Ode to Cardmaking Joy.....

Cardmaking joy, is buying one AWESOME kit from
Echo Park....yes, that wonderful Season's Greetings
Kit, adding a fav punch, a little bling, a little ink, and
making quick, beautiful cards!!

The first card today, used the gorgeous burgundy
swirl paper, on a black cardstock base. Then just
a 1&1/2" strip of black punched with a lacy punch,
the black polka dot banner strip from the border
sheet, the JOY and tree stickers that are in the kit,
the tree layered on the burgundy swirl and then
black cardstock, frames it just right, and then a bit
of Black Soot Distress Ink around the edges, and
a bit of bling, and it's a finished, simple, but very
elegant card!

Next up is this "picture postcard":

Love that swirly background paper, and the pretty
tree stickers from the sticker set! I ripped a piece
of brown paper, and a piece of kraft paper that I then
inked with Vintage Photo Distress ink. The stamp
sticker on a square of brown cardstock, and then
placed in the upper right corner....and how simple
is that??

Hope you enjoyed today's cards.....I've got to say....

  1. Aw! These are so cute with the trees. Thanks for sharing.


  2. These are both pretty but I find I am drawn to the "JOY" card. That is one heck of a kit. I recieved kits years ago as prizes and they sure didn't look like that.

  3. What beautiful cards. I love each and every one of them. Thanks for sharing.

  4. Your cards are so beautiful Laura. TY Cutter's Creek for featuring her work this week!

  5. These are great Christmas cards! Love the cute trees!
