I have several Christmas paper stacks which I have never used. I pulled one out this month and decided to use a few sheets. Someone said that when you use a sheet of paper, use it all. Do you realize how many cards you can make out of one 12 x12 sheet of paper? The first card using the  green print is the crimped card on the right. The card on the left, I used the negative of the diamond. The two solids are from  8 1/2 x 11 sheets of CS. I used the red and beige papers for the foundation of the cards. The other halves will be used in other cards.


As you can see, that piece of green print is still being used along with the red and the green. I still have more of the green print which will probably go into the scrap drawer. 
I received the snowman images in a swap about a year ago. I have a stack of images (about 5" high) and have never used any of them. Today I did! All of the snowmen  I colored using pencils, Zig markers, Twinklett pens, Galexy markers and/or Slick writers. . The buttons and the eyes are black half pearls. On the print paper I colored some of the leaves with a green Twinklett pen and added the red gems. The two top fold cards were made for SCS challenges.

Beautiful cards! I just love green when making Christmas cards. There's just something so lively about that hue.

Love all the X-mas cards. It is so true that you can get a lot out of 1 piece of 12X12. Take Care
