Hi friends! Is everyone ready for the holidays or getting a bit frantic like me in squeezing in enough time to make cards and everything else? I always promise myself to start earlier to avoid the last minute crunch, but it never seems to work that way. I think my New Year's resolution will be to make one Christmas card a month so I at least have some on hand.
First up today is a Christmas tag that I needed to put together quickly to get in the mail last week. I began with a premade Martha Stewart tag and just embellished it.
All things used have been sitting in my stash for quite awhile. The Noel stickers are from Jolee's, the rosette is from K&Co, and the star and rhinestones are from Michael's. I used some red Stickles on the holly berries and added some ribbon and baker's twine to the top.
Next up are two cards that I needed to be flat enough for mailing internationally to cut down on the cost. Both cards use a beautiful Sizzix die sentiment as the focal point. The first card is made from an older line of K&Co glittered papers. The snowflake stickers are Jolee's and the bird sticker is K&Co. A piece of lace trim and Recollections silver and white twine finishes it off.
The last card was made with paper from The Paper Studio's Old World Winter line (love it). I just added some red trim, rhinestones and stars as accents.
These two cards really came together quickly and were good for mailing without being bulky. I do, however, love more dimension and frills on my cards!
Well, I better get back to crafting. Time is running out! I've been working on diecuts and glitter this weekend and having so much fun. Thank you so much for stopping by at this busy time of year. I appreciate the nice comments you leave. Have a wonderful week ahead!
