mulitple christmas cards

Afternoon everyone, i hope you are having a lovely crafty weekend.
For a while now i have been showing you all my christmas cards i have been making. I am very proud that i started early and have made a fair few now. I am really into christmas already and wanted to come up with some quick and easy cards to send to people. For example my neighbours. I say hello to them when i see them but dont really know much about them. It took me a while to come up with an idea. A card that i could make lots of and quickly. I came up with these,

They are plain and simple. There is 2 designs. One has a poinsettia and the other candy canes.

The images and the sentiment are from whimsy stamps called vintage Christmas. I stamped them onto the red cardstock with a clear embossing ink pad. Sprinkled gold embossing powder over it and heat embossed with a heat gun. Then i just added some sparkly gold ribbon from hobbycraft.

I have made 6 in total so far. Took me about an hour. The hardest thing was trying to get the gold ribbon to stick to the card. I had to use glossy accents to stick it down but don't use too much as it shows through the ribbon in patches. Absolutely love glossy accents.

totally gorjuss-sparkle
2 sisters-anything goes

It would be really nice and much appericated if you would leave a comment. I do love to read them and any constructive critism is welcome. What would you add or do different?
