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 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!
