Time To Start On Christmas Cards!


It's never to early to start on your Christmas cards! I know it's hard making Christmas cards when it is 100 degrees or hotter out, but don't put it off or you might end up having to buy some at the last minute like I did last year! When I design my cards for Christmas, the goal is to come up with an attractive design that is easy to mass produce since I make about 100. Of course I get board just making one card over and over so the next few months I will post many different designs, be sure to keep checking back for more ideas.
The Christmas stamp is stamped on Vellum with VersaMark ink and embossed with champagne embossing powder. This is then placed over a panel that has been stamped with the floral design in warm green ColorBox Chalk ink. Next layer this onto dark green paper, tie with ribbon and layer onto red and gold panels. Glue to an ivory card, place corner mount stickers in the two right corners and three red circle stickers on the right side.

Good to get started early. Last year I went to my LSS and the gal had us make 5 of each 3 designs and so you walked out with 15 cards each time. We did this 4 times and voila 60 cards. Pat
