Christmas Cards - Made Easy!

Greetings fellow stampers. Today is the official group post for the My Time Made Easy release day. That means that everything is now officially on sale through the store and it means that the Design Team has all come out to share some fun and easy ideas for Christmas cards. Since everyone is busy, our assignment this month was to showcase cards for you that are easy to duplicate. Instead of a set of matching cards I chose to make four different cards so you can see the diversity of styles you can create with this month's new stamps.

First up ... Featuring stamps from the beautiful new Dashing Through the Snow stamp set is my card I call A Sleigh Full of Wishes...

Stamped in a rich burgundy ink and embellished with silver balls, this little sleigh full of goodies is fast and easy to make. The BG is lightly embossed then the burgundy layered sleigh is adhered on top. A little scoring above and below the silver balls adds a little bit of dimension without being complicated or time consuming.

My second card features a classic CAS layout with snowflakes in threes...

Snowflake embossing with my CB on the main card - dotted swiss embossing on the blue layered strip. The main images were stamped on white CS then I did some simple scoring and a little paper piercing. Popped up this layer with dimensionals.  I finished off the card with a few rhinestones for a bit of bling. You could easily whip up a whole set of these in different colors if you wanted to make a quick set of cards as a gift.

A little bit of whimsy with the reindeer for my third card.

I created a simple winter scene with the reindeer and the snow hill stamps. Added some "heart shaped" snowflakes and a simple sentiment for this one. More simple scoring on the main CS layer for texture, an interesting corner punch and flat shiny red embellies for fun. A tiny red rhinestone nose lets you know that this is one special reindeer indeed!

My final card uses stamps from the new Secret Santa stamp set.

Classic red, white and black for this one.  CB embossing, rounded corners, accent strip of black CS. The Santa hat is coated with Polar White Flower Soft for a realistic look and feel. The big bold word Believe and a simple Santa Hat image lead you to the simple inside which says...

That's all for now folks. Four ideas, any one of which can be created in minutes and easily mass produced. I hope you are inspired to design and make your holiday cards. Be sure to drop me a line when you do so I can take a peek at what you do to make Christmas Cards - EASY!!

Be SURE to stop and visit the rest of the team. Each of the gals will have more card ideas to share with you.
