Quilted look Christmas cards

 A few Christmas cards for my stash!!  I found the supplies for these six cards in a box of miscellaneous supplies that got packed out of a drawer when we moved.  I noticed the box a while back and decided today I should check and see what was in it.  Lo and behold, I had almost all the supplies already cut for these.  I had previously taped several strips of cardstock side by side and trimmed them down to one inch.  I alternated the squares so the colours would be askew, taped the strips together and die cut a label from them using the Ornamental Die (TH).
I embossed each one with a different embossing folder, sponged the edges with brown, added a length of glittery red rick rack and mounted it to a stippled kraft card front.  The greetings (when scrap hits the fun) were already laser printed so I punched out six of them with a 1.25" punch (SU), layered then onto red 1 3/8" punchies (SU) and then onto green scalloped circle punchies (SU).  I mounted the greetings to the card front using 3D foam tape.
There are a few more supplies for Christmas cards in the box, which I will use this year and the rest of the "stuff" will be filed accordingly into my plastic drawers.
I am happy to have made a few more cards for February!!  These were very quick considering that the supplies were almost all ready to go!!  That brings my total to 34 for this year!!
