Do you have a lot...

...of Christmas cards to make?

I do.

Every year I promise that I will be more organised and get a few done every month - every year December arrives and I realise I have loads that I still need to make.

Hunkydory have brought out a lovely stack of Christmas images called "The Little Book of Christmas". There are 144 pages , 48 designs which can be used as toppers or you can cut them up and use them as decoupage. The great thing is, you can use these images and make your cards as simple or as fussy as you like - perfect for making some quick last minute cards.

Here are a couple that I made...
 ...both use a 6x6 card blank and a deckle-edged black CS matt...
...and some red gingham ribbon.

These have been kept fairly simple so they will be ideal for posting - not too bulky so should keep the postage costs down.

The stack has a good variety of images so you will be able to cover all eventualities - cute, traditional, religious, contemporary. There is also a good mix of colours so you can go with your traditional Red/Green combo or try out blues, pinks and beiges.

The size is great for a variety of card sizes. I trimmed these down a little to fit on the matt on a 6x6 card but you could easily matt & layer the images for use on larger card blanks.

I will continue to colour a selection of images to make up into cards but it is nice to know that I have these to add into the equation.........................................................................

What fabulous cards - I don't find making cards easy so admire your skill. I used to make cards for family at Christmas but don't even seem to get the time for that so can fully appreciate the panic if you are making them all! x
