Seeing green for Christmas

I really should be making more Easter cards, but I can't resist when it comes to making Christmas cards (and I make about 600 every year, so I really do need to spread the task throughout the year).

There are lots of crafting challenges around atm asking for green to be used, and this includes this month's challenge on Christmas cards all year round where we are asked to use two different green patterned papers. My Anna Griffin papers have come to rescue for these cards - just adding some 3D holly stickers to the first two, with a sentiment and a fun reindeer sticker to the third card. The dark green paper on the first two cards is very glittery and the green paper on the third card is flocked, so feels lovely.

These are also for:

Card caravan (the hybrid chick) 14: lucky green
Secret crafter Saturday 175: go for green
House of Gilli 27: Gilli goes green
Paper pretties Monday challenge: going green
Dare to be sassy Thursdays 114: seeing green
Hiding in my craft room 36: colour challenge - monochromatic green
Crafty boots: glitter (the first two cards)
The pink elephant 138: let's see those layers (the first two cards)
