Today we have LOTS of Christmas cards for you. I love seeing all the photo cards that arrive in the mail from family and friends. But I have to admit, there is something really cool about receiving a handmade card. When you receive a handmade card, you know that the person giving it to you put time and care into piecing it together and making it special. Maybe you can't create cards for everyone on your list, but I bet your family and closest friends would love to get a card just like one of these this Christmas season!
"The Most Famous Reindeer Of All" card, by Alice Carman.
Here’s a fun card using Bella Blvd’s Christmas Wishes collection. Making Christmas cards is so fun with all the great colors in the Christmas Wishes collection. It’s hard not to make something cute. This line is so sweet and adorable and I had so much fun using it and making my greetings this year.

"Joy" card, by Alice Carman.
Christmas is coming and what better way to celebrate than to make some fun holiday greetings. I love layers on my cards and this card sure has them. Using Bella Blvd’s Christmas Wishes collection I cut out some shapes for my background. Layered more shapes using the journaling stickers and finished it off with Christmas Wishes stickers and Ciao Chips.

"Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas" card, by Deanna Misner.
This card has so much depth and is so front-heavy that I actually had a hard time getting it to stand up! LOL! For this one I wanted to play with layering, so I piled on the elements--an accordion flower thingy, a chipboard tree, and then a wavy banner with the sentiment to top it off. I also accented the tree's details with a little sparkle because I love cards that have a little shimmer to them.

"Merry Christmas" card, by Deanna Misner.
I played with one of my punches and the idea of repetition, which ended up creating a quilt-like effect that I really like. Since the background was a little busy, I kept the rest simple by adding the blooms, a die-cut, and a quick sentiment.

"He's Making A List" card, by Gretchen McElveen.
I just love Bella Blvd's Cute Cuts patterned papers! I have yet to meet a sheet that I do not love! So I used the Cute Cuts sheet from Christmas Wishes to knock out 2 more Christmas cards!
