My sister, mother and I get together every year and make our Christmas cards together. Each of us comes up with a few designs and then we get "kits" ready for each design and write up simple instructions. We then all make 3 cards of all designs. It's a great way to have a good variety of cards. Here are some we did and I would love to see Chrismas cards others have done also!
They're all great but the first one by your sister I think is awesome. I love how the cuts are made so it can be displayed so nicely and easily. It looks like some pretty heavy stock was used for it giving it.....I dunno...'presence'?
Don't be discouraged because there isn't a lot of posting yet! They will come
WOW! your cards are lovely sjweld.
Love the santa suit / package card.
Nice to have some company in the card making catagory.
I haven't quite caught onto your sister's card design yet. Hopefully someday I will give it a try.
I have done some and I was making it harder then it actually was.
Sometimes it's good just to step away for awhile and come back and then things just seem to fall into place.
Great looking cards by the way.
And another. This design was one that my Stampin' Up representative had us make at a class the year before. My change was mainly to heat emboss all the stamped images. I emboss most everything because I want to avoid smearing if it gets wet.
Basically you cut out a doughnut of cardstock and stick on punched snowflakes. In the video the wreath was hole punched and a ribbon hanger inserted in the hole. Instead of doing that I cut out TWO doughnuts and glued the ends of silver cord in between them, making a loop hanger. I decided to make it only one-sided and put it on a card, hiding the loop hanger in back of the wreath so the wreath could be removed from the card and hung on the tree. I also used glitter markers instead of the Stickles used in the video, as well as circles of silver paint pen instead of rhinestones.
Again, taking someone else's idea and tweak, tweak, tweak.
All great Christmas cards. Wonderful inspiration here.
NisiNJ, like how you had done the snowflake card. very pretty.
Got me to thinking that I should be starting in getting my Christmas cards made. That time will be here before we know it.
