A Doodlebug Santa Express Christmas Card Set

I don't know about you, but it's starting to feel like Christmas around here which means it's a great time to get caught up on creating all your Christmas cards!  Today I'm sharing a few over on Doodlebug's blog that I've created using their new Santa Express collection.

Up first I have a card using the darling gingerbread image from the collection.  I cut my sentiment from the "very merry" paper.  This sheet has so many darling images and sentiments that are perfect for cards!  For my snow I cut a strip of lily white dot sugar coated cardstock and then punch one edge with a scalloped border punch. To finish it off, no project ever feels quite complete without a little bling so  I embellished the stickers with pearls and jewels.  

My next card would be perfect for mass producing.  It was quick and easy to make and best of all it's a great design for using up little bits of leftover paper.  I think you could easily create multiples by just substituting the gingerbread with other darling characters from the collection (like Mr. & Mrs. Claus, Snowmen, reindeer, etc.).

My train card is also great at utilizing leftover paper scraps. I think this design would go especially quick with the use of a small square punch (which is now on my wish list). 

My last card uses the Christmas tree gift tag as a focal point.  I punched my sentiment from that same "very merry" paper and then embellished my tree with various sprinkles.  I adore the Christmas Tags Craft Kit in this collection--They really have some many fun uses!
