Easy Christmas Cards Continued

Alright so here are the cards using the template all the way :D.



Supplies : Serendipity paper, Dutch Blue Textured CS, Chocolate and Colonial White CS, Twill Ribbon, Snow Friends, and Say it in Style Stamp Sets by CTMH

This time I tried using an image stamp to see how it would look with the template and I think it's darling! Instead of adding a bulky bow, this time I just punched snowflakes out from the same paper I stamped the images on for a nice flat embellishment (punch by Marvy). These are flat so they will mail out with just a single stamp, yay! The Dutch Blue Cardstock is textured and double sided. One side is the regular color and the other a lighter shade so I flipped which side I was using with every other dutch blue piece to give the cards more contrast and color. I stamped 'Happy Holidays' from the Say it in Style stamp set for a sentiment as I find it hard to not have one on the front of the card, lol. Anyway, these went by super quick even with the coloring.


Again I used a different image for each batch of cards. I also tried to change up the way I put the dutch blue/ lighter blue combo so that they have a better variety.


I hope you all enjoy the cards! I think I actually have enough Christmas cards for this year now. But that won't stop me from making more, lol! While I probably won't be doing any more quick and easy Christmas cards like this (well I don't think I will be anyway, lol) I will still be making some bella and other fun Christmas cards, I'm pretty sure of it ^_~

I love the cards and agree with Laurel in that I never would have thought to use the lovely serendipity papers for Christmas cards. They look perfect with that cute little snowman. I definitely want to try out your template.

And thank you for the award. As with Pat, it's my first blog recognition. And it made my day as well.

I adore the colours you have used in these cards - not christmas colours to me, but they look so yummy!
