Crooked Christmas

I mentioned before that I decided to do handmade Christmas cards this year. Because of the amount I needed to make and because I didn’t want to have to take these to the post office to measure & weigh each card, I decided to keep my Christmas cards really simple. I really love the way these simple cards turned out.  cc4
The reason I titled this post, crooked Christmas is I had so many issues getting this stamp to stamp straight. I re did it 2 or 3 times and it was crooked each time. I love this sentiment and decided to use it even if it kept turning out cooked. LOL
I'm playing along with Stamp Something's Christmas color challenge. 
 Thanks for stopping by!
Here’s my Recipe:
Paper: Imaginese
Stamp: Whiff of Joy, Sentiment: Amuse
embellishments: Kaiser pearls
tools: stitching, doohickey die, copics

Thanks for the ideas--I need to make a lot of cards to mail this year as well and need to keep it simple!!! I think I'm going to do a mass production thing though!
