Christmas cards

So I still haven't finished my Christmas cards. They are on the top of my list this week! I attended the crop at Felicia's Scrapbooks last night. It was the first time in her new location. Since everything was moved around, I of course found many things that I had not noticed or wanted before. One of those things were packets of 6 cards and envelopes by Kaiser Kraft. The cards and envelopes were shimmery and a great bargin at 1.99. I'm not sure I could buy paper and envelopes (especially colored envelopes) for $2.

I received a prize from Paper Crafts Mag a few weeks ago when they had some blog candy for World Card Making Day. The prize package was the full line of Alpine Frost by SEI. The papers are so beautiful and they came with a ton of embellishments to choose from. The colors were not colors I normally use for Christmas but they matched a couple of the Kaiser Kraft card sets mentioned above.

This is what I created when I combined the two. The papers were just perfect so I didn't feel the need to embellish much. Once I got the basic sketch in mind they all came together rather quickly.

I also added a small scroll rub-on to each envelope flap. Now I only have 20 more cards to go!
