Hi there everyone!
By now, I'm sure that many of you have started working on your Christmas cards already. If not, finished them altogether! (to be honest, I haven't even started!! So I've got a bit of work ahead of me! Yikes!)

Simple Stories is having a product swap with Epiphany Crafts this week and all week long the Simple Stories blog has several designers each day sharing some creative & beautiful projects. You won't want to miss them! PLUS there's going to be some great PRIZES given away at the end of the week. All you have to do is leave a comment on the SS blog and LIKE their Facebook page for a chance to win a SS Prize pack.

When I received some of the Epiphany Crafts Bubble Caps I knew right away that I was going to create some cards with them. They were the perfect shape for the ideas that I wanted to create on my cards.

My 1st card, "Celebrate the Season",  I decided to make a Christmas Tree shape/design using the Epiphany Bubble Caps. I used 5 of them and staggered them into a triangular shape.
I then used the 'i' alphabet sticker from Simple Stories Handmade Holiday collection along with a few other stickers to embellish the front of the card. It's a very simple design to keep your eyes drawn to the tree feature.

My 2nd card, "Walking in a Winter Wonderland",  is again a simple design. I wanted to use the button stickers from the Simple Stories Handmade Holiday sticker collection along with the Epiphany Bubble Caps.  They make the stickers look so glossy and raised up - looking like real buttons almost.
I created my card with some stickers, patterned papers & ribbon.  Then finished it off by adding the button stickers with the Ephiphany Bubble Caps. Super easy & super cute!

Thanks for looking.
