Sunny Australian Christmas!

Here is a couple of Christmas cards I made for some friends featuring two very cute stamps from La La Land Crafts; 'sunny Christmas Marci' and 'sunny Christmas Luka'. Here in Australia it is usually hot on Christmas day so when I saw these two 'sunny' looking Christmas stamps I knew I had to get them! I have coloured my stamps in with copics and added some glitter for sparkle (I seem to be using glitter a lot lately; I love glitter!). My circular sentiments are free from Bizzy Becs Store Blog. The design of my two cards is called a 'telescoping card'  which is an expanding layered card and I followed a tutorial on Splitcoaststampers. Telescoping cards are so much fun; I made a lot of them this Christmas!

I am entering my cards into the following challenges:
- La La Land Crafts. December customer gallery
