Mid Month Reminder for Christmas Kickstart Challenge

 This year has had me making Christmas cards every month, so I'll certainly be ready for the season.  Here are my latest mini-slimline cards made as inspiration for the Christmas Kickstart Challenge.  There are now challenges with Christmas and Winter so you can find one that fits your winter cards.

My first card has lots of presents and instead of Santa, a gnome is in charge of all the gifts and stockings.

Cas-ual Fridays Sleighride - the sleigh
Elizabeth Craft Designs Santa's Sleigh - trees & gifts

My second card sports a new die cut and is a mini-trifold card.

Magenta stencil (no name on stencil)
Copic markers
Distress inks cracked Pistachio & Milled Lavender
