BUT -- I know you aren't all here to listen to me ramble on about my weekend...it's release day at My Time Made Easy, and there's lots of Christmas Spirit already in the air, and all around. I swear the stored start earlier and earlier every year, don't you?? Well, now that Halloween is over, you know that Thanksgiving will be here, lickety split, and then on to "The Most Wonderful Time of the Year" :).
The team is sharing some fabulous card ideas today, ones that are easy to replicate...and here are mine:
Each of these took me very little time to complete, most are one layer, or almost just one layer ;). I don't know about you, but I'm sure that most of the people I send cards to don't keep them. *sniff* While it makes me sad, it's just a matter of reality...so I try to make cards that look nice, but don't take forever to complete.
Dashing Through the Snow...add a little bling, a pop of red (kind of reminiscent of a snowman's scarf, I think) and some snow drifts along the bottom...some glitter...and there's one card!!
Sugar and Spice, and glittered it up with some heat & stick, and dazzling diamonds glitter.
Catherine did a great job with these images in Secret Santa, this bell and bow is too sweet! I embossed both and the sentiment in gold detail powder, doing the bell first, and then the bow, and colored in the bow with my Signo white gel pen. I added a gold border with a paint pen (that started to give out on me on the last line :( )
Lastly - my little gingerbread family...how cute are they?!?!?! These cuties are from The Gingersnaps! This is a small set, PACKED with images!! You will need a craft knife to separate some of them there are so many! I made my family, me, hubster, and the 2 girls...cute, eh? SO quick too -- the longest part was adding the black bead eyes, and the bling bows and buttons.
So, if you've never made your holiday cards, I hope these inspire you to make your own this year, and if you're a seasoned holiday card maker -- I hope this helps get those juices flowing... 'Tis the season!! :)
Thanks for dropping by, be sure to stop by the rest of the team's blogs, we've ALL got something to share today!!!
