A Couple of Quick Christmas Cards!

Not too many more days to get all those Christmas/Holiday cards done!  I'm loving my new CTMH Art Philosophy cartridge and stamp sets!  They together make creating cards so quick and easy!  Here's where I got mine:  The Craft Closet.  Be sure and let her know Laurie sent you!


Here's what I came up with:

 They are basically the same with just different ribbon!


Simple! Simple! Simple!

This one I played around with Iridescent Medium!
I painted it lightly over the embossed black cardstock to give it a shimmery look.

Recipe:
Card Base: SU Cherry Cobbler 4 1/4" X 5 1/2" (folded)
Card front:    Black  4" X 5 1/4"
Other Cardstock / Paper:  ??? DP from my stash!
Ink:  Cherry Cobbler
Stamps:   CTMH December 25th
Accessories:  Cricut & Art Philosophy Cartridge, Cuttlebug & Snowflakes embossing folder, various ribbon from my stash bin, tree brads & button from Oriental Trading Co.

Thanks so much for visiting me while I am
Hiding in My Craft Room!
