Be Merry with the Stampin Up Festival of Trees stamp set!

Happy Sunday!

It is finally time for me to start thinking about making Christmas cards. I am not sure I am quite done with my Halloween cards yet, but I need to get those creative juices flowing about what my Christmas Cards will look like this year. I like to make a few different options and then whatever I like the most is the one I make the most of to send out to friends and family.  Here is my first candidate for my Christmas cards this year:

I really like the simplicity of this card and the quick amount of time it took to make it. Having stamps that coordinate with a punch always make things go so much quicker! I chose to make it muted colors with pops of metallic. I think it really makes it look modern. Tell me what you think!

I am entering this card at the Christmas Card Challenges Blog this week as their theme is Layer it up!

So have you started your Christmas Cards already?
