Design Shake-up

I have my monthly Fast & Fabulous Class tonight and the ladies are going to make 6 gorgeous Christmas cards. I do this class the last Wednesday of every month and it's always a big hit! I had a few Christmas card kits left over and ran out of Whisper White Card Stock... again (it's been a busy season!) so I decided to shake-up one of my previous designs. I also made it work with this week's Freshly Made Sketch. When you're as busy as I am, you have to multitask ;) Here is the original:

Based on this sketch

I came up with the card below. Not sure which one I like better, though I'm leaning to this new one :)

Tips & Tricks:

*I love SU!'s A la Carte stamps, such as the one above. I ink up my Something for Christmas stamp, stamp it down and voila - my card is almost done!
*You can't go wrong with punches, stamps, DSP and ribbon. Five minutes and this cute card was done!
*Want to stamp in bulk but not make the same card over and over? Try changing up the design just a bit on each card. Keeps your creativity going wile simplifying your card prep.

I hope you've enjoyed this card. Can't believe tomorrow is December and we'll *really* be in the Christmas season. I have one last Christmas card class next week so if you need more cards, don't forget to sign up :)

'Til next time, keep letting stamps bring out your creativity!
