More Christmas cards :)

I hope you are feeling festive! Because I have a couple more Christmas cards for you! These cards were part of our Christmas Stamp-a-stack which we held today. We had 14 ladies altogether and had heaps of fun and I think everyone left feeling pretty happy that they had *already* completed 12 Christmas cards!

This card is really quick and easy. Just trace a circle in pencil on the front of your Very vanilla card and then stamp the medium Old olive snowflakes around the circle. Pop the small Real red snowflakes in between and voila! You have a wreath. A touch of Riding Hood Red Striped Grosgrain ribbon and the card is completed. The stamp set we used here is Snow Swirled.

This one took a little longer... But basically you just stamp your Real red Christmas decorations onto Whisper white cardstock (Using the Stampamajig here for perfect placement is ESSENTIAL!). It is almost impossible to see in the photo but the middle decoration has some dazzling diamonds glitter on it. The ribbon is 1/4" Basic black grosgrain and we used the large oval and delightful Oval Scallop (Spring mini) punches for the sentiment. The stamp sets used are Tree Trimmings (Spring Mini available until end Nov 30) and Best Yet which is a level 1 hostess set.
Thanks for looking!!! Claire xo
