Christmas jump start

It seems like Christmas is still so far off, but in reality, it will be here sooner than I think and I'll be in the same predicament as past years - caught unprepared for the ton of hand-stamped holiday cards that I send out! So I'm trying to get a head start on designing some cards that will be easy to mass produce.
This first one is VERY simple, but the heat embossing really makes it pop, especially on that Kraft cardstock!

And again, another very simple card that will be easy to mass produce.

Thanks for stopping by!
