another pair of Christmas adventures

Nacho Average Challenges offered a great sketch that was just made for a place on my Christmas Card Buffet:
stamp sets - Joy to the World, Very Merry Tags; ink - Island Indigo, Silver Encore; card stock - Brushed Silver, Coastal Cabana, Whisper White; designer series paper - Winter Frost; punch - Mosaic; Stampin' Dimensionals
 
Seeing it in flat 2-D makes me think I cut the lower section a little too large, or maybe the ornaments should be moved down? and maybe the sentiment could be stamped directly on the card base?  There may need to be just a bit of tweaking before Saturday...

While I was uploading photos from my camera I came across this one that we made at our most recent Star Struck Stampers' shoebox swap - thanks to my sideline, Janet! - which is perfect for Not a Creature Was Stirring at Jingle Belles as well as for Clean and Simple at Addicted to Stamps and More!:
stamp set - Heard from the Heart (retired); ink - Cherry Cobbler; paper - Cherry Cobbler, Old Olive, Silver Glimmer, Whisper White; punches - Bird Builder, Small Star (retired); Big Shot with Little Leaves sizzlit; Stampin' Dimensionals

I like it-clean and simple. I send out well over 100 cards at Christmas and definitely need 'easy to duplicate' cards. TFS-
