I make Christmas cards for a family friend. She needs about 25 cards. I truly do not enjoy making that many cards of one design, so I normally do about 4 each of 7 designs (that means she has a couple extras just in case).
My main goal for the cards I make for her is that they be easily mailable (i.e., flat). I have a hard time with flat – I always want to add at least a bow…but I love all seven designs. This week I’ll be showing off those cards.
These first two designs I’m showing here are actually re-makes of cards I created before.
First up is a card using StampinUp’s Tree Trimming set. I love this forest green and gold combination that I used in the previous card (see if here). This time around I chose to leave off the sentiment panel and just emboss it directly on the card base (much less distracting).
I must say embossing is so much easier with good quality, fresh powder!
My other re-make is a favorite of mine (view the original). I only changed the colors – but I love this new color scheme and that is why I’m sharing it. This time around I used Aqua Mist and Lavender Moon.
Stop by again all week to see more Christmas cards.
Thanks for taking a peek!
