Ahhhh - can you feel it? It's always such a magical time of year right now - the weeks leading up to Christmas are indeed magical! And what better way to celebrate this festive time of year than with a  few handmade cards featuring the  "Christmas Magic" collection!

I used another bunch of card bases from the Create-a-Card sets. They really do take all the guesswork out of creating card bases, plus I love all the different designs of each card base. Here are some close-ups of each of the cards:

This card is so fun with all of the gingerbread and candy designs. I love adding shape sprinkles like the gumdrops and swirl candies to the  Odds and Ends to add dimension. And how fun are the tiny white hear sprinkles on the scallop edge of the card. It reminds me of icing!
 I love the long pine bough die-cut found in the Odds and Ends. I trimmed this one in half so it stretched across the whole card base and then covered the cut with one of the Chit Chat die-cuts. It's fun to repurpose the die-cuts to make them work for your design.
 The ornaments are so darling in the collection! As you can see I added a bit of Ladybug Bakers Twine to the tops of the ornament die-cuts. Simply punch a small hole in the top, and lace the twine through! Another fun way to add a little personal touch to the premade die-cut.
 These tall skinny card bases are some of my favorites! It was perfect for the tall Christmas tree die-cut. Simply add a few sprinkles and you've got some shiny ornaments on that tree! The little Doodlepop Elves are so cute with their little presents under the tree!
 I love the size of all the Santas that are found in the Odds and Ends. This one, in particular, has my heart - YeeHaw Santa! The file folder shape of this card is fun to turn on its side to have the flap on the right instead of on the top. Try that next time you use one of these cards!
 And I saved my favorite die cut from the  Odds and Ends for last.  How CUTE is this little gang of elves packing  Santa's sleigh up with all the gifts! All of their cute faces and jingle bell hats were the perfect touches to this large card base. I added a few Sprinkle Shapes, stickers and a ticket from the Chit Chat to decorate this card. Isn't the yellow in this collection a bright addition to the typical Christmas color pallet?
That's all I have for you today! It was just the most fun making all of these cards with the wonderful "Christmas Magic" collection. I hope I have inspired you to grab all of the bits and pieces of this collection and make a batch of cards for your loved ones this holiday season!  Make sure you share them with us so we can see your creations! Happy Holidays and  Happy Crafting!
