Christmas Card Ideas... FAST Cards!

Religious Theme
Here are four cards we recently created at a speed card class - we completed 20 cards each in three hours.
Dimensions for each follow.

Card 1 (Angel)
White Daisy Base (5½ x 4¼”), Glacier Panel (5¼x4”), White Daisy Panel (4¾ x 3½”)
Stamp lower third of glacier panel with glacier ink and a background stamp. Adhere to card. Stick strips of ruby shimmer trim to the edges. Stamp angel in glacier on the white panel, in the left upper corner. Stamp the sentiment in slate directly onto the panel. Stamp again with ruby ink on scrap white daisy cardstock. Trim and adhere the wording you would like in ruby. Adhere white panel to card.

Card 2 (Wise men)
White Daisy Base (5½ x 4¼”), Outdoor Denim Panel (5¼x4”), White Daisy Panel (5¼ x 2”)
Emboss Outdoor Denim layer. Spritz white daisy panel and stamp Wise Men with Outdoor Denim ink. Daub edges of white daisy with outdoor denim ink. Adhere White cardstock to embossed Outdoor Denim cardstock. Wrap ribbon along the base and adhere in place with three glue dots. Adhere this layer on the base. Stamp sentiment on Cricut die cut with Outdoor Denim ink, and star with Slate. Daub edges with Outdoor Denim. Adhere to card with foam tape.

Card 3 (Stable)
Colonial White Card Base (5½x4¼”), Colonial White panel (5¼x4”)
Create background with bamboo ink on Colonial White panel. Stamp stable, figures and sentiment with Desert Sand ink. Daub edges with Desert Sand ink. Adhere to card base.

Card 4 (Shepherd and Bethlehem)
White Daisy Card Base (3x6”)
Create sky by building up a deep blue background with Pacifica ink and the rounded part of a sponge. Keep the top darker and the bottom lighter. Create space for star by adding circles of increasing size at the upper left corner. Stamp Bethlehem, Star and Shepherd in black ink. You can use second (and third) generation stamping for the town to make it look busier.

 For this class, I used two stamp sets. The Hostess stamp set "Sing Glory" which is quite beautiful, and the "Glory to God" set which is unfortunately now no longer available. However, we do now have a replacement set which is just as stunning, "Reason for the Season", featured below.
 Reason for the Season - $33. D1614

Sing Glory - Hostess only $10. C1587
