Here Comes Santa Claus: Three Cards by Courtney

It's Beginning to Look a lot Like Christmas

My mom calls and sings that song after she has found a Christmas present and wont tell me what it is! Courtney here from Court's Crafts with three Christmas cards to jump start your creativity. 

Te first one was totally inspired by those little birds. I LOVE THEM!!! 

This heart background paper is my new fave and I just had to get it in as the background of the card. The heart Cute Clips were JUST the thing needed. There is even one hiding in the wired ribbon!  I grabbed my daughter's tinsel pipe cleaners (shhh.. don't tell!) and snipped a bit off to ground my birds - like birds on a wire. :) 

This is one of those cards that comes together organically and quickly. I took out the snow globe (Odds and Ends) and I cut the sentiment out from the 6x6 paper pad. And then they sat on my desk together...for like a week. haha. Then I saw this advent calendar paper and wanted to make something different (I was going to make a door hanger countdown thingy) but then I thought... quilted background!!!

Or maybe I should call this a faux quilted background as I just stitched in between the squares making it look like that! I added a border strip from This and That, a scrumptious candy cane sprinkle and a paper clip to the snowglobe and attached them all to a tag. Sweet! 

Dear Santa
For this card I really wanted to decorate a Christmas tree.. somehow that turned into this. lol. The creative process sometimes cracks me up and I was totally cracking up at myself as I put this together. 

Those candy swirl sprinkles though!!! And did you see Santa's candy cane exhaust? haha. Most of these were die cuts from the Odd's and Ends. :) 

I hope this inspires you to break out your Here Comes Santa papers early and have some holiday fun! I LOVE Christmas!!!
