Yes.........I did say CHRISTMAS in March!
I think I mentioned in a previous post that I had a goal of making 8 Christmas cards a month, every month so that my holiday cards will be finished by October or November.
Well, I just discovered a blog that is going to really help me do that!!! It's called: Christmas Card Challenges and they host a weekly challenge where Christmas/Holiday cards are the focus! I was so excited to find this that I also posted it on the PTI Christmas Card forum that a bunch of us are posting our cards, too.
I really got busy on Sunday of this past week and made all of the following cards! This week's challenge was NO STAMPING! At first, I thought that there was no way I could do this, but then I remembered that I had bought a bunch of embellishments at a "Scrap-the-day-away" event last October. Not to mention some felt snowflakes that I bought from SU and then the vellum and stickers that came with some DCWV papers. I also take Christmas cards from the past and take parts of them that I think will make nice additions to cards that I want to make......ie, ribbon, embellishments, stick-ons, etc......and some of the cards I made with these are among my favorites.
So, sit back and take a look at these Christmas cards!
I'm so excited at how many I made!
|Had these bubble type stickers to match the Imaginisce paper.|
|This one isn't my favorite.........but, I wanted to use those stickers!|
|Love these! The paper has a canvas texture!|
|These vellum sentiments came with a pack of DCWV patterned paper......Might as well use them!|
And my absolute favorite of the bunch!!!!
|I cut these bulbs off of a card that I wanted to recycle. No sentiment on the outside........but, look at the next photo for the inside...........|
|I added the cut out words to the inside for a sentiment!|
