Christmas Cards, Part 1

Though I'm still not quite done, I now have the satisfaction of finishing 120 handmade Christmas cards and sent out. I usually semi-mass produce the cards, i.e., I make 6-12 of each design so I don't get bored. Starting today and over the course of the next 3 weeks, I'll be showing you some of the cards I made in groups and hope that you'll find inspiration in them.

This group was one of my elaborate designs. I stamped the globe from my Heirloom Ornaments set and punched it out with a 1-3/4 in circle punch. The lacy circle is by Spellbinders and was stamped with the vintage ribbon image from Vintage Borders. The sentiments are from SRM Stickers Sentiments Happy Holidays.

Here is the set with different sentiments from the same SRM Stickers Sentiments Happy Holidays set.

Finally, this card is for StampTV's Sketch spotlight challenge today. I used the Heirloom Ornaments set again for this one (die cut with Spellbinders Heirloom Ornaments dies), along with Fanciful Tags for the sentiment. The papers are Cosmo Cricket Jolly by Golly.
