christmas cards take 1!

hi all!

We get to venture to the dentist this morning - UGH!  so not my idea of fun!  before we head out i wanted to get my first few Christmas Cards posted.  Now that I have the Black Cat i can cut so many awesome things available on the internet - one favorite place - Lettering Delights.  There is a TON of stuff to collect over there and i am happy i can use the cut files now too! i came across a set of SVGs called Father Christmas and HAD to have them.  one day i will have a collection of old time Father Christmases - but for now i have a small collection of Father Christmas cards for ya:

i put them into Make the Cut and arranged all the pieces and sized them.  then i cut some of the shapes in other sizes to use as additional embellishments - awesome way to pull it all together easily!

i found the papers in a pad at either Michaels or Joanns - i forget which - but they were perfect for the old world rustic theme of the father christmas die cuts.

here are some close up of the die cuts - i used Viva Decor Paper Pen in red for the holly berries and white sparkle fluff for the "fur" and beards.

i am really enjoying creating with my Black Cat and will be ordering some accessories to do more stuff soon - like fabric!  and embossing!
