The focus this week is on favourite bundles from the holiday catalogue so I chose 2. How can you narrow it down to just 1? I have used the Merriest Wishes and Holly Berry Happiness bundles for these 2 cards.
I have taken my inspiration from the tag on page 21 of the holiday catalogue. The tag on the present was the starting point for my cards.
I die cut 3 tags - 1 each in Very Vanilla, Garden Green and Crumb cake - and then cut the trees and reindeer out and adhered to the Very Vanilla base.
Making the cards was really quick. I adhered the pieces of This Christmas DSP to the Very Vanilla card base. The second card is just the reverse side of the first card. Because this DSP is a bit thinner than some others it was easy to die cut the circle in one go. Yay for easy things!
This second card simply has a solid Garden Green bauble behind the Very Vanilla tree bauble.
Thick baker's twine adhered with glue dots made a quick hanger with some holly for decoration.
I think that these cards look a bit fancier than the time it took me to make them. They were very quick to make and it fits my motto - minimum effort for maximum effect. We are all busy and I love it when I can make a card that looks great but in reality is very quick and simple.
