Evensong Christmas easel cards

I hosted my first scrapbook weekend in Canmore last weekend and actually managed to get some work done! I made these special order cards for a colleague at work. She has two relatives who are born on Christmas day so she likes to order "happy birthday" Christmas cards as she can never find them in the stores. She also picked traditional Christmas colors so I pulled out my Close To My Heart Evensong paperpack to make all these cards and coordinating ribbon/embellishments. The paper flowers are from my local craft store and Wild Orchid Crafts.

The first two cards are made with Magnolia stamps from the 2011 Sweet Christmas collection. The houses and Holly arrangement are from Stamping Bella. The final card (which totally reminds me of Holly Hobby from the 70's) is a Sarah Kay stamp.
