Okay, let me side-track you for a minute or three to showcase my projects! I’m still adding to my pile of Christmas cards – my plan is to have them all finished and ready to mail by December 1st and that’s only a month away! I created a pair of  ‘traditions’ Christmas cards using almost all of the sentiments in the Say It- Winter Greetings Clear Stamp Set  and a few sentiments from the Mix It Up Clear Stamp Set which just happens to be on sale right now!

These were fun and really easy. I arranged all the sentiments in a collage fashion on my Tim Holtz Stamp Platform and stamped them on a quarter-sheet of cardstock. I duplicated a few of the sentiments to fill in ‘holes’ and then trimmed the edges and cut the piece in two.

I layered the stamped collage pieces on red glitter paper and then two layers of torn vellum, and adhered them to the front of the card bases along with the holly sprays.

I embellished the holly with red Crystal Drops.

The inside is the same on both cards, which I kept very simple with just a stamped sentiment using stamps from the Mix It Up Clear Stamp Set. I’m tickled with how these turned out!
