Last minute 30 Christmas cards with Letters to Santa DSP

Oh my!  I need to send out my Christmas cards.  Here I’ve been helping everyone else complete theirs and I haven’t done mine.  I needed to make 30 Christmas cards fast!  I happened to have the Letters to Santa DSP and the Merry & Type stamp set so I set out to make 30 cards from half of the Letters to Santa DSP package.  We’ll here they are!  I primarily used the Merry & Type stamp set but I did also use the Tiny Tags and Tags Til Christmas sets.  I provide PDF instructions to show you how to cut the paper and card recipes for all 30 cards.  Below is a list of products used.

Fashion Inspired Bay Leaf Square Wreath card

Pals Paper Arts has a Fashion Inspiration {Holiday} challenge this week.  The greenery and the red along with the rich tapestry vest I was inspired to create the card below.  I made a bay leaf square wreath for my card.  I used the Petal Blossoms Builder punch and the Bird Punch.  Behind my wreath I embossed a Very Vanilla  panel with the Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder and sponged it with Gold Encore ink.

The base of my wreath is a  square frame then I sponged the edge of the leaves with Always Artichoke ink and used my Simply Scored to score the leaves.  I then glued the leaves all along the frame.  The holly leaves were created using the Bird Builder punch and the berries are pearls colored with a red Sharpie.  I finished my wreath with Real Red Satin Ribbon and an antique brad.  I then stamped my sentiment and embossed it with gold and curled the banner a bit.
