Eight Easy Christmas Cards

 
Aren't these cards beautiful. These cards are so simple that you can prepare them and finish them on the run. I cut these cards out on standard A2,  ran them through my Cuttlebug using the new Anna Griffin embossing folder Dancing Holly. I used the leftover scraps to adorn the inside and just made one simple little stamp and the inside was done.

 
 Then I packed up all the little pieces and my adhesives for the outside of the card placing them in little baggies. I took them to work and finished them on my lunch break.

 
I used my Zip Dry glue to adhere the wreath to the Joy base.
 
 
Then I used foam tape and adhered them to the front of the card.
 

I used Christmas red stickles for the little bow on the wreath. I used the Creative Critters 2 on this card.

 
Here is a close up of the papers. They are from the DCWV Christmas Memories stack and really looked beautiful on the finished card.

 
In just a half an hour I had 8 cards completed and finished all the cards I am making this year! I then spent the next 2 days addressing envelopes on my break and then stuffed and have even mailed all 65 of my cards out. I am so thankful they are done!
