krafty Christmas cards

I have about half of my Christmas cards made. I decided to go very, very simple this year. . .

The cardstock is cardboard I rescued from the trash at work. I have a thing for saving kraft-colored stuff, and some of the cardboard has a really beautiful texture to it. I embossed the bottom using my Cuttlebug. The "Merry Christmas" paper, corrugated green cardstock, and twine are all from my stash so my cards were pretty much free. I'll add a computer-generated sentiment inside, print off my address labels and cross cards off my to-do list. Thanks for looking!


  1. These are gorgeous!!! Love those swirls at the bottom! You did a great job. :)

  2. good looking cards, I think I have the same embossing plate, but I never thought about using this way! I like the simplicity and elegance of the card, perfect when it needs to be mass produced!
    thanks for visiting.

  3. SO pretty! I wimped out this year and bought photo cards. :P
