Some Moxie Fab cards to share...

Here are a couple of cards for the MoxieFab Christmas in the Old Country Challenge.

This first one is for a friend who's celebrating her birthday close to Christmas. I just love this paper line's festive colors. They remind me of a Filipino fiesta which, in the town where I grew up, was about 2 weeks before Christmas.

Stamps: Warm and Wonderful (GinaK Designs)
Paper: Jolly by Golly Cosmo Cricket
Ink: Memento, Copics
Other: Ribbon by Michael's, buttons by GinaK

This next card is actually a gift card holder (perfect for the Crazy4You challenge too). I downloaded the Matroyshka image from Craftbits. I tried to imitate the nesting dolls, but in 2D. First, I printed the image in three different sizes. The largest one is the back, the smallest is the actual gift card holder and the middle is the front.

I stamped my text stamp (from my Vintage Borders set) as the background. This stamp is just perfect for this Moxie Fab challenge because I included "Merry Christmas" in several languages in it. If you look closely, I made sure the text in the 3 languages most dear to my heart, English, Tagalog (Filipino language) and Croatian are the most obvious. Aren't I pretty sneaky? :-)

This is the card when you turn the upper half of the front doll.

And here are the "nesting" dolls all laid out. Silly me, I don't have a gift card to model here, so I used my CVS card. Gift cards are not a common thing here yet in Croatia. The back is just a white space for a personal note.
