These are my first Christmas cards of 2018. I am striving to get about 5 done a month, on average, to have them ready to send by Thanksgiving. I have found this really works for me! I also used some challenges to complete these cards, but a few of the deadlines passed before I was able to upload this! That always happens to me, does it happen to you? One week is often too short a time period for me!
This stocking stamp is new to me, but I didn’t have a chance to use it last year. It was fun to color in two tones of red. I used a sketch for this first card. The plaid paper is a scrap of a larger piece. I used a trusty edge PUNCH and I always love to use the leftover little snowflakes as embellishments.
This darker stocking is the one I colored first, but it didn’t match the plaid paper well enough, so I made a new card around it. I had the die cut tree paper and die cut circle in my scraps box. The ribbon is recycled from a gift I got. Both of these were fun to make!
