Easy Christmas Cards

Hey there - how's your 12th of the 12th of the 12th going?

I braved the shops for a bit more Chrissy shopping - so much fun - I love it:)

I needed more Christmas Cards and have been thinking about an "easy-ish" design that I could use to make a few cards, sorta the same but also different iykwim;-)

So when I saw THIS POST by Heather Nichols of Papertrey Ink fame I was sold! One night's work and this is what I have.....

Set of 5 Xmas Cards

4 Xmas Cards

If you check out Heather's post (complete with video) you'll see she uses glitter on her cards. I had something quicker and  easier than that.....a little something I picked up at Spotlight last week and am so glad I did.....

AC Glitter paper
American Crafts Glitter Paper !

I just punched 2" circles using my Fiskars punch and decorated them with punched strips using a variety of border punches. The sentiments and hanging "doovey" are from Papertrey Ink's Holiday Button Bits. 

Green bauble card

Papers are from My Mind's Eye - last Christmas.

Look at that sweet little sparkly bauble - they just make me happy! I would love to make more of these - if I only had more time!

Here's a little peek at the inside too....with it's own matching mini bauble....

Alrighty I'm outta here - we're off to a Cocktail Party tonight so I better go and get dolled up - don't you just love this time of the year :)
