Cuttlebug Christmas

Hi Everyone,
I am going with simple and neutral tones for my Christmas cards this you all have seen through my previous blog posts I love using my Cuttlebug.  These are the first Christmas folders I decided to purchase from Oh My Crafts!  they have some great bargain prices so I decided to cave in and get some of these Sizzix folders used with some of my already Cuttlebug folders.
the torn edge background is a predesigned Anna Griffith paper.
this one is just layering with gold paper being the layer separting the beige

the torn musical background is a stamp I covered with gold embossing powder

The Merry Christmas is what I used on the previous cards I decided to handcut the words.
These were quick and easy..compared to when I am determined to hand make my own flowers and intricate details...This year is seeming less stressful on making these in bulk for family and friends.  Guess I'll leave the really intricate ones like the previous  Poinsetta Flower cards for extra special receivers. This was a good learning second Christmas year to officially say I'm an card artist in the making. I hope you all enjoyed..until next time this Frugal Grannie is out.

Hopefully I will not have such long breaks between posts..been having a little more physical issues and craftroom rearranging...but Praise the Lord...I'm breathing..moving and getting back on track of creating with paper and altered fun things...I have so many ideas and not enough time and can't wait to share.
