Hello Ladies! We are 1/2 way there :) to Friday that is! & another day closer to Thanksgiving & Christmas :0 Before we all know it, we will be thinking about hearts for Valentine's Day! LOL My girlfriend who works at a LSS notified me this morning that Valentine's paper has ALREADY arrived & is on the shelves! Personally, I would like to ENJOY Thanksgiving & Christmas for as long as I can.... After all, I just received an order of Christmas stamps & more are on the way :) If you visit often, you know I work in an Operating Room & have a lot of co-workers. We are like a BIG family. I can't afford to purchase everyone a gift so, I make them each a HOMESPUN card with lots of love :) With that thought in mind, I wanted to create a card that I could easily "mass produce". LOL I would love to know if you "mass produce" your Christmas/Holiday cards or do you make a "few" & purchase the rest? Be Sweet!
Here is my "Deck The Halls" card:
I really liked the soft, sweet look of the Making Memories DP. I didn't want to hide all that goodness on the paper, so I made a lil' tag to accent the Holly leafs & berries as well as the sentiment.
After inking up the PTI Holly leaf images with SU Glorious Green & stamping, I used a super sharp scissors to cut out the leafs to piece them on the tag. I gave the tag & perimeter of the card a soft- vintagey look by inking up a sponge dauber with Ranger/Tim Holtz Antique Photo ink & gently applying to the edges.
These are all the "pieces" for my cards. Being the CRAZY stamper that I am, I think this picture is sooo YUMMY looking :) All those buttons, brads, tags ....
Here are most of the supplies I used to make these Deck The Halls cards. YUMMY toys :)
