Vintage Christmas Cards

Happy Saturday everyone!  
I wanted to pop in real quick today and share a couple of Christmas cards that I included in my last package to OWH!

While shopping at Joanns a couple of weeks ago I found a fabulous 12x12 Vintage Christmas sheet of paper from Creative Imaginations- the Woodland Quilt collection.  It has 16 3x3 squares and it's double-sided... perfect for making quick and easy cards!  
There are four different images and these two are my favorite... the Christmas tree
and the reindeer. Now, on this card I was trying to make a masculine Christmas card but it looked like it was missing something so I added gems to the Christmas trees and bow... I think it could still pass as a masculine Christmas card! :) 
I love how fast these cards came together and I'm so happy with the way they turned out!  Pre-colored images... a little Vintage Photo Distress Ink... you can't go wrong! :)

Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend!
Hugs, Tammy

These Christmas cards are equally perfect for a man as for a woman - I like that about a card. The color schemes and images are so beautifully traditional for Christmas - and I like that about Christmas cards:)
