Gecko Galz Samples for November

"THERE IS NO PLACE LIKE GNOME FOR THE HOLIDAY" That is my theme for this month which you will see why when you see my samples! If you are anything like me, you send a butt load of cards out for Christmas (I send out over 50 cards) and since it is getting closer to that time, you have less time to get your cards made. So making these kind of cards makes it alittle easier. I am talking about C&S cards (CLEAN AND SIMPLE)!
So here are 10 cards that can be made in a jiffy! All these cards are A2 size (5 1/2 x 4 1/4) I used cream color cardstock for most of the card bases, 2 are white cardstock. Everything on these cards are inked in brown ink. This is a great way to use your scraps because all the card fronts are from my Christmas scrap drawer. All ribbons are from my ribbon stash.....just pick the colors that match your card front papers. I usually don't stamp any sayings on the inside because I write in them but you can.


The images are from the Christmas Magic 2 collage sheet 
and the little Noel is from some Christmas words I had, but you can print your 
own on the computer or use a word stamp


These are the 2 cards I used the white cardstock for the card bases. 
The white doily I got from Hobby Lobby 
and on the sides of the doily there are red brads.
The images are from the Christmas Magic 2 collage sheet.


The 1st card image is from the Christmas Magic 1 collage sheet 
and  I matted it with red cardstock. The second card image is from the Christmas Magic 2 collage sheet. The doily is from Hobby Lobby and I put a circle of red cardstock in the middle.
  

This first card is one of my favorites, the image is from the Christmas Magic 2 collage sheet and the Happy Holiday words are from some Christmas words I had (but you can print words from your computer or use a stamp). The nest is from our Christmas Haberdashery 1 collage sheet. The second card image is from the Christmas Magic 2 collage sheet and the word you can print from your computer or use a stamp.


The images are from the Christmas 1 collage sheet on both cards. 
The doily on 1st card is from Hobby Lobby and there are red brads in the four corners. 
The 2nd card had a square mat behind the image and 2 small buttons on the side of the image. 

Hope you enjoyed all the cards and here is your free digital stamp for this month:
