Wow, December 14th and I still don’t have ANY Christmas decorating or baking done for the season.  I’ve been so busy with a couple of college courses but my last exam was on the 12th so now I’ve got to move my butt to get my cards finished and mailed out as well as getting some decorations up so we don’t look like a couple of Scrooges!

I made a couple of cards last night but they were too labour intensive for mass production so tonight I knocked out a couple of cards so I can get at least a handful in the mail tomorrow.  I hope they arrive in time – one’s going to BC so it’s a bit of a gamble!


I’ve only made 2 so far but they didn’t take too long – probably should have resisted the bling as they’ll probably get beat up in the mail but the cards looked too naked without the rhinestones and pearls.

The silhouette is popped up on the card but the rest of the card is fairly flat.  I crumpled up the patterned paper on one and left it perfectly flat on the other.  I prefer the crumpled but the flat one is a nice, crisp card.  Keeping the colours simple helped with the look I was going for.

Must see what else I can whip up tonight – maybe 2 more simple cards (but not the exact same layout…I want my friends and family to get different cards – if I was going to make them all the same I could just buy a box!
