As shown above, this kit contains materials to make 10 completed cards. The included papers are reminiscent of our Festive Farmhouse paper which is a hot commodity this year.

Aren’t these cards just gorgeous? They just look like a cozy Christmas to me. They make me want to cuddle up in a blanket and watch Christmas movies…and drink hot chocolate.

Instead of making the entire kit into 10 cards, I chose to make six and save the other materials for some alternative ideas. Here you can see the insides of two cards that I stamped using the stamp set in the kit.

Now let’s see some alternative ideas. Here is a scrapbook page that I made using my four remaining envelopes. Each of the red plaid papers on the background was the inside of an envelope that I cut open and trimmed down.

I love how the ‘letter’ and envelope look on the page.

Here is another alternative idea. I got my inspiration for this banner from a fall one I made a few years ago. I love how it turned out! Our burlap ribbon was the perfect addition to ‘tie it all together’…haha.
