Super Quick Christmas Cards 2

Hello and welcome here. This is my 2nd set of quick Christmas cards that I made up to sell at the Craft Fair. If you missed the first post of Super Quick Christmas Cards you can catch up with them HERE. Like the first set, I plan to sell these for $1 at the Craft Fair so I wanted them to look elegant but not cheap.

For the Challenges I entered I listed the card that qualifies for the challenge at the end of my post.

Card Sizes: 4.25" x 5.5"

Card #1
I love Cuttlebug's Grace's Frame EF, it adds a nice finishing touch to the card. I matted Kraft CS with a dark brown CS, stamped the image with brown ink and the sentiment with black ink. I added some Golden Rod Stickles to the corners for a little sparkle.


Stamps Used: CTMH SS-Let Us Adore Him & Glory to God

Card #2
I wanted to use some Christmas paper for some of my cards and since I didn't use a big piece on the card I was able to get 12+ cards out of a piece of 12x12. I used CTMH's Wonderland Paper Pack, and Spellbinder's Classic Scallop Edgeabilities Die to cut the mauve piece of CS. I also used Spellbinder's Snowflake die, and cut a strip of silver glitter paper to add to the card. I stamped the sentiment with black ink and added Crystal Ice Stickles to the patterened paper.
Stickles don't photograph well, lol.


Stamps Used: Hero Arts Stamps-Greatest Gifts, CTMH-Snow Days.

Card #3
It's difficult to see, but I used dark blue CS to mat the card image, it's not black. I used Cuttlebug's Grace's Frame EF again, and stamp the sentiment with blue ink and the image with black ink. I added a yellow rhinestone to the star.


Stamps Used: CTMH-Glory To God
