To make it even simpler on myself, I often 'case' my Christmas Cards. This first one I cased from Jodi Collins. I used her layout and ornament ideas, but changed the paper, sentiment, and ornament dies. The 'December 25th' embellishment is a sticker from K & Company. The paper is DCWV 'The Christmas MatStack'. My second card uses a sketch by Silke Ledlow (FTTC147). It's the same paper as the one above.
This card I cased from Amy Scheffer. Again, I used the same layout, and just changed the image and papers. The stamp set is retired Stampin Up! 'The World Over', and the paper is Papertrey Ink 'Rustic Snowflakes'
