Jingle Belles Wraps It Up

It is possible that I may need an intervention. I can't seem to stop making Christmas cards!  Granted, a few of them have been for design teams I am on, but the non-Noel mojo seems to have been left behind in 2019. :D Since the Christmas wrapping paper needed to be organized anyway, I decided to play along with the first Jingle Belles challenge of 2020: No Time Like the Presents. I found a remnant of paper with large square illustrations, and made two: 

Look! She's reading a book by a Mitford! Probably Nancy. A mat of red paper, a panel of patterned paper and a white-embossed sentiment didn't seem quite enough, so I added a single die cut snowflake. 

My second snowman is wearing an enamelware pot on his head rather than reading material. (There were Christmas trees in the wrapping paper mix, too, but I forced myself to stop. making. Christmas. cards.) This time I found a leftover panel of stencilled candy canes for a background, and used red cardstock for the card base and the sentiment circle, layering a few together for extra dimension. I'm also adding this to the current CAS on Friday Winter challenge. 

Two more Christmas cards! Which is great, but I may have to lock up the Christmas supplies for a while... ;) 
ETA: And oops, I missed the Jingle Belles deadline! 

Supplies: Neenah white and (?) red cardstock, Echo Park Keepin' Cozy patterned paper, wrapping paper, Hero Arts Get Merry & Flora & Fauna Cozy Cuddles stamps, Versamark & festive berries distress ink, Hero Arts white embossing powder, Picket Fence Studios Candy Cane Lane stencil, Tim Holtz/Sizzix mini snowflakes & Winnie & Walter Katharine cutaway die, 1" circle punch
