O Christmas Cards!

Maybe it's the lack of caffeine pumping through my veins this morning, but I'm feeling at a loss for words. In lieu, here are several photos of the Christmas cards I made this weekend to accompany the homemade treats we are handing out to teachers, neighbors and friends:

This first one was for my sister and her BF. It's tied at the bottom to keep her from peeking at the gift card within. (And don't you be untying either sis!)

It's misted to give the look of a snowy day.

I like the pieced background of this next set.

Gold looks so pretty with traditional Christmas colors!

A little bling makes a big statement!

Gosh, that snowflake punch and stamp were really put to good use this season!

And one more closeup. Too bad I don't have many more of those bracelet gems - they are so pretty! All these cards were created with Basic Grey Figgy Pudding and Wassail. The papers still feel so modern even though they are a few years old.

I'll be linking these up at Paper Issues...don't forget to stop by and link up all the Christmas related projects you've been working on this season!!
