How to Make a Simple Quick Christmas Card!

 Today's quick card took literally 10 minutes to make and that included figuring out the design.  I am sure you could make these even faster if you had an assembly line going.

First thing I did was cut the "Joy" from the Teresa Collins December 25 cartridge at 1-1/2" using white glitter paper.  This cartridge is gorgeous - check it out below:
I cut the ornament behind the "Joy"at 3-1/4" using the fabulous Close to My Heart Artiste cartridge - so many goodies on that cartridge!
I used the Martha Stewart Branch Punch to cut the green branch pieces - it finely cuts out the branch out perfectly. Here's what the punch looks like:

I am going to be focusing in on quick and easy Christmas cards over the next few weeks.  As time gets more and more crunched (can you believe it's only 2 weeks or so until Thanksgiving??), we need quick cards!
