Christmas Cards

A few cards I made this morning for the family.  I haven't crafted much lately so I really enjoyed digging through all my Christmas papers and getting creative.  So much fun! :)

I really like how this card turned out.  I used the Tim Holtz die for the scalloped rosette and attached a pretty bird die cut from K&Company.  I added extra detail by sewing around the edge of the mats and adding some ribbon.

I actually made the house on the front of the card some time ago and decided to use it today.  I think it is from the Jolly Holidays Cricut cartridge...I think.  I added Glossy Accents to the windows for some shine.  The wreath is made with the Martha Stewart Branch punch.
These two cards were so fun to make.  I used George & Basic Shapes to cut out the ovals on the front of the cards.  The ornament, Christmas tree and Santa are die cuts from K&Company.

Fun, Fun, Fun...did I already mention that? ;)
I was getting tired so the last two are pretty quick and simple.  However, I just had to make one more rosette...these little cuties are so addictive to make.  I just recently got the die to make them and it took me a couple tries to get the hang of how to do it, but now that I've got it...I'm hooked.  Guess that means I need the new Cricut Ribbons and Rosettes cartridge...oh fun! :)  Thanks for looking and have a Wonderful day!
