November Christmas Cards

Here are my Christmas cards for Lynne's Christmas Card Challenge over at R-C-S. I am so glad I participated. I haven't counted up the number of cards I have but I know it is more than enough. Now to just finish (yes, I said finish...as in I have already started) my shopping.

This is another card I made for my co-workers this year. It is flat so nothing fancy. I used my Stampendous Santa Tree image and my NEW Elzybells sentiment which reads, When you stop believing in Santa Claus, you get underwear for Christmas. Isn't that cute!?! I colored the image in with markers and set aside. I will be doing a large batch of these.

Card #2. I used TLC cardstock with Making Memories Green Polka-dotted paper. My stamp is one of the cutest Elzybells images I have seen. I matted it and catty-cornered it on the card front then added a cute red gross-grain ribbon. The sentiment on the inside reads, Wishing you a Christmas filled with angel wishes and reindeer kisses! Everyone with me...Awwww!

Here is #3. I used Beate's Weekend Sketch as the layout. I thought it turned out very cute. The polka-dotted paper is from Making Memories. I rounded opposite corners of the image before coloring it in. To finish if off I added faux stitching around the outside and cute ribbon to fill space in the right corner. I love Beate's sketches; I just never seem to have time to play along.

Card #4 if fairly simple. I rounded opposite corners of the card than added this cute snowflake paper, also from MM. I stamped the Santa Tree image and mounted it on green cardstock. To bring more green into the card, I colored a few of the snowflakes in.

Last, but not least, this is cute card disguised as a gift. I added this yummy candy stripe paper from MM on green cardstock. I added a green strip across the middle and distressed the edges. The sentiment on the tag is the same Reindeer kisses sentiment used on a previous card.

Thanks for stopping by! Hope ya'll had a great weekend!
