Finishing Up Christmas Cards


I'm getting close to finishing up my Christmas cards for this year. I'll admit to being ready to being done!  I have all the envelopes addressed too...waiting for the last few to be completed.   So, on Sunday, when I was working on more, I was looking for inspiration.  Jay Gee's Nook was the perfect spot. I love the neutral tones on the inspiration below so I used the fun patterned stamp from CAS-ual Fridays Countdown set (stay tuned for more from this tomorrow)...and the sentiment from Verve.  Love the touch of twine, the star and the gem.

And in the spirit of easy mailing, I created a few one layer cards as well using Technique Tuesday and WPlus 9 stamps.  Hope your Christmas creating is going well!

  18. When I think of you and possibly a "style" that you have, these cards would be the poster children. Beautiful, a touch of rustic, clean and stunning!

  19. Lynn, what amazing single layer cards! I did the same thing (but still have to post them) - now that I live in Canada, I've got to watch the cost of postage :) Just amazing inspiration!
