A Set of Christmas Cards

Here's a set of Christmas cards I made today. I wanted these to be quick cards to through together but in the end it took a lot of time. Most of the time was spent trying to figure out where and how to put this together. I had all the supplies ready to go. I paired up this Echo Park Everybody Loves Christmas with SU River Rock card stock and ribbon. I really think they look great together. This sentiment is from StampInsanity Morgan's Star Stamp Set. It's such a sweet message that I let it be the focal point. I sponged the sentiment panel with River Rock ink and Real Red for the first card and Bermuda Bay (meant to use Baja Breeze, oops) for the second card.





Challenges:
Pile It On 46- What Winter Means
Digistamps 4 Joy 6- Inspired by Christmas
The Pixie Cottage Challenge 45- Ribbons and Bows
Really Reasonable Ribbon 12- Christmas Theme
One Stitch at a Time 40- Choose a Season or Event
