Keepin' it simple, Christmas style

I'm doing a couple Christmas cards with my club for November and December, since my busy schedule isn't going to allow me to hold a Christmas card buffet this year. (So sad...) I told them I'd have at least one simple Christmas card, and lucky for them I had time to make two. I thought I would share how they turned out.

This first one is my very first attempt at the thinlits flip cards. I find myself stumped as to how to decorate this, so I left it pretty simple. I'm open to suggestions for what I could add, though! I'm submitting this to SUO Challenges since I used the Festive Flurry stamp set.

 For this next one I took the photo at the Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge as my starting point.

I used the extrafine gold glitter to add some sparkle to my tree and then embossed the gold foil paper to go behind it. This beautiful tree is featured in the set Special Season.

I'm going to keep the chatter simple as well and get on with my preparations for tomorrow night. I hope you enjoyed these CAS Christmas cards!

Gorgeous!! Love the snowflake flip-it card and I do not think you need to add anything to it at all! Also love the Christmas season tree card (the gold foil looks fabulous embossed with the Delicate Accent EF) :-) Thanks for playing along with us at SUO Challenges!

Oooooh, love both your cards. The flip card doesn't need anything else because of the stunning panels of DSP. LOVE the gold embossed panel on the second. Thanks for joining in with the challenges at SUO.

Oh, love the classiness of the flip card...clean and elegant! You've let the paper and design speak for itself! The tree card is gorgeous, too! Thanks for playing along with the Let it Snow SUO Challenge this time!
