Christmas Cards with Heidi Swapp Journaling Cards!

Hi there! I hope you've all been having a lovely and a bit crafty week! I had a Christmas card swap recently that I needed to mail a set of 6 cards for and I wanted to create some cards that weren't too thick, so I decided to use a Heidi Swapp Believe paper pack that I've had for a little while. I just love this paper! I originally bought it to complete a mini album, but my poor little album is sitting in a drawer. For a while (a long time ;) I waited, thinking I'd come back to it, but then I decided this paper is just too pretty not to use!

I wanted to use the sketch over at Sweet Sunday Sketches so I used the cut apart sheet of 3x4 chalkboard-look journaling cards in the paper pack as the main element on my card. From there I cut a banner from the paper, which has glittery strips! and then cut a wreath and bow with my Cricut Explore.

Here's the inside - I love a top folding card!

Here's a look at all 6 of the cards! 

Of course, between Joy To The World and Santa Baby Hurry Down the Chimney, I was definitely humming Christmas Tunes!

Thanks for joining me today! Are you getting some Christmas cards done up yet? I hope you're having fun, no matter what you're doing!
