SIMPLE AND QUICK(ISH) CHRISTMAS CARDS

Thought I had better drop in a brief post (before it has been and gone), showing you some Christmas cards - some made by myself and some by ISABELLE in Canada.  Isabelle has more on her blog HERE.  All of the cards were made in a pretty quick and simple way - which can only be good at this time of the year can't it?

I used Christmas themed stamps from our INDIVIDUALS COLLECTION, some older images and some new, and added glittery sparkly bits and glittery die cuts, and the card background itself I cut from a ready decorated card sheet  (DCWV pad) - which makes the whole thing quick and easy. The cards measure around 4" square.


Plus a few close-ups:







And from Isabelle:



And I particularly love this one:


Do check out Isabelle's lovely BLOG for more cards and ideas.

I'm off to make some more now - still lots to do!
