October Christmas Cards

 Hello!  I'm still catching up on my Christmas Cards.  No, I haven't even mailed them yet.  Or even addressed them for that matter.  If you read THIS POST, it will catch you up on my desperate situation.

As most of you already know, I play the Christmas Card Challenge on Splitcoaststampers.  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 about sixty Christmas Cards at the end of the year.  I did fall behind on my cards this year, so now I'm trying to play catch up.  I only have five more cards to complete my end of the year goal.

I made five of this card.  I make 4 x 8 Christmas Cards so that I can fit a Christmas Letter and a photo card inside.   I try to keep Christmas Cards simple so that they are easy to mass produce, and to also keep layers minimal so that they are more mailable.
 To make my card I used an image from Penny Black and some snowflakes from another set.  I thought this was the perfect image to use for a long layout.  I used Liquid Applique for snow, and I put yellow Stickles in the flame and Frosted Lace Stickles in the center of each snowflake.
 The image was colored with Copic Markers, and the card stock color is Almost Amethyst by Stampin Up!
Now I'm off to finish my November cards!

Have a great day!  Amy
