For my cards I have used this "TeddyBo in Santa's Hat" image and created two cards as my pair, both of them have been coloured with my Copic and Tria pens, and then cut out with the Nestabilitie Die Labels No.16 to cut it out and for its mount Ive used the Ornament die and run it through the my cuttlebug with a ornament embossing folder.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of blue for the blue card and red for the other one, and then Ive used the Papermania "Christmas Joy" paper pad in the two colours and have used three layers the second one has a strip down the card with the Martha Steward Parcel border punch used on it and the third mount is a plain colour with a pattern of ornaments on it. The mounted image was then positioned in the centre and I have then wrapped two coloured ribbons at the bottom around the cards which have sentiments on them.
Also, we are having an Anniversary Blog Hop. You can get the full list of blogs over at Cards for Men. If you arrived here from "Patricia's" then you're on the right track. If not, hop over to Cards for Men to start at the beginning.
