Creating Christmas cards for the Holidays

Wow where does the time go...I have been so so busy getting ready for the Holidays- its been over a month almost since I posted anything on here...Well I have completed over 150 Holiday cards, made all my gifts this year and did 55 pages in my grandsons scrapbook...that's where my extra time has been-creating away!!!!
I will post a few of the cards that I have been making and they're ready to send out this Monday.
                                                                                                                                          and above is the matching tags I made to go with ( so I did about 15 tags for each of the cards). One of my favorite cards. I embossed both the card and the tag and used the negative area for the card and then  saved the cutout of the deer and used it on the tags- 2 for 1 deal here.
I love the look of nature and pinecone on this card- with the burlap and twine added. Really simple with a little stamping on the background and coloring of the pines and cones on the front. Did some doodling and inking and of course a little stickles- made matching tags but not shown here- forgot to take a picture of them.
And the cute little gingerbread men- have to have a few of these cards and tags. Which the card was a Cricut cut and the tags were stamped and added either rick rack or painted (tulip paint) to give the 3-D look and added some buttons on this vintage looking papers from a Christmas paper stack.
 And I also made several cards which I had posted earlier (actually my last post) my favorite one was of Santa which  was embossed- so cute. Well, hopefully I will have a little more free time to post some great layouts of my grandson- that I have worked one in the next few weeks.  Oh yeah, I put up all my decorations and 3 trees this year in my home- so I have been very busy...but everything looks so wonderful- now its time to enjoy it all.  Happy Holidays to All.
