Yes there is still time to get those cards finished and in the mail.  Here are a few more suggestions.

Card & Box

This is a 5" X 7" card with matching box made from a 5" x 7" card.  For the box, just cut 1/8" off the folded edge of the card.  Next score 1" in from all four edges on both pieces.  On the ends of the 2 pieces, cut in to the score line on both corners, then on the opposite end.  All pieces stay attached, do not cut corners out.   Now you can fold on the score lines and glue the flaps to the inside making the bottom of the box.  Fold the top on all score lines and cut to score line on ends just like the bottom of the box.  Lay this piece over the bottom of the box, fold in shape and glue.  Remove top from bottom.  By making the top this way, the top will always fit perfectly to the bottom of the box.
You can use old cards to make boxes, and the box size will be determined by the size of the card.
Supplies: Outdoor Denim CS (1275),
 Blessings of Peace Stamp Set ( B1406),
 Silver Embossing Powder (Z669)
Sparkles (Z1792)

This card comes from the directions of the
 Workshop on the Go Pear & Partridge
 Cardmaking Kit (G1043).  The stamp set is exclusive to the kit.

This card was one of  our unit meeting projects and used the
 Merry & Bright Stamp Set (C1510).  You can see I used one of the stamps to create the back round on the card.

I got the idea for this card from a post and am sorry to say I can't find the post to give her credit.  It is one of my favorite cards this year.  It uses the To You and Yours Stamp Set (B1403),
 the Colonial White Rose Ribbon (Z1800) and
 the Pin Clips (Z1612)

This card was cut using the Art Philosophy and Artiste Cartridges from CTMH, and the
 Merry & Bright Stamp Set (C1510).

This last card is also one of the cards from the Workshops on the Go Pear & Partridge Cardmaking Kit (G1043. 
 This stamp set is exclusive to this kit.

I hope I have given you some card ideas you can use.  Most of these cards used the Pear & Partridge Papers (X7162B).

Be sure to check back tomorrow for even more Christmas ideas.
