Christmas Cards 2012: Pinterest-Inspired Cards

I'm dwindling down to my last few posts featuring Christmas cards that I created this year.  In case you're just tuning in, I created about 35 (or so) Christmas cards this year, which is quite a feat for me!  I'm very proud of how many I made it to this year and will very much enjoy sharing handmade cards with some of my family and friends.

Today, I am featuring some Pinterest-inspired cards.  Pinterest is a great place for inspiration!  A few months ago, I was opposed to joining Pinterest simply because I did not want another account that I had to "check" on a regular basis.  But I quickly realized that this is not the case.  You can go onto your account and pin things as much as you'd like, or once a month.  I choose to go on about once a week if I have time.  Pinterest was a great place for me to search for some Christmas card inspiration when I began losing ideas.  So, here are some cards I created using Pinterest-inspired cards.

Card measures 6 1/2 x5.  Products used: Patterned paper: scraps (not sure on the brand), star die cut: scrap (not sure on the brand), snowflake sticker: Recollections, other: decorative scissors, ric-rac ribbon; "Be Merry & Bright" stamp: (will update later).

This card was inspired by this card on Pinterest.

I really enjoyed making these Pinterest-inspired cards.  I'm pretty sure the first card above is my favorite so far this year.  That card is going to a very special friend who has helped Alex and I so much throughout this entire year.  I really can't wait to see what she thinks.

Christmas is just around the corner, so I will have 2 more Christmas Cards posts and then its time to move on.  Hope you're enjoying the holiday season thus far!


PS: We're supposed to get snow today.  The first of the season!
