Allsorts 494: Clean and Simple Christmas

This week at Allsorts challenge it is my turn to host and I went with the theme of 
Clean and Simple Christmas. These will be cards that can easily be duplicated and you could even make sets of so they will be ready to mail in December. I hope you will join us this week, we have some GORGEOUS dies from Tattered lace to give away this week.

My cards were super easy to make because they only required a little bit of coloring.

The images and sentiment were both stamped with Versafine Onyx ink on Neenah Linen card stock using my Tonic Stamp Platform. Both cards required only a little bit of coloring, and this time I used my Faber Castell Polychromos Pencils. The snowflakes were stamped using Tumbled Glass Distress ink and I also inked the edges to give the image panels a little frame without adding extra card stock. A clear Wink of Stella glitter brush was used to add a little bit of sparkle to the snow. The card base is also Neenah linen textured 80lb card stock. 

Here is a closer look at each card:
