Hello and welcome to Keeping Christmas September, a blog hop of
holiday cards and projects to inspire you to get going on your
I have a trio of cards today, so let's take a look.
There's a list of designer friends at the end of this post, so you
can hop along.
It's been a while since I've used Betsy's Make It Market:
Fairy Tale Christmas.
The year it was released, I must have made a dozen cards. She included
designer papers with the kit, along with stamps, dies, cutouts, stencils,
even elements to create fairy tale books and projects that light up! For my cards today, I used the enclosed
stencils, stamps and die cut outs.
The corner dies are the sweetest! I set up an assembly line and turned up
the Christmas music (Pandora) on the computer.
3 cards with the same layout moves along quickly, and is a wonderfully
relaxing way to spend a day in the craft room!
Slight differences like color variation on the holly, and where the
side sprigs were placed were really the only differences.
And... matching envelopes, something I'm trying to do with all the cards I
make. Makes it so easy when they're ready to send.
I usually send out Christmas cards on or around the 10th of December.
How are you doing with your holiday card making? No pressure, but,
only 2 more months of keeping Christmas inspiration.
