Early Christmas Cards
Well, hello! It has been so long since I've posted, I almost forgot how!! I am finally getting around to making a few more Christmas cards. We won't discuss how many more I need to make before I'm finished... We'll just focus on the fact that as of right now, I'm ahead of the game! Hey... It's not Christmas yet, so I must be early, right?!
I had a little crafty time the other day and had initially planned to play with the box full of goodies from the Holiday catalog. However, as I looked through my Pinterest board, I found the sweetest quilt-like card and had to make a few. I had originally pinned this about two years ago and am finally getting around to making it! You can see the original, made by Sandy, here. I changed mine up just a little bit, but the overall design is the same.
I scraped together enough scraps from my almost depleted Ski Slope dsp. There is such a small amount left that I'm feeling this pulling challenge to finish it off this year. We'll see how that goes! I used the triangle shape on the banner punch to make my 'quilt' pieces and then glued them to a piece of copy paper. Then I trimmed the paper and ran it through the square lattice e.f.. The white background was embossed with the snow burst e.f. I used Teeny Tiny Wishes for the Merry Christmas and Deck the Halls is from the new Happy Scenes. A little distressing with chocolate chip ink and a few candy dots and we're done!
I am hoping to back here soon with more Christmas cards and maybe even a scrapbook page or two. Wish me luck and have a fantastic day! Thanks so much for visiting!!
