Love the challenge! It is never too early to start on Christmas cards. I used the Gift Card Pocket - Vertical Die-namics for my cards. I always need gift card holders at the holidays.

It's been crazy hot here in Boston, so it was fun to spend some time at my stamp table and think about Christmas! These a la modes stamps are just perfect for some watercoloring.

I'm always thinking about Christmas but I never seem to have quite enough cards made so this was a perfect challenge for me! I made a couple very CAS cards that will be easy peasy to mass produce. For details, please visit my blog.

I always love to make Christmas cards! I made two for this challenge, one a classic and vintage look, the other a more bright colorful card!

Christmas cards have always been my favorite kind of cards to make. I made two Christmas cards using some of my favorite Christmas Die-namcis.

I try and make Christmas cards all year long so this challenge was right up my alley. Now I have two more to add to my stash. I used Pure Innocence Little Santa and the Blueprints 1 Die-namics for one card, and the gorgeous Poinsettia Die-namics for my second card.

I'm showing you how to stretch your stamps and Die-namics in ways you might not have considered for a Christmas card!
