  1. I love that diagonal die, so many possibilies with that die. The Christmas card is so beautiful. Love your choice of the Christmas red and white.

  2. I love your cards. I prefer CAS cards. The rainbow paper makes mass producing the tree cards so easy! Great release.

  3. Hi, Elyse –
    Funny, I had a student last year with your same name (not sure about middle name), even spelled the same way. Anyway… Love all three cards, but I especially love small, regular designs so the cover plate w/ the evergreens really appealed to me. I love what you did w/ it and how cool all three of your cards are. Blessings on you now and always.

  4. Great cards, Elyse! I make a lot of cards for Christmas & your ideas are awesome! Love the ombre green one the most & have that tree die on my wish list already!!

  5. The holiday paper pad in this release is so fun and these cards really showcase how great they are! Really pretty cards.

  6. Love the simple cards. Sometimes
    we go overboard with embellishments,
    etc. The cards are colorful and pretty.
    thanks for sharing
