Christmas Cards! Yes, Already!

Hi everyone.

Those of you that know me know that I'm very organised, to the point of obsessiveness. So, true to my style, I already have some Christmas cards to share with you.

This first one is with the new and delightful Stitched Stockings stamp set that is available to purchase right now, together with the matching Stocking Tag Punch. So cute!

The sentiment is from Many Merry Messages and the stamp on the little tag is from a retired set called Vintage Labels. The tag was punched with the Jewellery Tag Punch and embellished with an adhesive crystal.

Colours used in this card were Old Olive, Real Red and Basic Black.

This next card uses all the previously listed supplies, but is a little more intricate, also using a brick embossing folder and some More Mustard cardstock for the fire.

This next Christmas card was made using a non-Christmas stamp set. I stamped the baubles with one of the hot air balloons from the cute Up, Up & Away stamp set. I stamped it in, rock 'n' rolled it in black and embellished them with ahdesive crystals.

The sentiment is from Many Merry Messages.

The final card was inspired by this card by Lisa Young. Mine was made using the gorgeous Delightful Decorations stamp set and matching Ornament Punch. They were stamped in Rich Razzleberry and rock 'n' rolled in Basic Grey.

The sentiment is from Many Merry Messages. The white strip of Whisper White cardstock was torn with the Tearing Edge ruler and glitter glue placed along the torn edge. The centre bauble was embellished with an adhesive crystal.

Sorry that the photos are a little dark. I was in a hurry, as always seems to be the case.

Well, bye again.

Hope to see you soon.

Great lot of cards Andrea. I used to pride myself on being organised (yes to the point of obsessiveness) but somewhere along the way I dropped a ball or two. Once that happens it's hard to pick them up again.

You've inspired me and I may have to CASE a couple of your Chrissy cards. Thanks for sharing.
