Fast & Easy Holiday Cards

I found these layouts on Papertrey Ink's website. They just came out with some new holiday stamps and they have some easy layout ideas using them. I used what I had in house :) Here is the link:http://nicholeheady.typepad.com/capture_the_moment/2008/10/holiday-card-ma.html They also have a cheat sheet for making 25 cards really fast. What a great idea, who couldn't use that? You could also multiply it by however many cards you usually make each year. Well here are the two layouts I used, I only did six of each for my own purposes.

The first one I used my Marvey Uchida 3"Scalloped Circle Punch and my Creative Memories circle cutters. I found the cute snowman stamp at a "cleaning out my stash sale" for about a dollar. The designer paper is by Basic Grey and the red is Misc. I colored it with Prisma Colored pencils and added stickles for the sparkly snow effect.

The second card I used some Cosmo Cricket Holiday paper. The other paper is misc. from Joann's. The stamp is part of The Best Yet hostess set from Stampin Up. The holly was punched from a punch I bought last year and never used. I used my 2" Marvey Uchida Scallop punch and my Creative Memories punch for the circles. These cards were all done on Kraft card stock. TFL!!
