One of my go-to quick Christmas card techniques is using the big, pretty gift tags that Target has every year -- I pick up a bunch at the 12/26 clearance sale and use them for a quick way to mass produce cards. I have also been trying to make them month by month.
The Free for all challenge to use no stamps reminded me that I hadn't made all my holiday cards for May because I thought of my gift tags to use for this challenge. The warm wishes tag came premade with glitter and everything and there were 6 so it was easy to knock out 6 cards using these. I just cut pieces of white cardstock a little smaller than the pre-made kraft cards I had, then ran them through the Big shot with a diamond pattern embossing folder and attached to card fronts, then attached the tag with foam tape and added the brad to fill up the hole where I had removed the string from the tag. And done!
With the metallic glitter, metallic paper and the shiny silver brad, I decided that this works for the Way to Use It challenge from 5/18 for hardware and metal accents too!

I agree with Sabrina! This is such an eye catching card! Congratulations on making Christmas cards all year long! I usually make them in the summer but haven't done any yet. :-( Ha, ha! This is inspiring me to get cracking.
