Beat the Christmas Rush challenge - January

Sliding in under the wire, yet again...... LOL.  These cards are for the Beat the Christmas Rush challenge over on Creative Craft World.  This challenge starts on the 25th of each month, basically it is making a few cards each month in order to have a nice box-full in time for Christmas! 
I have made four to the same formula - contrasting papers (Craft Creations) at top and base, with a die-cut border (Dienamics) to cover the join, framed with silver peel off lines.  A stamped sentiment and a stamped/embossed snowflake image - the plain snowflake is a Cart-us stamp and the holly leaf snowflake is a Craft Stamper freebie.  The snowflakes are matted onto a doily edge circle (Dienamics) cut from the same bazzill cardstock as the border.
These cards really lend themselves to a 'production line' cardmaking session, very quick and easy :-)
