PEACE Triangle Christmas Treeby Ann Greenspan
If you are you looking for a quick Christmas card that you can reproduce by the dozen in no time at all, do I have a card for you.
Simply cut out the letters P, C and (2) E's out of any alpha die you have as long as they will fit on a 5x7 card or bigger. Next die cut the Triangle Christmas Tree die by Frantic Stamper (FRA-Die-09254); I used glitter paper for mine. Adhere with a glue pen and the card is done. Of course you can glam it up by adding Stickles or gems to the tree.
For the blue card below, I traced the outer edge of the Triangle Christmas Tree die onto blue paper, manually cut it out and adhered the silver diecut to the blue base.

"Good Luck"by Rozy
The Frantic Stamper Dies are absolutely awesome to use! Quick, Clean & Elegant.
Start with an A2 card base in white, layer red foil cut down 1/4" on all sides.
Cut a 4" x 3" piece of white cardstock, using "Party" sheet of paper from KaiserCraft's Tropical Punch Collection, cut out panel of choice and trim to fit the 4"x3" white cardstock.
Cut the Asian Screen Card Panel from Gold Foil, layer over the red foil, then adhere the above panel.
Cut Good Luck from Green Foil. Adhere the words and a small bow!
Voila, couldn't be easier!

Reverse Cut Triangle Christmas Treeby Jen Carter
The cold weather has moved in and with the cold blasts of air is the reminder that the holidays are right around the corner. I know a lot of you are working on making your Christmas cards and so today I am going to share an easy Christmas card with you that I recently made.
This card was so simple to put together! I started by cutting my white glitter mat to the size I wanted it and then rounded the corners with a corner rounder. I really like this die by Frantic Stamper called Reverse Cut Triangle Christmas Tree. I lined it up on the glitter cardstock and die cut. The cool thing about this die is you can use it two ways. You can use it how it is intended like I did here or you can use the negative pieces that cut out and piece them together to create the tree also!
I wanted to keep the card soft so I chose a soft turquoise pattern paper to put behind the die cut tree. I popped the white glitter piece up with dimensionals and added some clear sequins for just a touch more bling.
To finish the card I cut a little banner and added a button with some floss. I almost always add a sentiment to the front of my card, but this one just didn't seem to need one.
One more thing before I go. Did you know that Frantic Stamper now has a Flickr gallery!? We'd love to see what you've been creating using the Frantic Stamper line of Exclusive Precision dies!

Believeby Kathy Berger
This card beckons back to a special time of youth when believing in Santa Clause made Christmas morning simply magical, with family all gathered, a feast being prepared, decorations of green and red throughout the house, and gifts appearing from seemingly nowhere to fill the the space under the tree...
All this card required was some festive holiday paper, red, white, and black card-stocks, a scrap of craft foam, glue, and a white gel pen. I simply cut the card-stock with the dies, added white trim to Santa's suit with the gel pen, and assembled the bow, stacking the swirl bow atop the solid bow. The "Believe" was cut out of the craft foam in addition to the card-stock, stacked and glued together.
Everything was then simply glued in place on the festive layer on the card front... this card took mere minutes to make, but I think it will give more than minutes of pleasure to the recipient! Hopefully, it will bring back some memories of those magical Christmastimes of his or her childhood, as well...

Christmas Tagby Sharon Jeffs
I think the thing I like best about this tag is how quick it was to create! Using the patterned tissue paper layered over the tags surface instantly gave it the feel of a stamped surface without having to plan out any placement.
Once the tissue paper was dried to the tag, I added layers of Distress stains until I liked the result then I edged the whole tag with Walnut Stain ink using a blending tool.
The lamp post diecut and the words were all painted with the Black Distress Paint then a layer of the Brushed Pewter Distress paint was dabbed over the surface of the lamppost to give it a metallic look!
