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!
Thank you for joining me today. I hope you enjoyed today's post. Thank you for your sweet - sweet words of encouragement. You comments inspire me to continue sharing with you! Have a blessed day.

Oh, TY, Sheila, because I need to make about 10 more cards and I really want them to be quick, simple, but impressive, and your cards are just what the doctor ordered. They're elegant.

Super cute card! Which cartridge is the Joy Wreath on? I mailed all 75 of our cards on Monday, and it felt so nice to put them in the mailbox. I'm sure everyone will love our cards, as we all make them with love. Have a wonderful day. BethAnn M.

Love this, simple but looks like you spent hours on them. I'm with BethAnn - which cartridge is this from? I love the font and have been searching my gypsy, but haven't come up with it! Thanks for your help and inspiration.

I love these, too. I can't find the Joy cut either. Could you tell us which cartridge you used?
