Some Quick Christmas Cards

Thanks for stopping by today! I have some more $1 cards I made for the Craft Show to share with you.
Card Sizes: 4.25" x 5.5"
For the moon, I cut a circle out of a Post-It note, attached it (w/ Post-It sticky part) to my CS piece, and then Stipple Brushed CTMH Moonstruck Ink. I then stamped the trees with Black Ink (Penny Black-Snow Dust stamp) and then stamped my sentiment. I used a glue pen to add dots of glue, and sprinkled Prisma Glitter to give the snow some sparkle.
Inside the card I stamped a cardinal from the CTMH SS Harmony.
To make the trees look like a forest, I stamped the trees, and then without reinking, shifted the stamp to the right, and then stamped it on the CS again. This is called 2nd Generation Stamping, for those new to stamping:) I then added my sentiment, and some chunky glitter for snow.

For this card I embossed the white CS with Cuttlebug's Victoria EF, used Cuttlebug's ornament die on CTMH-Outdoor Denim CS, added a piece of Aluminum Duct Tape (from your local Hardware Store), punched a hole, and then attached the blue CS piece to the card. Very simple, very fast:), perfect for a $1 card!
I also made some cards with CTMH-Petal CS, this was the inside of that card...the only difference is the blue card had blue ornaments inside.
I hope you were inspired! Enjoy,
