More simple Christmas cards

Do  you ever see something on the world wide web that inspire you so much that you want to sit down and create immidiately?

Usually, while browsing challenge sites etc, my brain is put in work modus, and ideas grow for a day or two, but with this sketch from CAS(E) This Sketch, ideas came popping up at once.

I  have saved this sketch to use it on  later occations, but what first came to my mind was making a super simple Christmas card.

Patterned paper: Kaiser Kraft. Card stock: Bazill.
Felt Snowflake & Merry Christmas sticker: unknown
 This may be not very traditional Christmas Card colors, but I liked it.


Then, yesterday, Dynamic Duos came up with this cool color combo:

Working with monochromatics (same colours in different hues -light/dark) usually set me off, but I thought I would give it a try. I used a vanilla base and bow (neutrals are allowed according to the rules at Dynamic Duos), and here is what I came up with:

Patterned paper: MME. Cardstock: ClubScrap. Ribbon & sticker: unknown.
Deer dies: Lifestyle Crafts

Another simple Christmas card!   


 Please come back on Tuesday when a new Cardabilities Sketch is released, to see my example and to learn more how you can play along :-)
