Today’s card (sorry for the poor quality photo) is a non traditional card that includes no stamping. I used the Northern Flurries textured folder and then cut it into 1 inch strips and then made the strips into banners. I added a piece of ancient ribbon and a snowflake die to complete the 5 minute card. Christmas time is a great time to use up old product because of the large number of cards that most of us need to make at one time and just because the product is retired does not mean it can’t be used. I finished the look by adding varies sizes of pearls to the textured snowflakes.

It is the 25th of the month and as promised we post Christmas cards that we designed but also from some of our followers. This month Yvonne Crook, an avid SU fan and sistah friend of 3 sisters to stamp is our featured follower for today’s post. Yvonne was inspired by all the pennant posts that she decided to make a wreath and thread gingham ribbon through it and tied into a bow. Nice and simple design that could easily be created in mass to all those on your Christmas card list.
If you did not see Cammies beautiful Christmas cards from yesterdays post be sure to check it out. Cammie did a great job with today’s Christmas card challenge and also has a wreath as the focal elelment. The northern flurry embossing folder serves as a great background. Check out the fence posts made from the key tag punch. For my card, I decided to go the simple route use MDS to create a hybrid Christmas card. My Digital Studio, MDS is a great way to create cards in mass and sent them to SU printing service. When you get them back, just add a few embellishments and you have a wonderful card. Hope you enjoyed these Christmas cards and are inspired to start creating your own Christmas cards….. BTW, Christmas is just 90 days away! Tomorrow I will be announcing another challenge using a StampinUp stamp.
