I think I have finally decided on my Christmas card designs

I know these cards look simple but I have to say that it took me forever to come up with the designs. I normally give my family and friends handmade Xmas cards but last year I just got lazy and didn't make any cards and let me just say no one was impressed. I think that these will be the main designs I use for my cards this year. They are  relatively quick and inexpensive to make. The design on the trees is self adhesive Christmas border felt, I love the texture and dimension it adds to the card. I still have alot left and so can use it on some more cards. With the rest of the cards that I make with this design I am planning to use Japanese paper, sari material and other things like that that I haven't used in a while. Planning to make about 60 Holiday cards, lets hope it happens, I can only try.

The challenges I have included-
Sketch-Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge.
Moxie Fab World-Holiday Cards.
City Crafter Challenge Blog-Holiday Cards.

Hope all of you are having a nice weekend. After a tough week I am having a relaxing weekend and I think tomorrow I am atlast going to see "Eat Pray Love". So looking forward to watching it, I am sure it will be good.

I love the designs... simple but very elegant. The embossing (or is it something else) on the trees is very nice!
