Quick and Easy Jolly Santa Cards

I can, and often do, take hours over making cards but as Christmas rapidly approaches I've realised that I need to make some quick cards that still look special. These three cards, all made with the Docrafts Jolly Santa range, fit the brief exactly.

For each card I've used papers from the A4 or A5 paper packs, a decoupage image from the A4 decoupage packs, a ribbon and bow. All I've added to these core elements are a few embellishments from my stash.

For the Gingerbread Man card, my son's favourite, I chose to use the gingerbread man separately from the rest of the decoupage tag as a cute embellishment. I have added some pearls as buttons too.

The second card is probably the most traditional of the three and I love this backing paper. The bows in this range are quite large meaning that little more embellishment is needed.

The final card features my favourite colour combination this Christmas, blue and red. I've added a little glitter glue to this image for sparkle (I really don't often do glitter to be honest but this way is less messy) and some blue Papermania gems in the corner.

The great thing now is that I have some design templates that I can use to make quick cards using all of my favourite Christmas ranges.

Thanks for visiting today. I really do appreciate all of your lovely comments.
