A few holiday cards

I was planning out a few cards for my annual card making get-together, I was on a roll so I just kept making more. I keep meaning to use more felt. I finally picked up a metal shim for use with detailed dies and wow, does it ever make a difference! The spellbinders snowflakes cut out so nicely! I was in the mood for something bright and colourful and not terribly traditional.

For the second card, I just felt like decorating a tree.I stamped it, cut it out, wrapped it with baker's twine, attached a few buttons, and topped it with a star.
