I'm on a Roll with Christmas Cards!


 Ya know, sometimes you just get on a roll and you can't stop?  Well that's the way it was with these Scallop Circle Swinging Z-fold cards from The Paper Cut!  I love the ease that these cards went together!  The Wild Cherry makes a great background for Santa!  Something to remember this time of year is that it's a great opportunity to pick up some fabulous embellies--these circle figures are actually mini ornaments at Wal-mart in the Christmas aisles-at 4 @ $1.00 they make a great present/card for a friend!
 
 The next one I started on was this Reindeer and snowflake card~Kind of has this country feel to it?  This card base was Hot Fudge and I used a great golden snowflake paper that reversed to the golden stripe.  On the swinging part of the card I cut a red plaid flower circle as a background for the ornament and then added some wooden snowflakes plus some cardstock stickers.



Using an unusual color for Christmas, Sour Apple, I found some great papers and accents to bring out the Penguins' green scarf.  Then I used The Paper Cuts' cardstock called Botanic to cut out some evergreen border/sprigs with my Memory Box die.  The ornament has a Jingle Bell brad at the top!







And now my favorite image in the wintertime!  A Snowman~such a fun snowy scene complete with snowballs.  And using another reversible paper it makes the accents just the right color.  I used a white blank from The Paper Cut but it's called Cryogen White and is SO smooth and great weight! I used the Frostyville die from Memory Box to create the snowfall flurries
