Christmas in July - Quick Cards with Collage Images.

It's time for Christmas well not really, but July is a month when a lot of us start thinking about it!  Are you one of those people who get an early start on your Christmas Creating?  I always have every good intention but then others things distract me so I end up in a rush trying to get cards made to get into the post in time.......so today I thought I'd share a couple of quick card creations with you.



You don't need lots of supplies or time to throw these together.  I started with some coordinating papers from the Glitz Joyeux Noel Collection, and some Bazzill Edge Strips in Red, and some red and green card bases.  Then I browsed through the various vintage Christmas Collage Images you will find at Altered Pages and picked a couple from the sheet called Happy Holidays.  Both of my chosen images for my cards today featured Santa.



You simply cut various strips of two coordinating papers to layer and combine to cover the cards bases laying them in various ways and sticking them onto the base before mounting the collage images on some extra card and then add the Bazzil Mini Edges to the tops and bottom.  Finish them off with a stamped sentiment and in no time at all you have cards ready to go.  Oops almost forgot - don't forget to ink the edges of your papers and images.  For my cards today I used Red Archival Ink.
