Christmas Cards

I decided to work on some Christmas cards today. I only have "18" different ones picked out that I like! :) I used the Cricut to cut out the square. You could always cut out a 4x4 square, use the corner rounder and then the 1/8 punch to punch out the corners. I put Chocolate Chip cardstock (scraps) over the holes on the back of the card to give it more dimension.
On this card I used:
Ruby Red Cardstock
Kraft Cardstock
Chocolate Chip Cardstock
Ski Slope Designer Series Paper
Winter Post Stamp Set
Lovely as A Tree (one of my favs)
Chocolate Chip Ink

Again, I used my Cricut to cut out the circles but you could always use the Coluzzle or The Big Shot. These are two different circles placed together with a punch from the Round Tab Punch. I cut the Chocolate Chip cardstock to 1 7/8 wide and the Whisper White to 1 3/4 wide. Adhere them together and placed them on the front of the circle. Then I just cut around the ends to round these two cardstocks. The circle is 4x4 so the strips were 4 1/4. I saw this on Splitcoaststampers as an ornament and decided to make it a card. I am pleased with the way it turned out.

On this card I used
Bashful Blue Cardstock
Chocolate Chip Cardstock
Whisper White Cardstock
Chocolate Chip Ink
Round Tab Punch
Neutrals eyelets
Silver Cord
I will be starting my 12 days of Christmas next week so stay tuned for that. I have decided to start it on Monday the 8th as it is easier for me to start a new project at the beginning of the week instead of in the middle! :) I will post more on that starting next week. Have a great weekend and remember if you need anything you can always go to my website and place an order. Any orders placed by Dec. 15th are guaranteed for Christmas delivery.

Thanks for looking!
