Quick Christmas Cards

Who doesn't love to make quick Christmas cards?  And when they use up hoarded scraps, too, what could be better?

The first one uses a sentiment from Inspired By Stamping's Elegant Christmas Sentiments, and puh-lenty of paper scraps from Stampin' Up!:


The second one is not really a scrap-user, but helped me dig into my plentiful supply of K & Co. goodies.


Those K & Co. pretties always help me make cards in a jiffy.  The sentiment sticker and evergreen garland border are from them.  The patterned paper is old My Mind's Eye, I think.


I need to get some more mini jingle bells.  They look so cute on a card, don't they?
Thanks for coming by today!

Wonderful use of paper! The bells are cute, but they don't mail well - ask me how I know...

The house is quiet, the snow is starting to fall (we are in our first winter storm warning), and I have my first cup of morning coffee. Catching up on some of your beautiful card posts. Colleen, these Christmas cards made with scraps are just the perfect quick, last minute cards to make on a day like today. They are ALL so festive and bright and I love each and every one of them! Merry Christmas!
