All of my Christmas cards

Hello people!

As I am not getting much time to update my blog, I thought of showing all the Christmas cards that I made this year in a single post (Except the ones I posted in previous posts). Here are these:

1st one is a long card...

The Christmas tree stamp is from Kaisercraft. I found this set in Itsy Bitsy store and I was so thrilled once it caught my eyes..

2nd one is again a long card... The sentiment "Merry Christmas" is from the same stamp set.

3rd card is a quick pink and purple card that I made in 20 mins... Love the die cut and the embossed paper that Kalindi sent me. I made a matching envelope too.

4th one is stepper card I made for a friend of mine. The papers are from Echo park's Season's greetings collection.

Side view of the stepper card. Sorry for the bad quality of photos as I clicked the photos just before leaving for office at 7 in the morning and it was still dark outside. So couldn't take a picture in the broad day light.

And its coordinating envelope.
The sentiment and the ornament are again from Kaisercraft stamp set.

I made some Christmas notecards too but haven't clicked their pictures.

I hope you guys liked these. Do leave some comments. Each and every comment is so dear to me.

Good night!
