Christmas is coming and it's time to get those cards done!

I like to make a few special Christmas cards for my friends that I know will appreciate a handmade card.   This one is an easel card and I've filmed a video to show you how easy these cards are to make.  As usual, I've used a lot of diecuts on my card, if you don't have similar dies, you can substitute basic square or rectangle shapes. 

Tip:  You can create this card and many others simply by purchasing just the Graphic 45 Ephemera Cards and the 6 x 6 Patterns and Solids pad along with any cardstock.  The best thing is that the images in the Ephemera Cards give you a quick, but pretty card front.   Embellish with hand made flowers or a bit of ribbon and you've got all you need for a set of cards.

The Merry Christmas sentiment is Creative Embellishments chipboard that I've heat embossed with Stampendous shabby white embossing enamel.  I love that the font matches that used in the Christmas Carol collection!
