We've returned from a lovely family Thanksgiving having stuffed ourselves silly with turkey, mashed potatoes, stuffing, and pumpkin pie! I'm heading into a busy week and won't have a lot of time for card-making, so I worked into the wee hours last night to play along with Less is More and CAS-ual Fridays. I went a little crazy with the Less is More challenge, a bit of bling, and made five very simple Christmas cards to complete my collection for the year. Now I've just got to write them, stamp and address them, and pop them into the mail.
The first two cards use a Martha Stewart snowflake stamp set and were inspired by this card I saw on Pinterest and this old sketch at Clean and Simple Stamping. If the snowflakes were a little bit lower, I think it would be pretty with a sheer organza ribbon at the top, but I don't happen to have any at the moment.
The next two cards use the fabulous sketch at CAS-ual Fridays. For the first card I used the same Martha Stewart snowflakes and the second card uses Hero Arts Merriest Christmas Wishes. The little star gems are by Recollections.
Finally, I used these tiny Recollections flowers to make this super simple Christmas card. I simply added a big pink gem to the center of each. I do like red and pink together for Christmas.
Well, if you've made it this far, thanks for sticking with me. :) I had fun playing with bling last night, and I'm thrilled to report that my Christmas cards are very nearly finished. Most years, I would just be getting started. What a refreshing change!
