Butterfly Christmas Cards

I've been playing with my new Cristina Re butterfly paper punch a lot lately. I'm in love. So, I have finally finished a set of christmas cards that I'm beyond happy with for once (I think the pretty butterflies might just be the reason why!). I'm having a hard time choosing a favourite, I love them all so much!
These cards are incredibly easy to make, which is great if you are battling brain fog like I have been lately. I'll admit, at the beginning, figuring out colour combinations did my head in, but once that was all sorted these cards came together effortlessly.The colour combinations you can use are endless, and the real bonus is that they look classy and elegant.
