A Few Basic Christmas Cards...

Hey yall! Happy Wednesday! It has been one of those days for me. My poor hubby, Brandon, has come down with the stomach flu and is very sick. So I have been taking care of him all day. But once he went to bed, I sat down at my scrappy desk to create a few Christmas cards. Due to time constraints, this years Christmas cards are going to be very basic. I usually like to take my time and do my best with my Christmas cards, but this year, I just do not have the time. So I tried to make some pre-made, pre-printed card bases look as Christmassy as I could. I hope my friends and family will like these. I stamped the sentiment 'Merry Christmas' on the inside of each of these cards with a stamp from The Paper Studio. I also stamped on the back of the envelopes these will be sent in. For that I used a stamp from Studio G that says 'From Our Family To Yours.'

"O' Christmas Tree"
Supplies Used:
1. Card Base: The Paper Studio
2. Cardstock: Die Cuts With a View
3. Patterned Paper: GCD Studios (I think....), Pink Paislee

5. Trim: Chatterbox
7. Border Punch: Martha Stewart Crafts
8. Die Cut Machine: Cricut (Provo Craft)
9. Die Cut Software: Sure Cuts A Lot (Craft Edge), My Scrap Chick

This tree is a paper pieced file from "The Night Before Christmas" set from My Scrap Chick. I used Zap Dots to pop it up for some dimension.

2. Patterned Paper, Border Punch: Martha Stewart Crafts
3. Glitter Glue: Stickles (Ranger)

This was the first time I used my new 'Trim The Tree' cartridge. I love this cartridge...so fancy schmancy!
 "Ho Ho Ho"
Supplies Used:
1. Card Base, Cardstock: The Paper Studio
2. Glitter Glue: Stickles (Ranger)
4. Die Cut Machine: Cricut (Provo Craft)

This Santa is another paper pieced file from My Scrap Chick. I believe it a $1 download...can't beat that. I made this one especially for my nephew Carter. I knew he would like to probably take the Santa Claus off the front and stick it somewhere.
 "Snowman"
Supplies Used:
1. Card Base, Ribbon: The Paper Studio
2. Chipboard Stickers: American Crafts

This one was the most basic card I made. I had this put together and ready to go in like 10 minutes.
 "Pink Reindeer"
Supplies Used:
1. Card Base, Cardstock: The Paper Studio
2. Patterned Paper: My Mind's Eye
3. Trims: JoAnn
4. Border Punch: Martha Stewart Crafts
6. Die Cut Machine: Cricut (Provo Craft)
7. Die Cut Software: Sure Cuts A Lot (Craft Edge), svg file of deer made myself

I think of all the cards I put together today, this one is my favorite. I just love the pinks/greens and the little cutesy deer. And of course if it has trim on it, I'm sold.
 Here's a pic so you can see the dimension the trim gives...
 "Santa's Sleigh"
Supplies Used:
1. Card Base, Cardstock: The Paper Studio
3. Die Cut Machine: Cricut (Provo Craft)
4. Cartridge: Trim The Tree

Another card I made with the new 'Trim The Tree' cartridge. I wish they would put this on the Gypsy update already though. I had to cut this one out like 3 times to get it right. As where if I would of had my Gypsy and this cartridge on it, I could of seen before I cut and not wasted so much paper. So I definitely missed my Gypsy on this one!
 "Iced Iced Baby"
Supplies Used:
1. Card Base, Cardstock, Ribbon, Trim: The Paper Studio
2. Patterned Paper: GCD Studios (I think...)
3. Border/Corner Punch: Martha Stewart Crafts

7. Die Cut Software: Sure Cuts A Lot (Craft Edge), My Scrap Chick
8. Face Stamps: Peachy Keen Stamps
9. Ink: ColorBox (Clearsnap)

These little gingerbread men are having an icing fight I reckon' and I think it is just too darn cute! I giggled the whole time I made this card. I know exactly who I will send this to...a certain young man with a sense of humor like mine....or at least I hope so! LOL! These gingerbread men are from the 'Gingerbread' set of svg's from My Scrap Chick. I think it was $19.99 for the whole set, but was on sale when I purchased it.
 "MC (Merry Christmas)"
Supplies Used:
1. Card Base: The Paper Studio
2. Cardstock: Die Cuts With a View
3. Die Cut Card: Jenni Bowlin Studio
4. Chipboard Alphabet: American Crafts
5. Pearls: Queen & Co

This was the last card I made today. I was going for a simple, clean look. I had a certain person in mind when I designed this one. Her home is very simple, but elegant and I hope this will look good in her home for the holidays.
So that is what I was up to all day. I need to get these sent out and that will be one thing marked off my holiday checklist. I hope you have enjoyed these. Again, they are all super simple but were fun to create!

Have a wonderful rest of your week! Happy Scrappin'!
Pin It!
