Getting ready to take a vacation is a lot of hard work. I will be leaving for a nine day trip to Colorado soon (sorry burglars, but my house will not be vacant, I have a house sitter) and the preparation before and after a trip is a lot of work and almost requires another vacation from my vacation! One of the things on my "Must Do Before I Leave List", is to make my May Christmas Cards. As most of you already know, I play the Splitcoaststampers Christmas Card Challenge where we make Christmas Cards all year long so that were not stressed out during the busy Holiday Season. I make five cards a month so I will have about sixty cards at the end of the year. I make a long card, 4 x 8, so I can put a Christmas Letter and Photo Collage inside.
Because I was pressed for time this month, I tried to keep it as simple as possible and chose to use some pre-printed Pure Innocence Digis that I had already laying on my craft desk. All I had to do was cut them out, color, and create a layout for them. Here is what I came up with:
For my last style of card, I added a different retired Stampin Up! sentiment and cut it out with a coordinating Stampin Up! punch. I attached it to the image panel with a brad. I put red and gold Stickles on the Christmas Tree.
Have a great day! Amy
