7 More Christmas Cards

 Hello...I'm amazed that after months of not creating I'm on a roll with these Christmas Cards. Perhaps it's my Christmas spirit expressing itself. I enjoy making these little wreaths and they complete a card so quickly. I have several card bases ready and a whole stack of toppers, so when I have an idea they come together quickly.

This is a spin on the round ornament cards and it came together beautifully, both the positive and the negative cuts.

The next two still need a sentiment, perhaps I'll get some stamps out and add a sprig of green. You may have noticed that the outside of my cards are all about the die cuts. I'm a messy stamper and end up ruining too many cards I spent a lot of time on.

 Here's another shaker fun. I think I have the technique down now, though I always improve with repetition.

Here's a card I recycled by fussy cutting the buck. I have a hunter in mind 
for this charming red flannel deer.

After all the fancy glitter and foil I adore this simple card.

As I create these cards it becomes clear to me who the recipient will be. Does that happen while you're creating or do you start with a person in mind?

I have a board meeting this afternoon so I'm not sure I'll get to play today. But I'll be back soon to share some more.
