Christmas Cards

Hi! T.G.I.F! :)

Friday at last. I have another busy day at work ahead of me, BUT – I’ll meet up with an old friend for a “long time no see” After Work chit chat. Cava, seafood and catching up is on the program and I can’t wait. :)

I’m still working on my Christmas cards… Yeah, I know… Need to get these babies OUT! Last year I decided to make them ahead, following one or many of the year long Christmas challenges. I didn’t do one… Next year!

Anyway, this week I whipped up a batch of cards. I did in all six of these, using a few old stamps from I don’t know where. I only know that the Santa and the inside fellow are from Swedish manufacturers and sadly underused.

Merry Christmas 1

I had a plan of keeping it simple and with few layers. I kept it simple but few layers is a failure. I ended up with 4 layers on the outside and 2 layers on the inside, except the cardbase… I simply need to mat my paper.

Merry Christmas 2

I used Basic Grey Aspen Frost papers. I LOVE these papers. The colors are wonderful, and the snowflake patterned paper is one of my all time favorite seasonal papers. ♥♥♥

Here is the sketch from Try Stampin’ on Tuesday that I used:

Here is another card using the same papers:

Some serious fussy cutting on this one. The stamp is from Heartfelt Creations. I used this sketch from Sunday Sketch and Stamp.

Have a FAB Friday! Thank you for stopping by!!!
