Caardvarks - Decorated Inside & Out

Happy Wednesday! Where has the last week gone?? It just slipped away! I hope you are all well! Did I miss anything? Last night I was able to make two cards for the Caardvarks Challenge "Decorated Inside & Out". It is sponsored by Penny Black and I would love to get my hands on some of their stamps! So here are my cards:

On the first one I did some paper-piecing and added a bit of Glossy Accents to the heart:

The inside holds some tea to stay warm:

My second card is a simple/elegant one:

The berries are made with some Antique Linen Distress Stickles. Here is a close-up:

And this is the inside of the card - I really hope you can see the wreaths I stamped with Versamark onto the background, so difficult to take a picture of that:

Still experimenting with the design I can mass-produce for christmas. The wreath is an option, but it takes some time to add the stickles! Ok, off to finish some chores here! :(

Have a beautiful day, I am glad you stopped by!!

Beautiful cards, Vanessa. I love the wreath image. I think maybe I should decorate my cards inside too, it finishes them off nicely.

Vanessa, was sind das tolle Karten geworden. Ich glaube, die zweite Karte gefällt mir noch einen Tick besser, als die erste, aber nur minimal. Da freut man sich doch richtig auf Weihnachten.

LG, Tina
