36 sleeps till Christmas!

Wow... where did the year go?
Over the next couple of weeks I'll be sharing a card or two every day - be sure to check back regularly so you can see what goodies I've been creating! 
These cards will all be from my personal Christmas list (which is a big one!) - Normally I choose 3 or 4 designs and batch my cards, but this year, I have challenged myself to make each card a one- off. 
(crazy hey!).  This year I need to make around 60 cards, so we'll kick things off today - here's the first to cards - using papers from the Doodlebug Designs "Santa's Workshop" collection!
 This first card uses a die cut from the cute cuts page, and then a strip from each side of the "pretty poinsettia" paper.  I added a red rhinestone to the centre of each poinsettia for a little extra bling, and glossied up Santa with some Glossy Accents.  
 For the second card, I used  a thick strip of Teeny Toys paper, and two thin strips of the reverse side of Little Helpers.  I like to use paper as sparingly as I can, so instead of using a full 10x15cm block of the green, I used two strips that I cut to the right size.  
I wrapped a little piece of hot pink organza ribbon around the card, and tied a cute bow, and finished off the card with a topper from the cute cuts page, raised on foam tape squares.  The rubon is from kaisercraft's Christmas Card set of rubons

How are your Christmas preparations coming along?
Happy Scrappin!
