December Creative kit - Christmas cards

Hello friends and Merry Christmas! I'm here with you today to bring you more Christmas cards. This set is so simple and easy due to the papers and embellishments of the creative kit being coordinated beautifully.

To start off, all of my cards measure 5" x 6.5". I bought a pack of card bases with envelopes from Michaels so that I would have white cardstock on the inside to write a message to the recipient. It also helps to use less of my highly coveted scrapbook paper. ;)
