Spots and Stripes and Muse Christmas Visions

 Hi Everyone,

for the Muse Christmas Visions inspiration you need to scroll down.

I am playing along with Less is more - the challenge is just to my liking! One layer (my favorite) combined with spots and stripes - can't think of anything better!

Made two cards - quite similar. I do like my first one better


My supplies: Dotted circle by Altenew, sentiment Lil Inkers and striped star is a Simon Says die cut. I did inlaid die cutting, to make it one layer.

For my second card I just rearranged everything. I am sure opinions will vary, which one looks better....






Kimberley Wiener is our Muse this month! And I cased her card like this:


Here is Kimberley's card:

You see how I got inspired - or better how I basically copied it.....Took that elegant wreath from Uniko and heat embossed it in green. Sponged distress ink onto the wreath and added those tiny berries. Added the sentiment, some Stickles to the berries and the red yarn. Lastly I sponged a scrap piece of card stock and die cut the Memory Box bird. Mounted him with foam tape.


Hope you'll find time to play along with us this month. 
The linky list will be active until May 28th.

Happy Holiday Card Making!

I have to say I like both the same. I dont know if one is better than the other, know nothing about balance, space etc just like both. Also very much like your Christmas card.

Leider werde ich dir auch keine Hilfe sein können (Frauen und Entscheidungen... Das ist doch immer ein großes Problem! *lach*).
Ich habe mir nun ein paar Mal beide Kartenversionen mit dem großen Stern angesehen und finde sie beide absolut großartig! Die Farbkombi mag ich ohnehin total gerne.
Liebe Grüße
Katrin

All three of your cards are fabulous, Evelyn! I love the pop of pink amongst the black and white elements and the fantastic graphic nature of your images. Thanks for sharing with us at Just Add Ink this week.

Your spots and stripes cards are fab-u-lous! I think I like the first one too but they are both amazing. I now know that I definitely need those Altenew circles in my life! Love the shocking pink and black, fantastic combo.
Thanks so much for sharing with us at Less is More, Anita x
