Christmas Cards and a Tag

Happy Tuesday everyone!! I've been hard at work starting on my Christmas cards. I told myself I was not going to wait until the last minute this year and I'm actually sticking to that! So for each one of these you see I've actually made 8 each :) 

I just LOVE how this first card turned out. I have been using my Peachy Keen stamps like crazy and they really do add such character to the cricut cuts. This cute little guy was from Winter Frolic. The background image he is on is from Lucy Labels. 

This second guy is my FAVORITE!! The deer is from Doodlecharms and the present is from Sweet Treats. The Card base is cut from Tags Bags Boxes and More. Again.. peachy keen faces :) 

This chick is from 3 birds on parade. I changed the strand of Christmas Lights to a banner. And of course I had to add Twine on the ends and use my Peachy Keens AGAIN! :) The card shape was cut from Life's a Party. 

**NEW TIP ALERT** Did you know you can shape your clear stamps to stamp on a curve? The sentiment for his banner was long and straight so I just slightly curved it on my clear block to the same shape as the banner and it worked quite nicely! :) 

And lastly, these are my Christmas tags that I will be using this year. The red paper is glitter paper from Joanns. The tag was cut from Tags Bags Boxes and more and then the buckle was cut from Art Philosophy cartridge. Then added twine and tulle for the top to finish it. Very easy!! :) 

Thanks for checking out my blog today!
