Two Christmas Layouts (and a farewell) by Karine

Dear 2Crafty fans,

Karine here to share two Christmas layouts I created.
 These two layouts will be my last share for the 2Crafty team, as I decided to step down.
 My personal and professional lives are so crazy right now and I feel like I'm always
 struggling to find time to create.
 I would like to thank Vanessa for having me as part of the team for a year: 2Crafty products
 are the best and everyone on the team was always so nice and supportive. 
Thanks to the 2Crafty family: you're the best.

Here is my first layout. It is called...

" Noel"

The first piece I selected for this layout is the Holly Flourish. I think
it's by far my most favorite Christmas chipboard: it's so elegant!

I decided to emboss it with a silver embossing powder, to make it pop against my red background.

I then selected the beautiful Pointed Ornament Set.

I embossed the pieces with three colors of embossing powders: red, silver and black,
 making sure the bottom piece was in a contrasting color from the top piece.
 I love all the details of those chipboards.

My title piece is from the Christmas Mini Words Set 2.
 I embossed it again with silver embossing powder.

My second layout is called...

 "A Christmas to Remember"

Don't you love the little angel face of my boy on that picture? He was so little!

I wanted to create something with lots of snowflakes. I chose to use two sets of the
 Fine Snowflakes. I embossed them again with silver embossing powder.

I then added the Holly Twig branches in my embellishments clusters.

I painted those pieces with an acrylic paint with a metallic finish.

I love how they fit within the layout while having a different more subtle finish.

My title piece is the A Christmas to Remember piece, embossed with silver embossing powder.

I placed it on the right side of my picture.

A few flowers and embellishments to tie everything together.
