I broke my own rule right off the bat by being inspired by the blue snowflake background card. I liked that it was blue, as blue seems like a great color to do with snow and sleigh riding and when I pawed through my huge box of holiday paper there seemed to be a lot of blue. A lot of blue. A. Lot.
On that note I decided that my next lot of 5 cards would be made with the same stamp but using different blue papers in the background. Like last time all these images are glittered but you can't tell by the scans. I used ribbons, a snowflake punch, and some bling for these two cards.
These last two cards have a lot of similarity. They both have light blue backgrounds, a scalloped edged border, ribbon along the side, and are colored in a like manner. Yet for all the similarities, they have a different feel to them.
Those are my latest in my Rule of Five Quest. I hope you enjoyed them and have been inspired to work on your own cards for The Holiday That Shall Not Be Named.
The Fine Print: Stamps by A Muse Studio "Christmas Carol" set, background papers by DCWV, snowflake punches by Martha Stewart, small scallop border done with decorative scissors (probably Fiskars), large scallop border by Fiskars border punch, miscellaneous ribbon and bling.
