Coming up with an idea is often the hardest and most time consuming part of creating cards and at Christmas, when my time is at a premium, I don't have time to sit in my craft room thinking of ideas. Plus there are so many great ideas out there, I actually find great enjoyment in being able to duplicate someone else's ideas. So these are the cards I copied this year and I've included links to the original creators card. The first three use the same stamp set Stitched Stockings. I love this set and I was so sad when it retired last year.
This first one is by LeeAnn Greff and was featured in this post.
Next is this card by Linda Aarhus. I love how it glitters.
