I groaned when I saw that the theme for Less is More 37 was cocktails. I'm not a cocktail kind of gal, but I was determined to participate since last week I couldn't manage a heart card to save my life! I didn't think I had any cocktail images, so I did a quick Google search and found this fabulous (and free!) Christmas Martini at Wendymade. I have never used a digital image before, but I gave it the old college try. :)
I printed the first one straight onto my card base, along with one of her free sentiments. I colored it with Prismacolor pencils and added some transparent glitter for a little holiday sparkle! I'm also linking this to One-Layer Wednesday since it has a triangle in it!
For my second card, I loosely followed the sketch at Skipping Stones Designs. I just switched the circle and the sentiment. I used the computer to generate my own sentiment for this card, as I thought 'Holiday Cheer' was fitting, and then framed the sentiment with scored lines. This Christmas card will go to my aunt who always serves fuzzy navels at Christmas dinner. I look forward to that fuzzy navel all year long! :)
I'm really pleased with how these turned out, but I have to say I prefer the feel of a stamp in my hands. However, when you don't have the right stamp, this is a fabulous alternative.
It's been one of those weeks and I've missed visiting a lot of your blogs. Thank you for your kind comments, and I'll be setting some time aside later this weekend to visit you, as well!
