{MFT} CAS Christmas Cards

Hey there! Hope everyone had a great weekend! We had a nice, but pretty busy one :) Friday night my boys and I played a pirate board game and I worked on a project for my stamping ladies- we meet Monday night! We are making a fun Christmas project (I'll share pics soon) and then I got to have a nice hot bath when hubs got home from work, to soothe my poor aching back! I hurt it last week, then hurt it more tying skates, then proceeded to slip on the ice when I was getting out of my truck on friday! Jeez! Saturday we went into town and had a nice lunch out and then saw Rise of the Guardians, which was FREAKING AMAZING in my opinion!! I LOVED every second of it and would see it again in a heartbeat! I can't wait for it to come out on DVD!! (I think I get excited about kids movies more than the kids! lol) Today we had my hubby's family Christmas with all the extended families that we don't get to see to often- we rented a little hall, so that no one had to worry about anything. It was catered and all. Nice! No work, no mess!
This morning I thought I should pump out a few cards for the family! I saw something like this on pinterest a few weeks ago, jotted down a simple sketch and here they are (I have no idea where the card  is, I didn't 'pin' it, just saw it on there somewhere).

I used MFT's Winter Wreath dienamic to make the wreath and bow (the wreath was cut twice from Old Olive CS, and bow once from Cherry Cobbler CS). I used Very Vanilla CS for the rest of the 'door' as well as the card base. I added a little door knob using a large brown brad. 

These have a bit of dimension with the gorgeous wreath, but are still flat enough to fit easily into an envie. I am going to make more of these for the rest of my cards I still have to give.  I made 8 in an hour, just to give you an idea- so that's under 10 minutes per card! (and that included my tinkering around with measurements and such)...and if I would have had another wreath die, it would have gone even faster ;) I think the next batch will go quicker.

On the inside, I simply stamped the sentiment in Old Olive ink (SU). It's from the set Seasonal Sentiments, which is such a great go-to set for all your Christmas verses!

Thanks for popping in!
