Christmas Card Time! #1

I went to a crop at my friend Kelly's house some weeks ago. I didn't have my scrapbook stuff kitted, ready to go, so I opted to bring supplies to make Christmas cards instead. Here is what I made in one day!

I made quite a few cards, so I am not going to try to squeeze them all in one blog post. I will share a few at a time, so that you will have a reason to come visit here, since I haven't been very good about finishing layouts these days. 

So here we go. 

Most of these cards are using supplies from SEI's Christmas Mint Collection that I have had in my stash for quite a while. I had used some of this on some PL layouts from 2012, but the kits from SEI are huge and even after all of these cards, I still have quite a bit left!

The card bases come from boxed sets from Michaels. Bought a bunch when they were $5.

For this first set of cards, I kept it simple and used some epoxy present stickers and used Ali Edwards'  Hello Santa Banners for the sentiment.

For these next two cards, I used some foiled chipboard shapes that I tied some bows for from twine. Both of these cards use another Ali Edwards' stamp set from Technique Tuesday. The first I stamped with Stampin' Up ink, the second I heat embossed with white powder.

For these two cards, I found two frames in the die cut pack from the SEI collection. I stamped the "Joy" sentiment from the December Daily Kit from Ali Edwards from 2013.  Using twine, I hung tags from the frames for the finishing touch.

More cards to show soon!

Started on my December Daily and hope to have a few layouts to share today or tomorrow.

Hope you are enjoying the start to your holiday season!

  1. Nice. They turned out really nice. We should have more mini crops at my place more often.
