Merriest Wishes card set

I decided to sit down at my desk and create an easy batch of holiday cards.  I perused Pinterest Card Sketch board for some ideas.  I found some great sketches posted on Janice's blog, she has a post that includes all the Paper Player sketches in one place.  It was a great resource.  Of course, with such a quantity of cards, I was liberal with the interpretation. This first one is one that is a bit different.  I used some intricately cut glitter tape and layer some old stickers on paper circles.  Since I used patterned paper for the background, I stamped the sentiment on a piece of paper and used a decorative punch.

Here is the sketch I used for this batch.

 For this card I used some small stickers on punched card stock.  They were so small I fit 5 instead of 3.  For the rest of the batch I used my MISTI to stamp the same sentiment over and over.  What a time savor for production.

Here I used only 3 stickers and another fancy punch. This was the fancy square punch from Creative Memories.

These stickers were square so I simply cut larger card stock squares to layer.  I switched up the color of the sentiment.

This one doesn't really follow the sketch but I used the MISTI and the same sentiment.  For all of these cards I used old Creative Memories stickers and paper.
