3 Quick and Easy Christmas Cards

These cards were super quick and easy to do ~ not to mention they are nice and flat for easy mailing too!
I used the same layout for these, same punches, same set of stamps and same stack of DP, just different patterns.

These cards are for the following challenges:

Stamp TV - Create your own shimmering background paper (the first two cards)
ABC Challenge - Embossing (first card)
Simon Says Stamp - Red and Green
Creative Inspirations - Christmas in October
Secret Crafter - Celebration
Creative Card Crew - Celebration

Card Recipe~ all items SU unless indicated
Stamps: Stamps from Walmart
Ink/Coloring: Memento Tuxedo Black; Bic Mark Its; Signo White Gel Pen
Paper: Real Red, (and one has Glorious Green as well); Gina K Pure Luxury White; DP - DCWV (Christmas Stack)
Embellishments: Stickles (Stardust)

Tools: Marvy Mega and Giga Scalloped Oval Punches; Scallop Border Punch (on one card); Cuttlebug Embossing Folder (Snowflakes - on one card)

I took Trevor in to the Doctor today because yesterday he came home with bumps on his face and upper torso and I immediately thought Chicken pox. Turns out, he does have them, but a very mild case as he has already had both vaccines. He is luckily not contagious as they are not blistering, so he can go back to school tomorrow (although I must admit is was nice having my little buddy home for the day).
