The cute robins are from a stamp set from Clearly Besotted, they come with matching dies which always makes things easier for those who do not enjoy fussy cutting. I have added a list of products used at the end of this post.
The two smaller cards are just 4″ square. One is on a Kraft card base, the other is white patterned cardstock which I reinforced inside to make it a little more robust.
The pretty background paper is from Stampin’ UP! I coloured the robins with Polychromo colouring pencils (I am not the best at colouring). The tiny Santa hat comes with the stamp set as does the tree stump. I handcut the frame from a piece of gessoed canvas and the leaves are cut from a Memory Box Christmas tree die. A few silver micro beads to represent the ground and a small greeting from Penny Black’s Snippets Stamp Set finish this card.
The Branch Die from Memory Box was cut from glitter paper with leaves from the Memory Box Christmas Tree die. Again I handcut a tiny frame from canvas and placed my robin in front of it. A few sequins, a tiny greeting, and voila!
This card is 3 3/4′ x 7 3/4″ I cut two Memory Box dies from the Elyse Christmas Tree, one from silver cardstock and one in white. I glued them together slightly off centre of each other so that a glimpse of the silver can be seen behind the white. Another handcut canvas frame and a tiny sentiment from Penny Black completes this card.

How are you going with your Christmas cards this year? Do you send cards at all? If it wasn’t for running my card making classes I would probably not have started mine yet. I tend not to make multiples of the same card, but make individual cards as the mood or inspiration strikes. I do enjoy making Christmas cards but find myself steering clear more and more of the snowy scenes. Being mid summer in Australia when Christmas comes, it seems a little pointless, although I do really love the look of them. I do send cards overseas to family, so I can indulge in the winter scenes with those.
I wish you all a lovely weekend whatever you are doing. Have fun.
Happy Crafting All.
