More Mimi Christmas cards

One of my favorite patterned paper packs from TAC is the More Mimi SWIC.  

Here are some Christmas cards that I made with it.   They are non-traditional colors of pink, brown and green.   I love them.

I used some musical pages from an old hymnal that I sprayed pink and brown, you can see a bit of it peaking out on the top left part of the card.  I used three different papers from the More Mimi collections, a tag, chipboard letters, chipboard tree and a snowflake with a brad center.

I distressed all the papers and inked the edges in a light tan color.  On this one the tag I was using was a bit small to fit all of ‘Christmas’ on it so I added a chipboard C.  I like it as I think it helps to bring out the tag.

I made a few of them, all just a bit different.  These were a great use of chipboard letters.  I mixed and matched them for the last few cards.  I sort of wish I did that on all the cards I made instead of just the last few.

This one I used some wooden letters that I inked in silver along with some chipboard pieces, a snowflake and brad.

I’m not sure if I’ll make all pink cards or make an assortment of cards to send out.   I have a couple other ideas running around in my head so stay tuned for more holiday cards.
