The first one, above, uses the doodle border, Dear Santa letter and the stars from the Wish List Letter to Santa Bundle. I laid the items out on my page in the computer using the MDS software, and then sent to print. I added some red sparkly stickles over the stars, added the holly leaves (Martha Stewart punch) and made the envelope, then layered all together.
This second one was actually very easy and fun, and something quite different than I have done before. I used the digital kit called Sugar Sands Christmas Beach Bundle. There are a ton of cool digital papers there, but the thing is, I haven't used digital papers, so I wasn't sure if my printer would do an adequate job, or if this was really going to work for me, but I have to say, apart from the brown base layer in the card, the rest of the card was all made using one sheet of card stock (I used Aquabee marker paper). And everything coordinates! The flower, the leaves, the sentiment, the vintage image, and the background paper all came from that kit. So nice to not have to dig through my craft room to find that perfect sheet of paper or that perfect prima! For the leaves and flower, I printed them, cut out (by hand) and then shaped on a mat and layered on the card, adding a button and some ribbon to dress it up.
And also, a huge shout out thank you to Laurie at Doodle Pantry for helping me out with getting my watermark edited to integrate with the Hybrid Chick one. If you ever need a custom watermark, Laurie is the go to person!
I am entering the following challenges with these cards:
Robyn's fetish - make it vintage
Just keep on creating - Christmas
Simon Says stamp and show - stamp without ink
The Pink elephant - punches and dies
Speedy Fox/Marks Finest - pop up (hard to see in the photos, but several pop up dots used on both cards.
