Christmas Cards - Lawn Fawn "Ornate Ornaments"

Yesterday I was really wanting to do a Christmas card to post using a great Stampin' Up stamp set.  However, I just couldn't figure out where to start for my card to give it the "look" I wanted.  Finally, around 4:30 pm I checked the mail and there was my Simon Says Stamp order.  A while back I won a giveaway on Nichol Magourik's blog.  It was a $30 Gift Certificate to Simon Says Stamp.  How cool is that?!  I ordered the Lawn Fawn "Ornate Ornaments" stamp set and that was what I needed to get my Christmas card-making juices flowing.

What I love about Lawn Fawn is they have You Tube videos for each of their stamp sets showing you all the different ways to use the set.  I love that.  Here's the link to the video for the Ornate Ornaments set.  And here are 2 cards that I came up with.
 The one above was stamped on Kraft card stock. 
The "Deck the Halls" sentiment is from the Stampin' Up set "Merry and Type."  The stamps are beautifully nostalgic-looking.  The paper stack I used on the above card came from my Simon Says Stamp order as well.  It'll be my next Paper Addict post.  It's so adorable.  I can't wait to show it to you!

Happy Crafting!
