Card Design: Countdown to Christmas with Nicecrane Designs, Day 2

http://nicecranedesigns.com/
As promised earlier this week, I'm back to showcase the remaining three cards that I created for my momma as part of her Christmas gift from LAST year using images from Nicecrane Designs.

FRONTS
Digital Image Details: 
  • A Joyful Christmas:  For these final three cards I used the image you see in the middle, and the two on the right hand side of the preview below.  Click on the watermark below to take you to its location in the store.

Digital Sentiment Details: 
  • Ones I created specifically for these cards.
Other Notes: 
  • I added faux stitching digitally to each of the panels that served as a base for the image and sentiment.  The colour of the stitching was designed to match the colour of ribbon used on each card.   
Embellishments: 
  • I thought it fitting to use ribbons from the collection I got from my Momma so the ribbons used on each of these cards are Spool O' Ribbon brand although I don't know where they come from.
Embossing Folder:  
  • The card base was embossed using the one of the folders from the Cricut, Paper Lace II set.
Other Notes: 
  • I made the inside the same on each, just switching up the colour of the faux stitches.  To see a sample of how it looks, if you missed my post from earlier in the week, you can find it HERE.
OVERALL
Paper Products:
 
  • Card, image and sentiment base: Michael's Recollection's Cardstock, white.
Challenges I am hoping to enter...
Before I go...
I've got another great Christmas themed set for you to check out.  If you love animals, then this one is for you.  Check out the precious images available in the Kitten and Puppies on Christmas Collection.  This set contains 10 adorable vintage images that would be great for any last minute holiday cards.  Be sure to go and check them out while you are at the store (c

Don't forget, to stay current on ALL the latest releases and to check out the fabulous inspiration from my fellow DT members, be sure to head over to the Nicecrane Designs blog.
Well, the first week of December is almost done. I don't know that I'm any farther ahead in all my tasks than I was at the beginning of the week. Although I have finished a card and an ornament but there are miles to go before I am done, so please wish me luck!
In the coming weeks, I will have another set of five cards to share with you using Nicecrane Designs images and hope to have a couple ornaments as well. If I'm really lucky, I might even get my Momma's actual Christmas card completed and uploaded. However, given that I still haven't posted the cards I did LAST year for my momma and poppa and my husband, I'm not sure the odds are good but I will be trying! 
Stay tuned as I'll be back with a promo post very shortly! 
Until next time,
