Hello! I took a Staycation this week because all my 'kids' were home at once to visit, so I actually have my Christmas Cards done on time this month. Normally I'm struggling to finish them on the last day of every month to meet the deadline, but because of my week Staycation at home, I was able to play in my craft room and got a lot accomplished. 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 Christmas Cards a month so that I'll have about sixty cards at the end of the year. I make a long style card so that I can fit a photo collage and Christmas letter inside the card. I also usually try to keep them to one or two layers so that they are more mailable, but every now and then, I break the rule and make them lumpy. This month I definitely broke the rule because I used 3D dimensional stickers by The Paper House.
All the stickers are from one package, and I still have a few sentiment stickers left over. I really got my money's worth on this set!
My first card uses just one of the sentiment stickers. All the paper is very old DCWV Holiday Stacks or My Mind's Eye, and most of it is pre-glittered in some way. I love sheer ribbon because you can still see the designer paper underneath. I inked the edges of two of the panels with Chocolate Chip ink, and added two small pearls for embellishment.
Because they are bulky cards, these will be the cards I hand deliver to our church family mailboxes.
Have a great day! Amy
