Hustle & Bustle

With all the hustle and bustle this holiday season, I had forgotten that it was my day to showcase products using the beautiful December Card Kit from Artful Delight! My wonderful and talented teammate Rose agreed to switch with me this week, thanks Rose! So without further ado, may I present to you some winter wonderland cards!



There are some beautiful flocked chipboard snowflakes in the kit, so I decided to pair one with one of the many patterned paper offerings and followed the Artful Delight card sketch this month. I gathered some rustic, clean and simple inspiration from Lynn's blog, she features this style so well. Everything on this card came from products from the kit with the exception of the burlap string, which is May Arts.


This next card is also a take on the sketch, but it ended up having a more playful feel. I really like that you can achieve two different styles with one sketch and one kit! Now this card does feature everything from the Artful Delight December Card Kit-even the fun Paper Smooches Stamp Set is included!



Check out the two sketches available on the sidebar at Artful Delight Blog and link up your entry by December 23rd for a chance to win a kit!
