Christmas Card Kick Off : Day 4

I am so happy people continue to send holiday cards - have you gotten any yet?   It's so much fun to receive a card in the mail and  heading to the mailbox this time of year is especially exciting.  We've been showing great card ideas all week long and today is no exception.   Desginer Anthonette Chavez's clean and simple style of card making is eye-catching.   She also uses great papers and has a great eye for color. 

This approach uses a photo.  Got to love the photo cards!  She stamped using Peanuts Christmas Wishes Peel & Stick pack. The card makes a real impact with such a gorgeous photo. 

Next up, she created this Joy card using U.B.U. Peppermint Swing Peel & Stick stamps.   Loving the paper she's used here.

Lastly, Anthonette made this very fun Happy Holidays card using Smirk Cafeeine Confidants.  I love how in all of her work she's colored in the stamp.   This would be a great card to send a friend. 

Thanks for following us this week for our Christmas card spectacular.   Up next week - more holiday ideas...
