Christmas Cards and Tags

I've just got a couple of more Christmas items to show you before December 25th.  Below is a card we made at my Christmas in July Stamp a stack.  It features the very versatile set Circle Circus - I love this set, it's especially good for male cards and making elements for scrapbooking pages. If you changed the colours to something more blokey, omitted the rhinestones perhaps and changed the greeting to Happy Birthday or Happy Father's Day  you would have an excellent male card.

Stamps:  Circle Circus, Season of Joy
Paper:  Whisper White, Real Red, Old Olive
Ink:  Real Red, Old Olive, Craft White
Accessories:  5/8"  Real Red Grosgrain, Rhinestone Basic Jewels, 1 3/8" Circle Punch, 1" Circle Punch, 1/2" Circle Punch

The next one uses the elegant Tree Trimmings.  The detail on the middle stamp is so intricate and gorgeous, so I decided to highlight it by cutting it out and mounting with a dimensional.  The greeting is from Occasional Greetings and I thought the style and the words matched the elegance of the card just perfectly.
