More Christmas Cards for 2011!!!

Yes........I made Christmas cards in March!!!

My goal this year was to make 8 Christmas cards each month leading up to Christmas 2011.....and I did start off rather well with making 12 in January. But, with illness and whatnot, I didn't make any in February.  So, when I saw the following sketch, I knew that this would make cute Christmas cards that would mail easily.

I made 2 versions......Pure Poppy matting and Pine Feather matting.  They both turned out great!

Seven more down for a total of 19 cards made to date.

Here's the sketch that I used from Clean & Simple Sunday.  It was just perfect for a mailable Christmas card.  Since that was something I didn't think about last year, I am definitely focusing on that for this year.

Materials used (all PTI, unless otherwise noted):
Holiday Wishes stamp set
Pure Poppy, Pine Feather and Stamper's Select White cardstock
DCWV patterned paper - Christmas Combo
Colorbox ink - Warm Red & Evergreen
Spellbinders Nestabilities - Scalloped Rectangles

Thanks for taking a look today!

Oh how I am so jealous that you've started on your Christmas cards! I didn't send out any last year because I just didn't get time......and I felt bad because of that too!

I just love your design Stephanie - simple, and kinda card!
