Ladybug Ink Blog Hop: Quick and Easy Christmas Cards

It's time once again for the monthly Ladybug Ink Blog Hop! This month we are focusing on the holidays. I love Thanksgiving, but it's all about Christmas for me. :) So this month, I focused on Christmas cards, the quick and easy variety. I love making Christmas cards, but with a 2 year old to chase, I just don't have time make elaborate Christmas cards. That's why I loved using the Snow Festival Designer Printed Tags and the Note Cards to make these quick and easy Christmas cards. The printed tags are a great starting point for simple, yet heartfelt, cards. Stamp, adhere, add an embellishment, and wa-la, a beautiful, handmade Christmas card.

The Snow Festival Designer Printed Tags   (128152, $3.95) come 25 to a pack, with 5 each of 5 designs. It's a great deal, and you can use the tags for a variety of things. Obviously, I used my pack to make cards, but these would also make great labels, great to/from tags, place tags, and stocking stuffers. Below are five cards I made using the tags with a few additional supplies.

Isn't this owl the cutest little thing?
