Hi all!! My posts have been sparse during this holiday season. So much to do, and so little time to do it! I am sure everyone knows what I am referring to. I wanted to share with you another Christmas card I made. We are one week away from celebrating Jesus' birth, and I honestly I am trying to get in the true meaning of what Christmas is, but it is being masked by having to tend with work, buying presents ( with lack of funds I might add), paying bills, etc.....I know they are all excuses, but I speak the truth! :) Nonetheless, I have made several Christmas cards this year, and have sent some, and personally given some. I think all that have received one is appreciative. This one was given to my nail tech. She does a great job tending to my nails every 2 to 3 weeks, and I wanted her card to be special.
The stamp I used and embossed in gold is from Hero Arts. I added some gems to make the "strings" come alive, and added some self adhesive trim I purchased at Hobby Lobby a few months back. She loved it! :)
Here are a couple of others I made and sent or gave to someone....
My hubby is always telling me that I should do cards during the holidays that are the same, that I don't always have to make different ones, but you know I did do that too, but I also want to give "special" ones too. He is supportive either way it goes :)
Before I go, I wanted to share with you all that I received my Gina K. Designs cards back from the card swap I was involved in. A month ago I share with you the cards I made, and now I wanted you to see what cards I received back. The hostess gets to keep 1 card from each "spot" - so she kept 3 of mine since I signed up for 3 spots, and one of the cards is displayed at work. It folds into a "Christmas Tree", so that one is not pictured, but here are the rest...
Ok - that is all from me this evening. I will try to post once more before Christmas, but if I don't Merry Christmas to all my followers, and readers. I appreciate you all, and interested in seeing my projects that I create. All of YOU inspire ME!! :)
kari those are beautiful! i love making individual cards too, making just one over and over isnt as fun!!! I love the little christmas lights the best :) best of luck getting through the season, and have a very merry christmas!ReplyDelete
