Quick Christmas Cards

Hi Blogmates hope you are nearly ready for Christmas lol!
These should be the last of my Christmas cards for this year but they are good if you are in a rush.

The main bauble stamp and the snowflake die are by Tim Holtz .
The sentiment stamp is 'Tis the Season'  by Personal Impressions.
I was able to use up lots of printed Christmas papers that I have had for ages and not found a use for.

Started by die cutting the front edge of the card stock.
Then stamped the bauble lots of times in colours which would go well with  the papers.
Any amount of decoupage could be done with this design and  with those cards that would have to be posted I added more stickles instead.
Next, I decorated the front of the card with Christmas style images, anything can be used for this but kept it small so that it didn't detract from the bauble.
Attach the patterned paper on the inside so that it shows through the die cut and place the bauble at an angle on the front.
Finish this with gems and you have it lol! finished.

Hope these are useful to those of you who need a quick card.
Crafty Hugs,

  1. I am catching up with my commenting, I really love that snowflake border and it looks amazing on your cards. A great way, as you rightly say, to use up patterned paper (I have tons and yet rarely use it). I like the stars on the top of the baubles too. Hugs, Anne x
