If you visit my blog at all, then you know that I am a huge fan of mini cards!  I've used Glad Tidings again in brown ink on kraft......love the monochromatic color!  The sentiment is from the Poinsettia Christmas stamp set by Verve.
 
 
Merry Christmas

Great kit, Amy! I just love the second card. The way you used the red burlap is really awesome, I didn't think of cutting it down! And then your mini card is just beautiful :)

Renee said...

Yes!!
I loved this kit...
I just couldn't decide what to use right now and what to hang onto for later...
after seeing what everyone was able to come up with using these incredible goodies! :)
And now I wish I had just hung onto all of them...
and I'm just on the 2nd blog!
Love everything here...
but then I knew I would! :)

Sensational kit this month, Amy! And your own cards are fantastic! I really really love the first layout! You've managed to update a vintage and elegant design!

Marybeth said...

Oh course you came up with some of the most beautiful cards! Wow they are just all so very perfect. Love the added hearts that go perfectly with that sentiment.
Thanks for the beautiful kit Amy. I had so much fun making Christmas cards in this very hot month. Hop you get to enjoy some of this long weekend.

Beautiful cards! I love the traditional colors and those fantastic trims, especially the burlap!

Kim Heggins said...

Amy, wow...you did amazing things with your kit and I love each and everyone one of them. I am in love with what you did with the red burlap, just beautiful and then the stitching around the edge, just fabulous! thank you again for a wonderful kit.

Colleen said...

All are wonderful cards, Amy. I too love the first one...the stitching adds so much to the card and the bright red hearts and the banners are perfect to draw your eyes to the wonderful sentiment.

Lindsey said...

What a gorgeous kit you assembled. The projects you've created with it are beautiful!

Kara said...

Thanks so much for such a great kit! I love your dressed up pillow box. The heart card is my favorite!!

Jeanne J said...

Hi Amy! I loved your beautiful kit! I love the Verve stamps and I think you have me hooked on them! Your projects are wonderful - I love the last with the snowflakes on the kraft!

Joyce said...

What a super bunch of projects you made. I think my favorite is that sweet pillow box with tag, and the 2nd card with the hearts. Thanks for sending such a fun kit.

Cathy Weber said...

Loved the kit you sent Amy...it was totally you! Iove the red banner die cut...everyone seemed to really love that piece, it was used so much! I also love the beautiful sentiments you included in the kit. Your first card is my very favorite. Great kit, so excited to rejoin you all next month.

Sharron said...

Your projects are just amazing! Love the stitching you added to the first two. And I didn't think about cutting the burlap. That was such a wonderful addition to the kit. Your heart card is my favorite--love everything about it! Thanks so much for a wonderful kit!!!

Janis said...

Your Christmas cards are just so beautiful!!

Oh thanks SO much for this lovely kit, Amy! Your heart card with the banner is my fave, so sweet with that paper and my fave sentiment. The snowflakes looks so elegant against that kraft background. The green brocade paper is the perfect background for the Verve wreath...I am thinking I need the wreath, banner die, and "Christmas in the Heart" sentiment after your kit, eeek!

Lesley said...

I love all the beautiful neutral tones you used on your cards and projects. The snowflakes in the verve set are so pretty! Christmas is my favorite time for stamping! I love what you shared today, Amy.

Jill Norwood said...

Amy I love the cards you made with your wonderful kit! So fun to see what everyone else made too as I hop around! Your posts always inspire me dear! :)

Marsha said...

Wow, what beautiful Christmas cards. Must save some of these ideas - I am working on Christmas cards right now too.

Christina said...

Amy, this was such a fun kit to work with, especially the unique ingredients like the burlap and mini cards. I adore the sentiment on your first card and the banner tucked under the sentiment panel. Our "Joy" cards are so similar--what fun! The strip of burlap is fantastic. I will be sharing a mini card soon, and I will definitely be using the tags on some pillow boxes. Yours is so cute! Thanks again for a wonderful kit!
