Quick and Easy Trendy Christmas Cards by Gloria Stengel

Hello everyone!
Gloria here again!
Today I am sharing a few "trendy" Christmas cards with you. I am on a kick to create cards that are: quick to create, use only basic supplies, and are easy to mail. (Both cards for today are standard size - 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 or A2.) I am not sure I would call myself a "trendy girl" but I thought that these two cards had that "vibe."

For this card, I made a  black card base. I then embossed a piece of dark red Core'dinations cardstock with the Jolly Christmas folder. I used the Sanding Block to sand the raised areas. The pale paper core shows through. I chose a trendy hexagon print paper to add some extra interest to the card, and I created an icicle border with a punch.

I added a very trendy chalkboard sentiment to the front of the card and finished it all off with a little "bell and bow" action.  Clean and simple cards are all the rage these days. I confess that this is a style that I am not very good at, but I think this next card is my own version of CAS.

I embossed some textured glossy paper with the Peaceful Ornaments folder. I trimmed off the bottom portion of the embossed image and added Self-Adhesive Gemstones to each of the embossed ornaments.

I added a sentiment, which is one of my very own stamp designs I cut out the sentiment with the Victorian Rectangle Nesting Dies. I rubbed the edges of the rectangle with green ink.

I hope you are inspired to create some quick and easy and trendy Christmas cards! Thanks for joining me today!
