How are your holiday preparations coming along? In my well-intentioned effort not to stress myself this season, I seem to have "relaxed" just a bit TOO much...LOL. I still have a few presents to shop for (i.e., I have to brave the mall this week), and some finishing touches on the house decorations to make. But I'll be ready come Sunday night, and relaxing on Christmas Eve...yep, I think I can!
Here are the last of the Christmas card designs I made this year. The first two use a couple Basic Grey Christmas paper collections from last season. They were a couple of my favorite collections, so I purchased them in full 12x12 size as well as a couple each of the 6x6 pads to match!
Patterned papers: Basic Grey Jovial collection Dies: Sizzix Flowers Branches and Leaves
Edge Punch: EK Success Diamond Lace Pebbles glitter dots Hug Snug seam binding
Miscellaneous: handcrafted pearl wire, chipboard star, silver German glass glitter
Patterned papers: Basic Grey Eskimo Kisses collection Dies: Spellbinders Layered Poinsettia

The next group of cards uses papers from this season's Prima and Carta Bella collections...first up, the shabby chic/girly card...
Patterned papers: Prima Tea Thyme collection Vintage Image: Graphic 45 Christmas Emporium collection

This next one doesn't truly qualify for the "clean and simple" label, but it's closer than some of the previous cards...LOL

Sentiment Chip: Spellbinders Lacy Doily Accents die
