Quick and Easy Christmas Cards

I need a lot of Christmas cards by November, so I just finished eight easy ones that were so quick to make using Cricut Explore and some pre-designed card bases from the Paper Studio (Simple Elegance and Market Place boxes) and some vellum. I cut snowflakes out of CTMH Sea Glass cardstock using the new Flower Market Cricut cartridge. The Peace word is from Gypsy Wanderings. After creating these I decided to make more using the new Flower Market cartridge for my post tomorrow with more techniques.

Thanks for visiting. Come back tomorrow for more Christmas ideas! I'll be part of a blog hop using new products!

I'm sharing these cards with the following challenges:
Crimbo Crackers #112 - Anything Goes
Double D Challenge - polka dots
Sparkles Monthly Challenge #82 - Christmas in July
The Glory of Christmas #90 - use Kraft paper
Time Out Challenge #63 - Holiday with optional "No Stamping"

So pretty - the vellum adds a really pretty, soft touch and I love the crisp snowflake!

Lovely cards! I love the die cut snowflake and sentiment! Thanks for taking the Time Out to play with us!

Love the vellum - it really helps the other die cuts to stand out against the spotty DP. Thank you for playing at Christmas at Sweet Stampin'. Tracey x

Great cards - I really like how the vellum tag allows the polka dot background to shine through! Thanks for playing along with us at Time Out!
