CottageCutz Christmas Cards

Hello everyone, it's Carol here today.   Christmas is in full swing here and today's post is just in time to share some of those last minute Christmas cards to send to family and friends.  CottageCutz dies are not only adorable, but the make quick work of a Holiday card and lend lots of details to the focal points.  This card features the Nutcracker die.
 These cards are created on Christmas cards from the $1.50 bin at Michael's for the base.  For this card the Potted Poinsettia for the focal point and Poinsettia and Ivy die from CottageCutz.
 So you can see the different looks you can get with these beautiful dies.  For this card Santa on Chimney is used.  These cards use all the same basic colors of black, white, and designer paper from Authentique "Believe" pad.
 Reindeer Pulling Sleigh from CottageCutz is the main focal point for this card.  A switch up of the flower and sentiment gives another look to this same basic design. 
Now that you have seen how many cards worked up, you know that once you have your basic design planned out, they go pretty quickly.  Perfect for last minute cards you need to get out.  This one used the Santa's Naughty/Nice List.
Almost all of these CottageCutz images were cut on glittered paper.  Another easy peasy hint for finishing up a few extra cards to send to those you didn't know were going to send to you this year.  For this card the Christmas Stocking was used.  Thank you for stopping by today.  Hope this gives you some ideas for whipping up some cards to finish your mailing list.  Until next time, Happy Crafting.  Here are the dies used:

These are all beautiful. Did you use the same Poinsettia die for all of the flowers? You get such great dimension with these dies that make flat cuts! I'm really fond of the nutcracker - my favorite.
