Christmas cards...

I promised I would share some of my Christmas cards...when I have a lot to mae I tend to keep cards as easy as possibly. Now keep in mind ribbon can be costly to send in the mail too so I tend to keep the cards with lots of embelishments for hand delivery. What I like about these cards is that the cards stand alone without the ribbon (because of the embossed box outline) but can also be dressed up using the ribbon. You can see I was playful with the ribbon and it's placement too. Also, you can change the look of each card because you can stamp the bells on different patterned paper. You'll note too that the hearts have sparkles.
