Three cards for Christmas

This card came together as one of those inspiration pieces as I was looking for something else. I have used the wide washi tape from Altenew, I love the idea of being able to do a night sky without all layers especially if an idea has just popped into your head.

I had this heart cut out of card base picked it up and thought the washi would look brilliant inside the heart. That was easy, then I looked for the perfect sentiment - I think thats Mama Elephant  and comes with some cute bears (yes I know that I have not used yet). The sentiment is perfect with the heart and galaxy and a die cut sparkle star finishes it off. 

This card I was inspired to make after seeing the Muse card for this week.
Love Anita's card but I am working on Christmas so I went that way.
I took inspiration from the embossed background and the green used on the balloon and working in the bottom half of the card with image and sentiment.

I used a snow embossing folder for the background.  I decided to use the penguin (rather than a heart) sitting on a present as I had just coloured him and I thought he looked cute.  
I have added Nuvo glitter to the present dots and ribbon but it hasn't shown up in the photos sadly. Actually it has just covered the shading done in the ribbon and dots lol. Instead of a balloon I decided to add a free floating sentiment cut from a green/blue sparkle paper as I liked the colours Anita used. 

This last card I have used a Mo's Digital Pencil image coloured with Copics and some Kindy Glitz to add some dimension to the hat.

Die cut sentiment from Stamplorations cut from silver sparkle paper.
