The other day, when all the work was done on the yearbook, I finally had a day where I could sit relaxed and create some cards. I managed to create six cards in one day, which is a rarity for me. Four of these were Christmas cards, my first Christmas cards this year, and quite possibly my last.
I started of with the first one using the Papertrey Ink stamp set Wreath for All Seasons. I love that set, but hadn't had a chance to break it in yet. Also, the only Christmas papers I bought this year, where those from The Girl's Paperie, Tinsel & Twig. They are simply delightful.
Supplies: Cardstock: Bazzill Basics Papers | Patterned Papers: The Girl's Paperie (Tinsel & Twig) | Die: Papertrey Ink (Spiral Notebook Page) | Ribbon: Vandoros from B*Inspired | Clear Stamps: Papertrey Ink (Wreath for all Seasons + Big and Bold Holiday Wishes) | Glitter: Stampin'Up | Ink: Staz'On (Jet Black, Blazing Red) + Rangers Distress Ink (Antique Linen) | Vellum
On the second card I used the same papers, but pulled out the Christmas tree die. I had chosen the 'Happy Holidays' sentiment to stamp on it, but when I was ready to stamp it, it was vanished. I spent about 10 minutes looking for it, cleared my whole desk since it was just there. No, couldn't find it. Later that night, after I had long finished my card and chosen a different sentiment I went searching again and found it stuck on the bottom of my buttons jar.

On my third card I didn't use any patterned paper, just a gorgeous ribbon I bought at B*Inspired on Maling Road.
