An Easy Peasy Christmas Card

Hi all,

Yes, I am still making some Christmas cards. Lol  These will be for next year, this year I didn't get to send very many out as I had planned. But I have my sights set for being on time next year. : )
Lately I have been trying to focus on Clean and Simple, as this is a challenge for me. This card is not Clean and Simple because of the busy design paper, but it was pretty easy peasy to put together. I chose a "Merry Christmas" word from my Cricut Library and cut the back in white cardstock and the "Merry Christmas" in red glitter paper, so there are two separate pieces, which are glued together. I used my scallop border punch for the bottom; then glued a piece of ribbon across in between the border and design paper. It turned out so cute.
I made a couple of cards with the same layout but just used different design papers, which are from Recollections.
***I made 3 of each one and I will probably do some more 
as it took no time at all. While the Cricut was cutting my sentiment, 
I was cutting my ribbon, paper and scalloped borders. 

Paper: Recollections - Christmas paper set
Accessories - ribbon in my stash; Cricut Explore - to cut out "Merry Christmas"; scalloped border punch.
