Quick and Easy Christmas Cards

I didn’t have much time this evening for crafting, but I’m going to be away this weekend so I knew if I didn’t make something tonight, I probably wouldn’t get anything done for another week.  So I turned to my clip art collection, which is mostly from PcCrafter.  I quickly located a very cute Christmas Sampler collection by Laurie Furnell, one of my favorite artists.  I printed a few images on white card stock, then cut them out with my oval cutting template (Coluzzle). 

The first one I finished was this snowman.


I found some cute background papers for the snowman in the Christmas Stack from DCWV as well as metallic card stock in the Metallic Stack from DCWV.  I used decorative scissors to cut the wavy border in the background.

Next, I chose a skinny little Christmas tree that reminded me a little of a Charlie Brown tree.


I cut a gold border for it using my oval cutter.  Next, I printed “Oh Christmas Tree” using the pc Catch a Star font from PcCrafter.  The corners seemed a little bare, so I used one of my corner punches to punch corner decorations.
