(Giveaway ends on Saturday!)
Although our family doesn't send out Christmas cards to a long list of family and friends each year, I do like to have some cards on hand for Eric's coworkers, our neighbors, and to attach to gifts.
A few days ago, I took a break from the 27,853 items on my to-do list, and just made some cards - because I WANTED to. I collected up a pile of October Afternoon paper. A few of the sheets are from one of their holiday collections, but some of them are not - and I love that! I also had one sheet of OA Christmas stickers, and my new Christmas stamp set from Paper Smooches, that I was super excited to ink up!! (Kim's sentiment stamps are just SO FUN fun to play with!)
So here's what I came up with. I put together about 8 cards that night, and felt like I accomplished a lot! I love putting together patterned papers and using up some serious stash! If you still have a few cards you need to throw together, I hope this will inspire you! All of these cards follow the same basic formula. I just adjusted each one depending on the sentiment I wanted to use, and how it coordinated with the patterned paper. (For instance, on darker or busier patterned papers, I matted and mounted my sentiment on a separate block of cardstock.)
Merry Christmas!!!! xoxo
