Christmas Cards, part 1

Hello crafty friends!

I've been a busy bee making Christmas cards.  Yes, I'm a bit early but I like to be prepared AND I'm hoping to sell a few sets either on Etsy or eBay.  If there's a card you'd love to have a set of, let me know and I can hook you up! 

This first one is probably the easiest one I made because it's all Cricut cutting.  The card itself comes from the Quilted Christmas cartridge, and the "Merry Christmas" is from the Teresa Collins Dec 25th cartridge.  I added some buttons, bling, and stickles.

This next one is also from the Quilted Christmas cartridge, and the stamped sentiment is from a CTMH set called Glory to God (which I used again in another card, posted below).

This next one was simple too; I embossed the green glitter paper, used an SU! ornament punch on vellum, which I also ran through various embossing folders, and added the twine.  There's a stamped sentiment on the inside of the card.

Finally, my favorite from these sets, again using the Glory to God stamp set (available for purchase HERE).  I copied an idea from Jennifer McGuire.  On a piece of white paper I stamped with VersaMark, embossed with black and silver (the stars), and then used sponges and ink to the background.  Next, I punched a circle out of my card, which I also inked with Bamboo ink and then stamped the same stars with Sky ink, and I placed my embossed piece behind the circle.  Finally, I stamped and embossed the "Peace on Earth" sentiment on the front. 

That's all I'll share for now-- stay tuned for more Christmas card inspiration!
