Have you started on your Christmas cards yet? How many are you planning on making?
If you like to make lots and lots of Christmas cards, then you probably like to make ones that are impressive, but fairly quick to make. And if they’re quick to make, they’re probably fairly easy.
But they don’t have to look simple!
We even put a little Wink of Stella on the lights to make them sparkle a bit. It’s a bit hard to see – even in this close up picture – but it’s there!
What’s hard to believe is that we used the same stamp set in yesterday’s Halloween card idea.
Just change up the colors and add some texture from the Big Shot and you’re into a whole new season for cardmaking!
I think we’re going to use this at our Christmas Card Stamp-A-Stack this weekend. If you live locally, you can register here today because the price goes up tomorrow.
They’re going to make 3 different cards. 3 of each one. So now it’s one down and 2 more to go.
You could even make this in non-traditional colors, but I love it in traditional Christmas colors. This time, we used Real Red and Emerald Envy. We added Smoky Slate to the bottom of the blubs. I know it’s just a little thing, but it seemed the right thing to do.
