This Christmas card uses the Carols of Christmas stamp set and coordinating Card Front Builder Thinlits for the ornaments and sentiment with pine boughs from the Christmas Happiness stamp set - all from Stampin Up.  I have used their Cherry Cobbler, Garden Green, Pacific Point and Crushed Curry inks.  Added a strip of Washi tape for a bit more color and some rhinestone bling.  A7 card size.
I used Stampin Up's Carols of Christmas stamp set and Card Front Builder Thinlits to create this card. The card was inspired by and CASEd based on one designed by Christy Fulk. The tiny dies are challenging. But what I usually do when working with these smaller sizes is just make a bunch at once and then use them as needed.  I have used their Real Red and Old Olive inks for this A7 size card. And of course had to add some rhinestones to the poinsettias and some clear Wink of Stella to the trees.

Another two cards created with Stampin Up's Carols of Christmas stamp set and coordinating Cards Front Builder Thinlits. 

 This first one could be made with a mat of any designer paper and coordinating inks and cardstock.  The sentiment was stamped with their Cherry Cobbler ink. A2 size card.

This second one has several layers of white glitter paper cut to resemble snow banks on the bottom with the dies cuts from the set tucked in between. The sentiment is from their October Paper Pumpkin kit and was stamped with Pacific Point ink. This card was inspired by one I saw on Pinterest made by Stamp & Scrap with Frenchie. It is an A2 size card.

This series of holiday cards were created with Stampin Up's Carols of Christmas stamps and the coordinating Card Front Builder Thinlits and stamped and sponged with their Whisper White ink.  It is a really versatile set and I especially like  the trees and deer dies and know they will be used a lot. These are all A2 size cards.
This card was CASEd from one I saw on a You Tube video by Jennifer Gromada.  The wreath is created using stamps from Stampin Up's Holly Berry Happiness stamp set and  the coordinating Holly Berry Builder punch.  I used both of the holly leaves stamps in the set which I stamped with Tranquil Tide Ink.  The berries, bow and sentiment were stamped in Cherry Cobbler ink.  The sentiment is from Hero Arts set #CL722.  A2 size card.
This is certainly the quickest and easiest Christmas card I have made.  And the nice thing is that is could be recreated using any coordinating color card stock and designer series paper.  The sentiment is from October 2017 Paper Pumpkin.  The snowflake was cut from gold foil paper on my Cricut Explore Air 2 using an image from Design Space.  A2 size card.
Another Christmas card colored with my Stampin Up markers.  Then I added snowflakes cut using Tim Holtz Sizzix Paper Snowflakes dies #661599.  And a sentiment from Hero Arts Christmas Message dies #CL722. A7 card size.
