Christmas in February

 I needed a few more Christmas cards so that I had enough for this month and I could not think of anything for our theme of Red and Turquoise in my stamp group until I remembered this card kit that came with a magazine, I made some cards from it last year when I needed some quick at the end.  They have the perfect colors for the challenge.

  • Make Special cards - Issue 5 Xmas 2016, wreath and papers
  • Spellbinders - Labels Eleven die
  • ODBD - Mini tags die
  • Nuvo - Crystal drops - Autumn Red for flower centers on wreath

  • Spellbinders - Labels three die
  • Nuvo Crystal glaze on berries

With this last one I decided to add a bit of gold to it. In this cardmaking set the have the already made toppers tags but they also have a stamp set and I stamped the holly and colored with markers to put on either side of the sentiment tag.

  • PPD - Stitched Curvy Coved die
  • Holly stamp colored w/markers
  • Sequins
So far so good keeping up with the Christmas cards :)

Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by today,

Your cards are all so cute as can be. Now is the time to be working on them. I started mine. I usually make 10 to 20 of the same card. Makes for faster production. Have a great day!
