It might not be very noticeable but the first card uses subtly patterned paper for everything except the snowy roofs and mountain tops.
For the second card, I water colored the globe and then die-cut all the pieces using different colors of Kraft-core paper, and roughed them up with a nail file.
Now I'm up to six Christmas cards. Hmm.
I am also submitting this to Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge, this week's challenge is Anything Goes as Long as it's Christmas.
