Hello Readers! Sending Christmas cards has been one of those responsibilities that was once a chore… Why is it not a chore now? I make all my own cards of course and what is fun is to lay them all out on the table (they are all different as mass producing is just not my thing). Next I review my list of folks to whom we send cards. I write each name on little sticky notes and then comes the fun – who gets each card? It brings a smile to my face as rarely when I’m making Christmas cards do I think of who is to receive it. Putting those little sticky notes on each card is like a little prayer of thanks for that individual or family. I have to share part of my pile of sticky notes once the cards were addressed – ‘cuz I didn’t think of it until late that this might be a fun thing to share.
Isn’t that a fun pile?
Today’s cards are favorites (well, recent favorites). They are both made with the Christmastime Is Here Suite of products.
The first card is landscape style and begins with a card base of Poppy Parade followed by a layer of Whisper White then the DSP and a strip of Poppy Parade. On top of this is the flower diecut from another piece of the DSP. Isn’t that beautiful? Under it is a different diecut that I simply cut into two pieces to place where I wanted them. The ribbon and additional embellishments are also from the suite. The last thing I did was use Wink of Stella on the flower. Wherever there was a darker shade, I used the Wink of Stella to highlight it. It doesn’t show in the card but it looks really nice.
This second card is portrait style: Thick Whisper White card base, 1 1/2″ strip of DSP from the suite with gold foil on each edge: same lattice style diecut separated, ribbon and embellishments – all from the suite.
