Edwin Makes Me Smile and Holly card

Been a little side-tracked from card making lately, but managed to get back into some card making.  Loved this image of Edwin and added some snowflakes in the background.  I think this Edwin can be used for not only holiday, but any winter occasion card.

117 SKI EDWIN WITH SNOWFLAKES
432 JINGLE JANGLE SNOWFLAKES
I used the regular Smile stamp, but the mini is available.
MINI VERSION 704 YOU MAKE ME SMILE

Colored with Promarkers and used a snowflake punch and border punch for accents along with some half pearls and fancy yarn for the tie.

I loved the holly stamp that also came in the A Christmas Story collection and wanted to make a fairly simple and quick card that would be easy for mailing.
413 HOLLY SWIRL

Also used an old season's greetings stamp along with a Cuttlebug holly embossing folder and a MS border punch.  I've colored with the Promarkers.

You will find a terrific selection of Magnolia products for all Maggie lovers at fantastic prices at Magnolia-licious.  There are also lots of wonderful dies and other fun products too!  Dies seem to be one of my latest addictions lately and there are so many new styles available.  You can check them out HERE!  (Click on the name brand in the left column.)

Stay tuned.....another project coming tomorrow!!!
Enjoy every day!!!

Oh! very cute Edwin. I think he needs a few lessons on those ski's.
lovely design. I love the way you colored his jersey and pants.
I also love the second card. I love that Holly stamps too and have just been using it. it makes a fabulous border. I love the embossed background and noticed you have a lacy border down the sides of the holly. Lovely. Mine's coming.

Both are great but the holy one really captured my eye as I have that stamp and haven't used it yet. This really gives me some ideas.

The Edwin winter card is so darling Patti Jo and love the CAS white embossing on your 2nd card. What a lovely idea using the colored Holly Swirl as the contrast. Well done!!
Hugs,

Both cards are wonderful Patti Jo. They are so different. One, Edwin, is so whimsical while the red and white one is so formal. I love each. Edwin wins my heart every time. It's so nice to see him getting some air time! That stamp is just so cute! You did a great job with the card. I love the blue!
