Christmas Cards 2012: Religious Cards

Here is my first of several posts sharing Christmas cards I have created for this year.  If you read my post from Tuesday (you can see it here), then you know that this year, I am taking my goal of making my own Christmas cards and running away with it!  So far this year, I am up to 33 cards!!!  That is huge for me since last year I think I made it to....oh about 20 or so....and gave up because I just got sick of looking at them, haha.  This year though, has been different.  Alot of the cards are simple, but when you're mass-creating, I think that's how they need to be.  Also, I used tons and tons of scraps (which is part of the reason I wanted to create my own cards this year), so I will try my best to share what products I used, but might not know.  Well, here we go!

Card measures 8x4.  Inside reads "And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger."  Products used: patterned paper: Recollections, sticker (cross): Recollections, cardstock, gold ribbon (it's a little hard to see), punch: Martha Stewart

Card measures 8x4.  Inside reads "Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will towards men."  Products used: patterned paper: Recollections, sticker (cross): Recollections, gold ribbon (it's a little hard to see), square die cuts: received in a swap.

Card measures 8x4.  Inside reads "For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, which is Christ the Lord." Products used: patterned paper: Recollections, sticker (cross): Recollections, gold ribbon (it's a little hard to see), cardstock, punch: Fiskars corner punch

Card measures 4x8.  Inside has quote from Isiah 9:6 ("For unto us, a child is born").  Products used: patterned paper: Recollections, sticker (cross): Recollections, die cut border: K&Company (?), punch: Fiskars corner punch

Card measures 4x8 inches.  Inside reads: "The Nativity."  Products used: patterned paper: Recollections, sticker (nativity scene): Recollections, ribbon: received in a swap, cardstock, punch: Fiskars corner punch
Alex and I may not practice a religion, but most of our family is Catholic and believe in the true meaning of Christmas.  So, I really wanted to create religious cards to help them celebrate this season.  These were the first cards I created this season, and I'm glad I created them first.  I wanted to create them last year, but really struggled with how to create religious cards, so I thought it best to keep them simple so the focus stayed on the 'message' of the card.

Thanks for stopping by!  More soon!

  1. These are absolutely beautiful! I have many of the same products but hadn't thought to combine them as you have. I love the messages inside too. Can't wait to see more!
