Christmas Popups

Hello , welcome to my room . Hope that you are all well and finding time for a little crafting /browsing.
Last night I made two popup cards in Christmas theme . These will make my tally 42. Robyn set a challenge to create 50 Christmas cards by 1st December and she has made  21 and shares them on her blog .

Both card bases are from  SU Glossy White . This first one has sentiment  and holly from set , Christmas Classics on the front. Real Red ink and  markers were used to colour.

And the insert popup has the tree from same set. The tub is from A 'Judith' stamp inked with Chocolate Chip.

 For the background on   inserts of both cards I stamped the star from this set , cut it out ,placed it on white insert and sponged over it randomly with Baja Breeze ink , sponging  edges of insert with this ink as well.
My second card to share is..still using this set . But I only inked the baubles from the sentiment to stamp twice on front. I then sponged around them with Summer Sun ink. The sentiment here was punched out with SU Modern Label  x-large punch then edges sponged with Baja Breeze

This time, for the insert,  I used baubles from set  Contempo Christmas, inked in Real Red.
These were then punched out with SU Ornament Extra Large punch.

Loved the way these turned out . Hope that you like them too.
This second card I am entering into a sketch challenge by ...  Just Add Ink .  Amazing creations  here and well worth a visit.
Catch you again soon and cheers for now  Shirley-Anne.
