4 Quick and Easy Christmas Cards


Good morning everyone!! Look what I have been doing for the last two days....using up my scraps to make some fun, quick, Christmas cards. I just hate to waste those small pieces of designer paper so all the cards I made are 4 inches and smaller.
The CHF's Kim Hughes Deer Image was stamped with Memento Brown and colored with copics. The sentiment was also stamped with Memento Brown and Rubbernecker snowflakes were stamped in Baja Breeze. Basic Grey Figgy Pudding paper, a punched snowflake and hardware clip with ribbon finish it off.
The next one was so easy...the Prima Poinsettia and leaves were attached with glue dots next to the Rubbernecker sentiment layers that were cut out with Nestabilities. Ribbon and Imaginisce dp are the only other elements to this quick yet pretty card.






The adorable little Taylored Expressions Cupcake Snowman was stamped with Memento Black and colored with copics. The background square panels were punched out of Real Red, Garden Green and The Paper Studio dp from Hobby Lobby. They were layered onto the Stampin UP dp and PTI Ribbon is the only embellishment.

The Rubbernecker Snowflake on the next card was stamped with Versamark and embossed with red ep. After cutting it out, I mounted it on the punched square medallian. To make the medallian, I used a 2 3/4 inch piece of black cs, punched each side with the SU scalloped border punch making sure to stay in the center of the side in order for the ends to remain uncut with the punch. So easy and yet looks sooo cool!!! Tiny pearls in the corners are the only embellie...can't believe I didn't add ribbon...yikes!!!







I just love these Prima Poinsettias...found them at Michael's.












The closeup picture makes the red paper look pink...I just wanted you to see the details of the snowflake.















The small Rubbernecker snowflakes were stamped over the sentiment with Baja Breeze. The background layer under the sentiment is SU dp.

I will have more quick cards for you tomorrow....since it's almost 1:00 AM, I think I better get to bed!! Have a good night and see ya tomorrow!!
