Here is the card set that I made:
I made these cards using cream colored cardstock.. the patterned papers are all from the holiday collection by DCWV.. I used some clare stamps for the sentiments. I added some gold ribbon to 2 of the cards and some red bakers twine on one of the cards. For the window card I cut the center our leaving 1 inch around all edges.
I tried to keep all of my cards fairly simple.. the most complicated is probably the one with the candy cane and I just free hand cut a candy cane out of the stripped paper and then used pop dots to put the candy cane back into place.
