Oh Christmas Tree, O Christmas tree

I had the chance to play for a little and wanted to create some quick and simple Christmas cards. My neighbor is a Girl Scout leader and we talked about her girls possibly making cards for the soldiers this year, so I wanted to possibly get a couple of samples ready. Just in case.
All of these are similar, but different. Or as we say around my “Xactly the same, but different.”

I used SU’s Tree Trimming and Christmas Greetings sets on all of these and various shades of reds and greens. . I also used silver ep for my string on some of these.
All were quick and easy and I know the young girls could easily make these if my neighbor decides to do this as a project.

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you have a wonderful and blessed day!



Stamps: SU Tree Trimming and Christmas Greeting

CS and DP: White CS

Inks, markers and coloring tools: various greens and reds
