village stamp and die set again.  The inks are a combination of Close to My Heart and Archival Ink.  Strong colors for a stamp set that is less layering than geometrically matching.  These cards are A2 size - a little smaller than I'm used to but it works greate with these stamps.

I'll give these to my mom as well - keeping the set together.  I need to switch gears and get some crafty gifts made.  I'm hoping to be able to pull a post together soon.

I'm entering this card into the following challenges:

City Crafter Challenge Blog - I believe in Santa Claus  This challenge is to pick a theme from an old Kenny Rogers/Dolly Parton Christmas album.  I think my card matches their White Christmas song.

Make It Monday #305 - Love of Layers I used Fun Foam to raise up the ovals and the front of the card does have lots of layers with all those die cuts.
