Mistletoe & Holly Christmas cards

Hello everyone!
I know, I am hanging my head down in shame! I have tried several times to create so that I can share with you but unfortunately health issues have put that on hold. More on my health will come very soon on my main blog, Jo's Scrap Shack. Make sure you follow that blog so that you can get the update on me.

Well good news is that I was able to squeeze in some time to make my Christmas cards for this year. So happy that I receive my Paper Pumpkin kits each month because November's kit has allowed me to create these 10 gorgeous cards!!! Take a look!

Here is card 1.

Here is card 2. 


This kit was amazing to work with! As you can see from the 2 card styles that I made, the cards were simple, not over the top but look like I spent a good amount of time on them. I literally put all ten cards together in under an hour!

The kit came with the ten card bases already scored, 2 of each design. It came with the exclusive stamp set that included the "noel" stamp, the "seasons greetings" sentiment and the inside sentiment on both cards, "Happy Holidays". It also came with a holly leaf stamp, a "joy" stamp that is the same as the "noel" one, and another sentiment that says, "merry & bright". The kit also came with a cherry cobbler ink spot, 10 printed envelopes, 3 sheets of dies cuts (the misteltoe and holly leaves), 5 large squares and 5 small squares, 50 white pearls, 50 red pearls, 5 large rectangles, 8 yards of linen thread, 200 adhesive dots, and 2 sheets of two different sizes of dimensionals. If you ask me, that is an amazing kit and all the work has been done for you! No hunting for matching papers, no cutting, no scoring! Definitely worth the $19.95 value!

If you like this particular kit for yourself or would like to try out Paper Pumpkin, just go HERE .  

My hope for the new year is that I will be able to do more crafting and really try to build up my card stash. I have a lot of things on my "to do" list and I hope that the new year will bring me better health, so that I will be able to accomplish all of these things. My desire is to create for you and bring you new ideas, techniques and products that you can get inspired and motivated to make beautiful crafts too! I hope each and every one of you have a beautiful holiday season! Happy Holidays!!!!

Until next time, Enjoy life's blessings~
