Hello! Today I have my August Christmas Cards to show you. As most of you already know, I play the Christmas Card Challenge on Splitcoaststampers where we make Christmas Cards all year long so that were not stressed out during the busy Holiday Season. I make four Christmas Cards a month so that I'll have about fifty cards by Christmas Time.
I can't even begin to tell you how hard it was making Christmas Cards during this hot and sultry month. I was actually suppose to start decorating my house for fall yesterday, and I couldn't even bring myself to do it because I was so hot and uncomfortable, and definitely NOT in the mood to decorate for Fall. So I decided since the weather was not cooperating and was behaving very 'non-traditional', that I would make some fun and colorful Christmas Cards using a really cute MFT image and non-traditional Christmas Colors.
I used the same paper and image for all four cards, and I also cut out, glittered, and popped up on dimensionals the light bulbs on each card. The only thing that changes is the layout.
The first card uses a layout from The Deconstructed Sketch (DS108). I cut a sentiment tag using a Spellbinders Nestability Christmas Ornament Die and added a small adhesive crystal to emphasize the meaning.
And here is my final card. It's loosely based on last week's MFT sketch, but I didn't want to add in the final panel over the main image panel, so I don't think it qualifies. I added more sparkly ribbon (gotta love that stuff) and sequins for embellishment.
