Simple Christmas Cards~AMYRS46

Amy over at Prarie Paper & Ink has a great sketch for her weekly shetch challenges. It's not really a hard sketch, actually very simple, but oh so pretty...I think anyway!!

I was far too lazy to pull out the embossing powder like Amy did and after I discovered I only had 2 sheets of Shimmery White cardstock left it made that decision much easier and way less mess:-)

I used SU Shimmery White cs, CTMH Inks in Indian Corn Blue, Twilight and Moonstruck for the blues and Tulip for the sentiment and inside saying. Then I used Tulip, Hollyhock and Blush for the pink/red ones, Juniper for the sentiment and the inside snowflakes.
Oh yes and some MAMBI rhinestones for some added bling. I couldn't really get a decent picture of the shimmer in the cs, but it is very pretty!!
Here is the blue one...

and the inside...very simple, but still pretty...

Here is the pink/red one...

and the inside....

Maybe if you click to enlarge it you can see the shimmer better, but I promise, it is very pretty IRL!!

These are the perfect type of card to mass produce...which is exactly what I'll be doing this year...speaking of that I really should get a move on it, just over 2 weeks until we go to Las Vegas for a week!!

Thank you so much for stopping by!

Have a fabulous day!
