March Christmas Cards

Hello! As most of you know already, I participate in the Splitcoaststampers Christmas Card Challenge. Every month I make four Christmas Cards, so I'm not stressed out in November trying to get 50 or 60 cards made. It is really hard to stay committed to this challenge; especially in the Spring when there is so much outside work to do, and the weather is so beautiful; the last thing I want to do is make Christmas Cards. But I'm always happy I did when November rolls around.

To make it even simpler on myself, I often 'case' my Christmas Cards. This first one I cased from Jodi Collins. I used her layout and ornament ideas, but changed the paper, sentiment, and ornament dies. The 'December 25th' embellishment is a sticker from K & Company. The paper is DCWV 'The Christmas MatStack'. My second card uses a sketch by Silke Ledlow (FTTC147). It's the same paper as the one above.

This card I cased from Amy Scheffer. Again, I used the same layout, and just changed the image and papers. The stamp set is retired Stampin Up! 'The World Over', and the paper is Papertrey Ink 'Rustic Snowflakes'

And here is one I came up with on my own. That's why it is so clean and simple! The image is retired Stampin Up! 'Window on the World'. The charm is from JoAnn's Fabrics and Crafts. The paper is DCWV 'The Christmas Matstack'. I put Stickles on the ornament.

Have a great day! Amy
