Festival Trees, Christmas cards with atmosphere

So inspired by my friend Sally Jo, she makes the most wonderful detailed cards with lots of layers I had to use her You Tube video. This style of card I had done before but not for some time.
I have used Festivals of Trees stamp set that has returned in the annual catalogue from last Christmas. I seem to remember using a lot of red and green last year. This time around I have used Night of Navy ad Soft sky for two cards and Basic Grey with Blushing Bride for the second pair.

A glue pen and a little glitter where finishing off items. Fancy using glitter in August, unheard of!

I will be back with more of these over the next few weeks.

So these are the navy and soft sky cards, the close up photos giving more detail have come out better than I expected. The confetti punch is great for the little stars in the glimmer paper.

 So which are your favourites? The Blue or the pinky ones?

Please leave a comment and let me know.

Ooops nearly forgot, the link to Sally Jo's page

  2. I'm still not sure which I prefer. Have some ideas for other colour combinations.
