Joyeux Noel

     I think this is one of my favorite Christmas cards this season!  Talk about CAS and quick - I've done more than two dozen of them, all in various shades of red, green, and neutrals.


     The die cuts were done with dies from Die-versions. Although it's hard to see in the photo, the sentiment is glittered and sparkly.   All the die cuts were made from leftover scraps and snippets - a really good way to use up the scraps instead of just filling the trash can with them.  Sometimes you have to move and adjust them so that the die will fit but it's worth it. 

     I used Sakura Quickie Glue (in a pen) to adhere them to the card front.  Including the cutting, it took me less than 15 minutes to do the first one.  After that, I did all the cutting at once and then just set up the assembly line to get them all glued.  These are being donated to a Senior Center near me so that those folks will have cards to give to family and friends.

It's always hard to catch the glitter without bright spots on pics...I know from experience....haha. I love these type of scenes for Christmas. I'm very busy too. Have a safe, Merry Christmas and see you in January my friend.
