Christmas Cards

Well, it’s officially Christmas season, at least now until the end of October. When I make cards for Operation Write Home, the Christmas cards are due in by the October 31. So I have a few made. Actually, I only make a few different ones, then I mass produce them. That way, I can make the most of my time. So here are the first two:

Red Christmas Ornament

This one I definitely cased from Andrea Walford’s site. She has a video that takes you step by step how to make it.

Merry Christmas Poinsettia

To make this card, I used the Season of Joy stamp set by SU! and also the five petal punch. I punched out 2 red flowers and one green. I scored the red flowers and folded it slightly to give it some definition. I used the Boho Blossom punch to create the little red and white flower in the middle, and attached it to the card with a rhinestone brad.

Hello Everyone,

 

Christmas cards were due in at the beginning of the month, but I couldn’t resist making one more.  But now I’ve started to make Birthday cards.  Of course, people have birthdays even in December, so there is always a need for these.  Anyway, I took a design that I used for Christmas and made it into a birthday card–here’s a comparison.  Hope you like them!

Finally, the Christmas cards for OperationWriteHome are due to be mailed this weekend, so I’m winding down  on making these.  I did some very simple ones the last few days, with the goal being quantity as opposed to my usual outstanding quality!!  Here are a few of them, and you’ll probably agree, they are very simple:

Hi Everyone,

I am spending this last week of October finishing up Christmas cards for the military people who are deployed around the world.  This organization is now OperationWrite Home (they just changed their name from cardsforheroes.)  Last week I sent a box of 132 cards that my students made on their lunch hour, and this week I’m working at filling up another box and getting it mailed by Saturday morning.  So I really haven’t spent much time with new designs, just making lots and lots of my tried and true designs.  But here is a  card that I scrap lifted from a video on YouTube.

Here is a card using the exact same layout, but this time I used Apricot Appeal ink and tried to give it a look of fall.  It’s amanzing how different it looks:

It sure seems early to be thinking Christmas already, but once I got started making a few cards, I managed to get in the mood–even though it’s still summer. Here are a few that I made so far:
