I cased this card from Dawn on SCS. DH really liked this one but it turned out to be my least favorite. The glitter really helped it and it is prettier in person than in the photo, although hers is pretty in the photo too, which is why I tried it.

Next year I have to start on cards in October! Especially when I have trouble making up my mind. It’s easier to stick with one design when you need to make large a quantity of cards. I tell myself that every year, so I guess this is just one more resolution that probably won’t be kept!

This is card #3, a variation on the second, also made with Watercolor Winter and in all the same colors. I really like this set, too bad it’s going away.

Here’s the second of four cards I made for Christmas. I just couldn’t decide this year! All four were made using the Watercolor Winter set, which is only available through January 2. It’s my favorite Christmas set from the holiday mini. This one features the pine branch and pine cone stamps. It’s on a base of Crumb Cake, with a mat of Always Artichoke. I used punches for the sentiment, which is from Teeny Tiny Wishes. If you click on the card, you might be able to see the glitter on the pine cones and needles. This card looks better in person. And I only made one!

My Christmas card, made with Wisteria Wonder and Concord Crush. The stamp set, The Sounding Joy, is from the holiday mini. The background is embossed with the Finial Press embossing folder and I punched the stars with the retired star punches out of silver glimmer paper, also from the holiday mini. I made 108 of them! Not traditional colors, but easy to put together and quite nice if I say so myself. The hardest part was addressing so many and writing notes in each one.

Merry Christmas!
