Making my Christmas cards


Making the cards for my Christmas list is one of the highlights of my paper crafting year. That is what I first started doing so many years ago in Spain, that is what is a non negational thing: I don't send any Christmas card that I haven't done myself. However I tend to wait for the last minute before I make them because I always wait to see all the new products out there.


On Saturday I started to make the bulk of them. I apply to myself few rules, the most important one use whatever cardstock I already have. I allow myself to buy stamps and dies, but I safe the money on the cardstock department.


This is one of the cards I did. Using leftovers in papers (Jovial, from Basic Grey) and card, doing some patchwork and then the message from Large Christmas and Filled with Flowers.

I bought a whole load of new stash from Sir stampalot after seeing your samples! Three sets of your stamps just fell into my basket. Thanks for the inspiration - now I can start my Christmas cards!
