My first card features the Little Bits - Nativity, Little Bits - North Star, and the Joy Script. They were all cut out of Metallic Neutrals and adhered to the background that was cut out of Blue Corn cardstock with the Stitched Oval Stacklets. 



To finish it off, the oval diecuts were popped up with foam tape onto the background layer that was cutout of Metallic Neutrals cardstock with the previously released Stitched Rectangle Stacklets.

My second card features the Noel Script, the Ornamental Stamp Set, and the Ornamental Dies. The background was watercolored with Zig Clean Color watercolor pens on TE Premium Watercolor Cardstock as were the ornaments and the Noel Script. The ornaments were cutout with the Ornamental Dies and popped up on the background. The ornament hangers were hand drawn.


An additional Noel Script was cut out of Jelly Donut and adhered to the back of the watercolored diecut to add a shadow. The previously released Frame in Frame 2 Cutting Plate was used to cut a frame out of Jelly Donut cardstock and it was adhered to the watercolored background as the finishing touch.

Joan, I always love your cards. I agree the Nativity one is so elegant and really expresses the reason for the season. However, the ornament card with the pink, purple, and green just speaks to me. Great job!
