This is a card I made with the paper and stickers from the December card kit (which is apparently not sold out yet as I write this on 12/23):
Under the cut are some cards I did not make - these are some cards from Simon Says Stamp's website, and I'm putting them here because I imagine they will disappear from the website at some point in the future and I want to be sure I can find them again when I'm ready to make cards for next year. (I only got around to making a couple of cards from the kit, so I've got lots of stuff left.)
(Another adorable idea done with a stamp set I have is this geometric thing, done by one of the ladies below. That one would work all year round, I think.)
Heather Ruwe for SSS. (Added: I poked around her website til I found the exact entry that has this card - here. There's a different angle and some notes about the making of it.)
(And a different take on the stockings here.)
Also not made by me:
this Virginia. (When you try to google that you get many many variations on "Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus"!) Apparently this same lady also runs this challenge blog. (and here's the deer card plus a tree card that I also really liked)
Added: here's another adorable sticker card. I used "peace & joy" already (see above) but I'm pretty sure I didn't use the tree.
And a third one, also NOT made by me:
the same lady as the one above. (Here's the link for that one.)
Yet another idea with the papers from the kit.
And I just want to emphasize again, that except for the one at the top I did not make any of these and I am definitely not trying to claim credit! They're only here because I like them and I have the supplies so I want to be able to do something along these lines later on.
