It's Christmas in August at CSAYL

Here are my Christmas cards for the past 2 Challenges at CSAYL; First, is my take on this week's sketch:

What a Great simple sketch for quick Christmas cards. The Stamp used here is by Stampin' Up!, from the set called "So Many Scallops". Snowflake silver dimensionals are from Martha Stewart. I cut them and layered them, then added star rhinestone to center. The snowflakes border was created with a punch by Fiskars.

Next, is LAST week's Christmas challenge to create a card featuring ***snowmen***:
I just love these new INKADINKADO Christmas stamps featuring text within the images. Sooooo cool!! The Glitter Paper is from a Premium Designer CS Stack by DCWV. The DP also by DCWV.

Hope you are inspired to get started on your Christmas cards. Thanks for looking & Happy Creating!!! America
