It has literally been like Christmas today!

It has been a while since I have put in a large stamping order. My sisters and I are wanting to sell cards at a craft fair booth and I have had some requests to do a Stamp-a-Stack of Christmas cards. So I decided that it was time to get some new Christmas stamp sets. Sure - some of them are not "new" but they are new to me. Anyway - I mounted 9 stamp sets this afternoon (thank goodness that 4 of them were the die-cut sets from the holiday mini) and then I started making some cards. Christmas cards to be exact.

I won't post my supplies that I used - I'm not sure that people are paying attention to that anyway. If you want supplies, you can post a comment asking for them.

These are my favorite two that I have made so far.

The City if David card is one that Stampin' Up! did last year and I loved. I had been dying to get the set so that I could make the card. :) The snowflake card is one that I just had to do with the a couple of our In Colors - Blue Bayou and Soft Sky. Last year I refused to buy the In Colors. Now I finally caved and bought 4 of them for this year. How long do you think I will go until I break and get the last 2?

These two both seem like they are missing something. I know what exactly I need for the Santa card - it needs just a bit of bouble-stitched Wild Wasabi ribbon in the empty blue space between the Christmas trees and the "Tis the season" sentiment. I'm still kind of struggling with what to add to the Noel card.

Overall I need to keep these relatively simple so that people can make a lot of them at a class. Any suggestions?
