Clean & Simple Christmas Cards (Artfull Crafts)

Good morning!  Can you believe we're into Christmas crafts over at Artfull Crafts already!  Today I'm on the blog with three simple cards that I made with some new product that Liz is carrying in the store.  Simple cards are definitely my style, as card making is second to scrapbooking.

The first two cards are made with the Simple Stories DIY Christmas Collection. This collection is perfect for my style of cards, as its all about starting with a foundation and then adding layers embellishments.  You can find the collection in the shop here.

This card was made by layering some patterned paper, a card foundation on pop dots, and then a chipboard tag tied with tinsel.

I made this card in record time.  I love the background paper as it's appropriate for a Summer Christmas.  I added the banner piece, then the chipboard button.

My final card is made with the Teresa Collins Candy Cane collection, which you can find in the shop here.  This collection has a gorgeous piece of paper with cute hand-drawn trees which I had to fussy cut out and use.  I layered them over a piece of paper, and added the glitter ribbon to ground them, and a red star on the middle tree.  This card is definitely my favourite of the three!

Thanks for looking, and make sure you check the Artfull Crafts blog each day for more Christmas crafts and projects.
