Two shaped cards

Rather than rectangular or square cards I decided to make a couple of 'shaped' cards.
I seem to have used these two digis a lot this Christmas - the Snowman is a Free Dearie Dolls image and Santa in Bugaboo's 'akvsantapresents'.

The first card I cut into a 'sweater' shape for
'My Ugly Sweater - use red, green and silver and a snowman'

I just cut around the Snowman, coloured him with Promarkers and stuck him to my card base.
I added green buttons and Silver stars and Stickles.

My second card has a rectangular back and a 'parcel' shaped front.
This is also for 

Favourite Holiday Treat
I picked
Sugar Cookies with Sprinkles - Make your card a shape other than Square or Rectangle, 3 pieces of Bling & Ribbon

Again I used Promarkers to colour the digi and added glitter.
I used some Bobunny DP from the Mistletoe collection, and green card from my scraps.
I added various pieces of ribbon, red gems, a silver bow and a glass bead for the hat 'bobble'.

Happy Crafting!
