Hi fellow crafters. It is almost the end of another year. Tomorrow is Christmas and only a few days left in the year. I can't believe how fast this year has gone. We have had excellent weather in Southern CA. I feel very blessed to have warm weather when others are feeling the cold and lots of snow and/or ice.
I was late getting my Christmas cards sent this year. I couldn't quite seem to get my cards created fast enough. I created 22 cards and sent 40. I had to use store bought cards for a lot of people; but I guess that can't be helped when you have so many people to send to each year. I plan to start earlier for next Christmas. My creativity was very sporadic the past few months due to not feeling well most of the time. I am hoping I will feel better in 2014.
I used the CTMH Frosted Cardmaking Kit to create 15 of my Christmas cards. It is still available until Jan. 31st or while supplies last. It is listed under Shop, under the retiring items at the bottom of the page on the left side on my Close To My Heart website at http://purpleglocreations.ctmh.com. If you are reading this blog after Jan. 1st; be sure to click on the "Join" button for January orders. If it says "Leave"; then it is already clicked. This is how I am able to give free prizes to my customers and followers.
There are three card designs in this Frosted Cardmaking Kit; with 5 of each one; making 15 cards. The cards, envelopes, paper and embellishments are all included. All you need is adhesive and foam if you want to raise the layers. I normally change them up a little; but the last card is the only one I changed. I followed the directions this time. LOL!
5 of 3 different card layouts = 15 cards total
5 Each Of Card #2
I forgot to take the pictures of the set of 5 before mailing them; but this card kit comes with 5 of each of these 3 cards. Also, I changed the Kraft piece of cardstock and used red and embossed it; because I didn't like the Kraft cardstock on this card.
Supplies used to create these cards:
CTMH WOTG Frosted Cardmaking Kit; contains everything except adhesive and foam mounting tape.
I changed the Kraft piece on the Merry & Bright card to a piece of CTMH Ruby cardstock and embossed it with Sizzix Snow Globe embossing folder. (It looks like Holly to me; but that is what it is called.)
