Cut Above - Deck the Halls

♫♫ Deck the halls with boughs of holly...
and pretty Christmas cards made by YOU!!  ♫♫

Christmas is coming, and people will soon begin sending and receiving Christmas cards.  Are you thinking of making your own cards this year?  Are you struggling for inspiration or time?  Or are you looking for a quick and simple card to create this year?  No matter what your situation, Close to My Heart's Cut Above card kits may be just what you are looking for!

In each kit, you receive all the card bases, envelopes, die-cuts, and embellishments necessary to make 10 5 ½" × 4 ¼" holiday cards.  Simply a few basic tools from your own stash (ink, adhesive, scissors, etc.) and one of the coordinating M-size stamp sets, and you are all set to start making your own Christmas cards.

Below is a picture of a card sample I made for a recent class using the Cut Above -- Deck the Halls kit.  I followed the suggested design for my card, but the ladies in the class took this basic design and ran.  They changed up the ornament placement, turned the card from portrait to landscape, wrapped the twine around the card, and used all sorts of other fun ideas to make the cards their own.

To see how easily these cards come together, please watch the below video tutorial on my YouTube channel.

Supplies used:
*Cut Above Deck the Halls card kit
*Black Exclusive Inks stamp pad
*Doubly Merry M-size stamp set
*Holiday Greetings M-size stamp set
