Quick and Easy Holiday Cards

Hi everyone!

It's Suzanne here today to share some holiday cards that I think are fairly easy to mass produce. September is nearly here, and that's when I start planning how I am going to crank out dozens of handmade cards for friends and family.

On the card above, I used the moon from Halloween Scene and turned it into a funky profile of Santa, and paired it with the partially stamped sentiment from Sweet Home. I colored the hat with a red Tombow marker, and used Copics to color the face, including the blushing cheek. Then I added the pearl to look like the pom-pom on the floppy end of the hat.

Next, I stamped peppermint strip from Sweet Home over and over again, inking up one less mint each time and centering the mints as I went up, so that the final pattern formed a tree. The trunk was stamped using the bottom of the large candy cane image from the same set. I then colored the image with red and brown Tombow markers, as well as a white Signo gel pen. I stamped onto pebble cardstock from A Muse Studio so that the white gel pen would really pop off the card.

My last card was made using some Sizzix alphabet letters to diecut the word "PEACE," but I replaced the letter "A" with the tree image from Sweet Home, which was stamped in a shade of green maching the cardstock. I then flipped the tree stamp over on my block and inked up the flat side in a lighter shade of green, and stamped that over the outline image so that it would appear to be colored in. Then I added the red bling and scalloped edge before mounting the white panel onto the green card base.

Super easy and fun! Thanks for stopping by and have an awesome day!
