April Christmas Cards

Hello!  Today I have my April Christmas Cards to show you.  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 that I will have over fifty at the end of the year.  I make a long style card (4 1/4 by 8 1/4) so that I can fit a photo card inside along with a Christmas letter.  To keep it easy on myself, I pick one layout and make five cards using that same layout.

This month I used the same layout and main image on all five of my cards, but I didn't have enough of the same designer paper to use on all my cards, so I switched that up a bit.

Here is my first card:  The snowflake is a Sizzix die which I covered in glittered.  All the sentiments were cut from a single sheet of designer paper.  All the designer paper is from DCWV (very old).  I used ribbon and old embellies from my stash to finish off the cards.  An MFT die was used to cut the banner beneath the sentiment.

 The little red and green embellies in the center of the snowflakes were found in the dollar bins of JoAnn Fabrics and Crafts a year or two ago.  They always have such fun and inexpensive things in their bins….it pays to dig!

 When I ran out of my glittery snowflake paper, I switched to this brown and white polka dotted one.  I used red and white ribbon behind my sentiment, and added a felt heart button, brown twine, and red and green ribbon for embellishment.  The little white dots you see on all the cards are adhesive dome crystals.

 And here is a group shot!
Have a great day!  Amy
