Hi, there...get ready to bust out your card making supplies.
I decided not to get in that pre-holiday frantic rush this year by trying to decide on the perfect cards now. So I sat down, sketched out an idea and began creating. It really wasn't that hard, actually, using the All Through The Year Super Paper Pad. Every holiday has several coordinating papers in this Paper Pad, so you could craft for an hour and probably have enough cards for the next year using this one simple design.
You can see that some of the cards have a large circle cut through the top layer so that you can see the sentiment that's mounted on the inside of the card.
Because these were such fun papers, I decided to go the non-traditional route and use cardstock colors that one does not generally use for Christmas cards...pumpkin, aqua, periwinkle and pink. Plus, I thought it would be fun for Isabella and Victoria to have some fun cards to give to their friends in school, if they wanted.
And it's always nice to have a few cards on hand that don't specifically say Christmas for friends that are of other religious beliefs, so make a few of those as well.
And it never hurts to have a Thank You card, or twenty, on hand! It would make your Mama proud.
May there be lots of jingle bells and hot cocoa in your very near future. Happy card making my friends.
