Three CAS Christmas Cards

Here are three Clean & Simple Christmas cards I'm sure anyone can recreate. My biggest piece of advice for new stampers is to let designer paper do the work for you. Collections are perfect for taking the guess work out of mixing and matching patterns. It's almost like being on a wire while climbing a rock wall. All the colors match and just about anything you mix will look good if not GREAT!
These all use the cutest little sentiment set for Christmas I've ever seen. It's from Papertrey Ink and was only $15. I'll be getting a lot of used from these since I love the hand written look. Just maybe some of the people I send these cards to will think it's my handwriting!

Star Card - Basic Grey designer papers, ribbon, SU chipboard star, jumbo eyelet
Glitter ornament - SU ornament punch, Sizzix ornament die, American Crafts Glitter Pallets paper, Basic Grey DP.
Red Ornaments - SU DP, Vanilla paper and ribbon

These are all fantastic! And your right they are simple enough that I'll probably be able to CASE them. Beautiful paper and stamping.
