Simple Christmas Cards


I've been busy this weekend, bulk making Christmas cards... I left it a bit late, and have had to go down the quick and simple route for the majority of my cards.

I had some mini (well 9 x 9cm) card blanks in my drawer and I got cracking, bulk making cards...

I think they look lovely, with a background stamp stamped on top of the green card stock with Bundled Sage distress ink, and the sentiment added to the pennant (I don't have a pennant die cut, so cut my own - I did make a template first though, to make sure I got the dimensions right!) I found a couple of snowflake dies from years ago... I rarely reach for these, but they are a lot quicker than dies when making in bulk!  Some co-coordinating twine tied in a little bow finishes these off .  Actually, all the cardstock I used was scraps - far too small to be usable on a big project, so these have been made for next to nothing :-)

And once I got going I had 14 made quite quickly.  The bonus of hand cutting the pennants is that I had a reverse too!!

I really like how these turned out - quick, simple, but stunning...

Please may I enter these challenges

Thanks for stopping by, have a great week
