Last Minute Christmas Cards

I don't mean to scare anyone, but did you know that there are only 33 more days til Christmas? For the sake of all those procrastinators out there, like me, here are 3 cute and quick Christmas cards that you can make before anyone says "Holly Jolly Christmas".

Find some brown paper bag card stock or craft card stock to punch this awesomely handsome reindeer out of. The punch is from EK Success and the Christmas ribbon is from American Crafts.

Line the bottom inside of this card with red paper then punch these amazing snowflakes out of the front of the card. This is the scalloped snowflake punch from Martha Stewart's punch all over the page collection. I popped "wishing you joy" out on this one but you don't have to, you could just print it straight to the card.

A few rhinestones in the center of the snowflakes could really jazz this simple card up. I like the clean lines and that supremely cool snowflake border made with the Martha Stewart double-edge punch.

I printed all the sentiments for these cards out on our printer, but if your computer is uncooperative you can use stickers or stamps with the same effect.

I hope this helps; these cards should be great for those mass Christmas mailings.
