Chalkboard Christmas cards

Hi! Back with another pair of Christmas cards, this time with a bit of a chalkboard look.

They're pretty similar and are both for this weeks Colour Me... challenge which is Real Red and a neutral, and also Just Us Girls chalkboard theme but following different sketches. This first one is using this weeks My Favourite Things sketch. The sentiment is stamped in Sparkling Snow embossing powder but for the life of me I couldn't get the glitter to show in the picture!

Then this second one is using this weeks Fusion sketch. The background was sponged with white ink, as were all the edges. I hope you like then, thanks for looking!

Sentiment - MFT 'Seasonal Sentiments'
Cardstock - Stampin' Up 'Real Red'
Papers - Echo Park 'Tis the Season'
Die - MFT 'Let it Snowflakes'
Embossing - WOW! 'Sparkling Snow'
Other - white ink & red gems
Stencil - Simon Says Stamp 'Falling Snow'
