City Sidewalks Christmas

Meet City Sidewalks, one of the new paper collections featured in the Holiday Expressions Catalog by Close to My Heart.  The paper pack comes with 12 sheets of B&T Duos paper, ( 2 each of 6 designs).  One of the designs is filled with images that are perfect for pocket scrapbooking.  Since I am a traditional scrapbooker, the designs equal perfect cards for me!  The front of my card is simply one of those images layered onto a card base.  Super simple card in mere minutes.

Take a look at the other patterns included...
The fun bright colors are going to make a great set of Christmas cards. There are even numerous coordinating stamp sets that go along with the paper designs and..........A NEW CRICUT COLLECTION AS WELL! Cricut City Sidewalks has 30 complete images including titles, photo frames, borders, card sentiments, card overlays and other cheery Christmas Designs!  Super cute collection!

I added a coordinating strip of cardstock in the inside of my card as well.  This is a great way to use up any scraps you might have left in the kit and adds so much to your card.
