You know, it has been rather difficult for me to sit down and craft - work and school do not mix with my limited "time" for some reason. Well, I did try to craft holiday cards but didn't get too far. This is what I started out with:
This looks like paper but these are cards - decorated paper by DCWV (I believe) and envelopes were included. They were about $10 for a set of 40. I picked this set because I knew I had a supply of holiday accessories to add that would match the color scheme.
These buttons were on sale, buy two, get one free (at JoAnn's). I was surprised to find so many! The ribbon was 50% off - what a deal!
These tags work well as centerpieces and they matched the "antique", non-traditional Christmas colors. Here is one of the cards I came up with:
I found some coordinating paper to mat my Santa tag on, added the "Merry Christmas" ribbon and a tag that I had purchased from a friend from the UK who was selling them at the time.
This is the inside of the card. The fence punch by Martha Stewart came from my good friend, Sandra, who lives in the UK, which is freezing this time of year. Brrrr!! ;-) Isn't Rudolph cute?
Well, stay tuned and I'll try to remember to come back and show you the other three cards I made.
