Christmas falls on December 25th every year…

 

So why does it sneak up on me every year? Last year I was at  Michael’s craft store and they had these great blank cards on clearance. The plan was to buy  them and have all year to make them into great Christmas cards. I send out about 100 cards so it is no small feat to make them.

Materials

Coredinations paper

vinyl

card blanks

KNK Maxx

Red capped blade

Settings

Speed 400

force 46 for vinyl

90  for Coredinations

IMG_3664 Aren’t they great? Well, fast forward 11 months and here I am, 10 days until Christmas and just starting. Lucky for me, My Scrap Chick sends out a free file every Friday and this file was perfect for me! If you aren’t signed up for their Friday Freebies the files are available for $1 on their site.

IMG_3663 IMG_3662 I used a white textured cardstock for the background, colored Coredinations for the red and green and white and silver vinyl for the Joy with the snowflake and the ornament top.

Then, there was a card that I saw on Pinterest that I thought would be fun to duplicate. IMG_3665 It is just a rectangle with 3 pine trees cut out of it and then you save the 3 trees, emboss them and put them on the card.  The one Pintrest had the pop dots so the trees stood off the paper a bit. I didn’t do this as it increases the cost to mail them. I attached the file for this card. Back to making my cards! Thanks for stopping by and checking out what I made!
