Merry Kissmas

Still playing with my December Card Kit from Simon.  I LOVE the papers in this kit, such happy colorful prints!  They are Doodlebug Home for the Holidays 12" papers, cut down to 6" squares.  I have 2 cards for you today:

SSS Dec CardKit2

I could not resist this adorable reindeer pattern, and decided to let it be the star of the show by using a variation of  Heather's sketch from last week's Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge.  I added my own Doodlebug Ladybug Doodle twine, a button, and some hearts punched out of glitter paper.  The sentiment is from the Big Holiday Wishes stamp set in the kit.

I used this colorful snowflake paper that I really loved from the kit on this next card, along with Shari's Layered Tree die:

I used solid cardstocks from the kit (LOVE that limey green!) along with more red glitter paper for this one. I decided to leave the sentiment off of this one, and cut it into a tall skinny card, still 5 1/2" tall, but just 3" wide.  It might even work for a gift tag to attach to a gift, with room inside to write a note.

This kit is a real KEEPER!  Don't wait too long to order it, as I'm sure it will sell out like its sisters!

You are doing such wonders with this cool kit, Lin! Love these cards! I am partial to the second, as it has such a retro vibe with that paper and the lime green. Great combo! You are one of the blogging buddies for which I am most thankful! Have a wonderful Thanksgiving.
