Christmas Wishes

I just LOVE Regina over at The Cutting Cafe!

She's made creating a stack of Christmas cards super simple and inexpensive with two great sentiment sets.

For this card, I used the Fancy Holiday Seasonprintable stamp set with Stampin Up's Scenic Season. The greeting that comes with the stamp says "Season's Greetings". I loved the trees but not the greeting so I simply cut off the SU greeting then copied and pasted this "Christmas Wishes" greeting from the Fancy Holiday Season set using Print Shop. I changed the color to red and printed out two on a single 8-1/2" x 11 sheet of cardstock.

Regina has also taken care of the inside greeting with her Christmas Inside Greetings set. 15 greetings in various fonts to suit anyone's style. After I printed the front of my card, I flipped my cardstock over, put it back in the printing tray, then copied and pasted my inside greeting. Easy...two cards at a time!

I simply inked up the trees, wiped off the bird and colored it with red marker, stamped and liberally coated everything with a dusting of sparkly glittery snow. Everything glitters...wish you could see this IRL. Stacks of Christmas cards for pennies. Thanks, Regina!!
