Christmas Cards Made Easy

I love hand made Christmas cards!  And I love having them done in advance of the holidays even more!

But sometimes, October and November are just as busy as December. I know this will be an issue for our family as we're signed up for a season of outdoor team sports this fall for the first time ever.  ((What was I thinking???))

But breathe.  These cards are amazing and so easy to assemble!  They beautiful just the way that Close to My Heart designed them.  But of course, I had to make them sparkle and shine just a bit more.



Introducing the Cut Above Merry Everything Card Kit.  In real life they aren't as washed out as the image in the kit but they're not quite as dark as they photo of my finished card.  They're much more balanced.


It contains the envelopes, pre-printed card base (saves you on bulkiness of your project) and ready to stamp circle with a gold foil outline.  

I added Bitty Sparkles, our amazingly brillianlt 2.5mm gems, and the new Bronze Sequins.
These packages of bling should be enough to embellish 2 packages of our 10 card kits just fine.

I used the Mistletoe Kisses stamp set M1182 with our new warm Nutmeg Brown ink to complement some of the stems in the greenery.  
 
Don't forget the Thin 3D Foam tape. It adds the perfect dimension without bulk to cards.  And it's Postmaster friendly for mailing!  

Want to come hang out and make these cards in October?  Place your order (or call me with your order) and bring them to one of my events.  I have events on Sunday, October 1, 2017 or Saturday evening of October 14, 2017.  You can find all of my Crafter Afternoon or Christmas Card evens on my Facebook Events page.  

(More card kits are coming!)
