Cozy Lodge Christmas Cards

It has been a cold, windy couple of days here in the Midwest so I decided to stay inside and play with some fun and festive Christmas paper. These little cards were created using the Mojo Monday sketch challenge from this week, but they also go right along with the current Cards in Envy theme challenge, “Put Some Extra Layers On.” I think I counted at least seven layers on one of the cards, and that’s not including the twine and staple. I used Recollections Cozy Lodge 12×12 paper pad for both cards, plus a scrap piece of wood paper I had hanging out around the house. Of course, I inked my edges and added some brads, twine Stickles and such for the finishing touches. I’m kind of in an Adirondack kind of mood these days, so this paper was the perfect choice for these cozy Christmas cards.

      I’m so glad you like all the layers. It seems like the more the merrier when it comes to winter cards. . . I don’t know, but the layers just make me feel warmer. 🙂
