Simple Christmas

I am running out of time to make Christmas cards this year, so I have been playing around to find a way to make simple and quick cards. This is what I came up with yesterday. They were fun, easy and I like them.

The Joy card-Stamps are from Papertrey Snowflake Serenade; Paper-Papertrey Pure Poppy, Curious Cryogen White; Ink-Palette Ballet Blue, Prussian Blue (stamped off once), Encore Silver, Papertrey Pure Poppy; Other-Pure Poppy stitched grosgrain (Papertrey), Silver embossing powder, snowflake brad (cut the prongs off and used a glue dot to adhere it to my ribbon), rhinestones (cell phone bling). The Joy is stamped in Encore silver and embossed with silver embossing powder.

The snowman card-Stamps-Ornate Christmas (Inkadinkado), Holiday Wishes (Papertrey); Paper-Curious Cryogen White, Papertrey Pure Poppy; Ink-Palette Ballet Blue, Papertrey pure poppy; Other-pure poppy stitched grosgrain ribbon (Papertrey), button, red Scrapper's Floss

The snowman shows up better in real life than in this picture.
