Special occasion cards from kits!

These cards were created from kits which I prepared for my last card class.  The Valentine's card features this cute little clown and the other one is a Christmas card which features a vintage image of Christmas roses!!  All of these kits had embossed and sanded backgrounds using cardstock with a different core colour which when sanded really highlights the embossed design. I used coordinating vintage seam binding and tied a short piece to the one I added to the background to simulate a bow.  The images are colour printed digital images that were downloaded from Graphics Fairy.  Both have layered colour printed greetings.  I love creating cards for a wide variety of occasions using the same components by using a variety of images and greetings.  The elements can also be combined in a variety of layouts which varies the looks of your cards.  There are a few more cards here as well.
This Christmas card bring my stash to 14 for the month of January.  A few more than I need but that will give some extras in case I don't meet my goal in any future month.
