The deadline for sending cards in time for delivery by Christmas Day is approaching. According to the USPS, First Class Mail (i.e., cards and letters) must be sent by Dec 19 (That's this Saturday!). If you have yet to finish making your cards, LD has a set that may help.

Their Season Greetings Cards look complicated but are surprisingly easy to make. The set includes 16 card designs and I am showcasing two today.
The first card that I used was File #14. The design looks pretty but intricate and I was concerned that it would be difficult to cut. I couldn't be more thrilled when the cut turned out to be absolutely perfect!
I had used a double-sided patterned cardstock for the card front and I couldn't use the card as intended by LD- there is no blank space inside it for writing a greeting. So I layered the whole thing over a white card base. That way, there will be plenty of writing space inside the card.
To bling it up, I used some Stickles and enamel dots. I think it turned out pretty cute.
For the second card, I used File #10 and made a slight modification to it.
Instead of using the design as-is, I extracted the card front and layered that over a white card base.
I assembled the layers together with tape and glue and once again, I used Stickles and enamel dots to make it look more interesting.
Here's the finished card:
