3x Non-Christmassy Cards!

Maya Road | Maya Road

It's soon Christmas, and with that - time to wrap up those Christmas-cards!
Here's two not-too-Christmassy-cards for your inspiration...(at least I tried to make them not too Christmassy - did it work?).

I'll freely admit - I'm totally in love with the Crystal Star trinket pins...I seriously need at least two more boxes of these! It's especially perfect for cards & tags...I also love the Let It Snow Stamp Sheet & the vintage wood snowflakes..wish I found some of the Snowflake Transparencies - White - it'd be perfect here, tucked in between the doily & the tag and banner...ahwell!

Maya Road suppplies:
Trinket Pin - Crystal Star 
Let It Snow Stamp Sheet
Vintage Wood Snowflakes
Wood Bingo Numbers - red

The chipboard snowflake seen here is actually from an older version - I recall ordering a whole bag of these for me and the kids to paint white, add glitter & ribbon/twine so we could use them as Christmas Tree decorations..nevertheless..the chipboard snowflakes are now available in a newer and updated design found here. But - nothing's better than using up all the older bits and pieces you have lying at home, no? Makes you feel more ok about getting newer stuff...=)

Maya Road Supplies:
(vintage =) ) Chipboard Snowflakes
Vintage Paper Posies
Love Banner Stamp Sheet (for the stamped letters & star)

Also - you've seen the Early Winter Release 2012, right? :)

Using the Scallop Frames Chipboard Set , white crackle paint and Popsicle Blue Maya Mist I made this funky looking frame...frames stuff pretty nicely, doesn't? And I love the new large Kraft Ticket Strips..such a handy size and a great addition to the regular, small ones..
