Christmas Card Collection

I was contacted by someone who wanted some cards, one in particular for her husband.  Looking for some ideas on Pintrest I came across four, she liked them all so wanted them all, only one for her husband.  LOL  So, I used the ideas and added my own twist to them.  Most of them were made using papers from an old Graphic 45 paper set.  I used some dies on each and some Nuvo Crystal Drops (Ivory Seashell) on the trees.

Hope she likes them all.  Thanks for looking!

Saw your card at 613 Ave C - thank you for sharing it with us! You have made some lovely cards there for your friend! I especially like the simplicity for the stacked presents - pretty, clean design and fairly easy to mail without extra postage! I am always looking for one I can repeat easily when I have a lengthy mailing list!
