Super Quick Christmas Cards

Hello and welcome here. It's that time of year to start thinking about Christmas cards. I'm part of a Craft Show in November and lots of people liked my $1 Christmas cards from last year, so I thought I would make more this year....which means I need to make simple, cheap (not look cheap though), fast Christmas cards.

All Cards: 4.25" x 5.5"

The background is Cuttlebug's Snowflake EF, I added the sentiment in black and matted it with red CS, and cut the 'poinsettia' with Spellbinder's Anemone Flower Topper and finished it off with a pearl.


Stamps Used: Hero Arts-Greatest Gift, CTMH-Let Us Adore Him & Snow Flurries.

I embossed Spellbinder's Snowflake on white CS matted with mauve CS, added the sentiment with mauve ink, and finished it off with some mauve pearls.


Stamps Used: Our Daily Bread-Blessed Christmas, CTMH-All the Best & Glory to God.

For this card I inked up my acrylic block with blue ink, misted it with some water and 'stamped' it on white CS. I then stamped the trees in black, added white Flower Soft topped with Stickles, added a piece of blue velvet ribbon...I had a big sparkle brad but thought that it cost too much to use on a $1 card, so I cut some circles from silver sparkle paper...I added a sentiment in black.

Here you can see the Flower Soft and the sparkle of the Crystal Ice Stickles on top.


Stamps Used: Penny Black-Snow Dust, Hero Arts-Greatest Gift, CTMH-Peace On Earth & Snow Days.

I loved how these turned out and I hope people will grab them up at the Craft Show. I have 3 more Super Quick Christmas Cards to share, so be sure to check back.
