Quick Christmas Cards


I came up with this quick and easy design to use up some gold mirror doilies I've had in my stash for a while. I borrowed the Holly Jolly stamp from a friend, and embossed it with gold on red cardstock; using a matching punch to cut the image. I added a white banner that was embossed with a Snow Globe ef from Sizzix, and added a sparkly piece of gold sticky ribbon that was cut into a banner and placed beneath the sentiment. The card base was embossed with a  Cuttlebug Holly Branch ef.

I'm sharing this with the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge which is "Make it Sparkle."

Here are a couple more cards I made with this design...


Green...


and Vanilla.


Thanks for stopping by and make it a great Thursday!

Very nice cards. I love them all but the vanilla seems to show the background embossing the best. Hope you have a nice day today.

This is a nice design for your mirror gold doilies. All the embossing is fun and I do like that sparkly ribbon! It is a nice idea to get three out of one layout!

These are all gorgeous. I really like the vanilla one. The embossing folder on the banner is very nifty.
