FTL171 A set of quick Christmas cards

Hi everyone!  I have a quick post for today.  Isn't this time of year CRAZY BUSY?!?  Anyhoo, I am dreadfully behind with my Christmas cards.  So I took the Fall To Layout sketch 171 and made several flat, easy to mail cards.  

I will admit that I send out the more elaborate and embellished cards to my close friends and family, but there are always that list of about 10 people who you send cards to and get the flatter ones?  Kwim?  Distant relatives?  Anyway, these cards will be for them.

To make things go faster, all the cards use the same pattern paper pad from My Mind's Eye, the 12 Days of Christmas.  1/2 of the cards use the JustRite Stamp set, O Christmas Tree (which is on sale for $11.21).  This set coordinates with Spellbinders Nested Pennants die sets!  I added ribbons to most of them, except the 2 masculine cards, where I used strips of brown cardstock instead (I think my Uncles will appreciate the lack of ribbon, lol).  So here is a pic of the 6 cards I made last night.
Here is a close up of the 2 masculine cards I made.  The little snowflakes on the top panel is also a stamp from the O Christmas Tree set, I added a drop of Stickles to the center.
Hey, see the glittery reindeer?  It was made with something new and fun!  Zoom Creative Glitterfast sheets.  Yep, this is a new product that has a MESS FREE glitter sheets.  They are really cool and easy to work with.  What you do is stick the glitter sheet to the adhesive shapes, rub it on and peel it off.  I got these shapes from the Greeting Card kit. You can also get plain sheets and die cut them in any shape you want!  Sa-weet!

Here are the other cards from the set.
This last one on the left used all the paper scraps from making the other cards.  Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!
Most supplies used on these can be found at the Stamp Simply Ribbon Store.
