So I confess that I have a hard time making cards... but I forced myself to make a few for a swap. It was a fall/thanksgiving/christmas swap, so I made 2 fall and 2 christmas. I used scraps I had left over from other projects for the fall cards. Once again I used the Autumn Gatherings stack from DCWV. I also used some baker's twine on one of the cards and ribbon on the other from Hobby Lobby. I had some left over leaves that I made for the tags I just posted, so I used a few of those. I also had a cricut cut that wasn't big enough for another project, so I used it on a card (the word Autumn).

For the christmas cards, I used Cloud 9 paper. The gingerbread man was cut from Stretch your Imagination. I then used stickles on him to perk him up a little. The red ribbon was just in my stash.
The ornament card - I used SU stamps for the first time. I bought an ornament punch and a stamp set that included an ornament design. I embossed the design on one of the ornaments with gold powder, and then used another ornament to stamp the sentiment. Then I outlined the ornaments with stickles, and used pop dots for the ornaments to add a little dimension. Thanks for looking!
