Christmas Cards

My evenings this week have been spent making Christmas cards, when I wasn't attending Christmas parties of course! I made 4 of the below designs. This way I can build my stash really quickly.

Whisper White cardstock, Rose Red DSP, Scallop Border punch, Star punches (large and small), Short & Sweet stamp set, Rose Red ink.

Old Olive and Whisper White cardstock, Old Olive and Real Read classic ink pads, Old Olive and Real Red Stampin' Write markers, Always Artichoke grosgrain ribbon, Peaceful Wishes stamp set.

Wild Wasabi, Blue Bayou (textured) and Whisper White cardstock, Chocolate Chip classic ink pad, Summer Sun and Chocolate Chip Stampin' Write markers, Wild Wasabi and Blue Bayou ink refills, blender pen, cotton tip, Pewter Hodpodge Hardware, Mellow Moss gingham ribbon, City of David stamp set.

Whisper White and Handsome Hunter cardstock, Rose Red DSP, Versamark ink pad, silver embossing powder, heat gun, Handsome Hunter classic ink pad, Scribble (Doodle) This and Occasional Greetings stamp sets.
The last card was inspired by a card made by Karen Robinson, my SU upline's upline. I added more leaves than Karen had but the basic idea is the same.
I made small alterations re positioning of the elements on some of the cards just to keep myself interested but I found that making in multiples of 4 meant I could make at least 4 if not 8 cards in one evening. It sure speeds up the process!
I hope that you have found something here to inspire you!
