It's Beginning to Look A lot Like Christmas


 I made this card for Make Something Monday with Two Chicks Designs (https://www.facebook.com/TwoChicksDesigns). All the paper is Recollections Bright Christmas Printed Cardstock, the Christmas tree stamp is from Hampton Art the set I used to make the cards below, Trendy Twine Candy Cane, and the "Merry Christmas" sticker and the star sticker on the tree is from Darice Silent Night sticker book that I bought from Michael's around Christmas last year.
 I made 2 of these cards last year and didn't want to finish making the rest so I saved them for this year! Now all I have to do is write in them when it's closer to Christmas! I decided to mask 2 of them with "Jesus is the Reason for the Season"- a stamp that I bought from Michaels and "Peace Joy & A Very Merry Christmas" just to see what they would look like.I tried to make each card different. The little bling/lights came with the set and became too tedious and lost their stickiness so I decided not to use them in the last 4. The bling I did use on the bottom far right card is from my stash except the star. I may make a few more like the first one, but with another Christmas 12x12 pad I have that has more variations of paper. I ran out of photo squares so I won't be able to make any cards for awhile unless I use my Recollections foam squares. The candy cane sticker on the far right card is from Momenta sticker pack. The ribbon used on the top middle card "tis the season to be jolly" is Bobbin Ribbon.
I had fun making these and can't wait to make a few more closer to Christmas! TFL and have a great week!
