Christmas Cards

 Here are a selection of A5 Christmas cards I have made using some Katy Sue Design die-cut decoupage.
 Instead of using backing papers I have stamped plain white card with various stamps and inked around the edge for the green stamped paper with Tim Holtz's Peeled Paint distress ink and for the red stamped papers with Tim Holtz's Fired Brick distress ink.
 Due to the cost of postage the embellishments have been kept to a minimum and I have used additional accents of the decoupage sheets and some Katy Sue Designs envelope Christmas sentiments.
I am entering these cards into the following challenges:
