Today we are two weeks from Thanksgiving and then Christmas Season is here!!! December always seems to pass so quickly, so this year I am deeming these next two weeks my Christmas Card Make-A-Thon!
The goal is to be finished with my Christmas cards before December 1st. What?! I know. Part of the reason is because I am expecting the arrival of a new baby girl (!) somewhere in the neighborhood of December 3rd. You can see the benefit to having my cards done in advance!
This year, to streamline the process a bit, I’ll be making use of Hot Off The Press’ Winter Wishes and Merry & Bright Artful Card Kits (ACK)! These holiday card making kits include coordinating papers plus lots of die-cuts and cut-outs. They also have a slightly more modern feel than those from Hunkydory. And now through Sunday, these Artful Card Kits are on sale for only $7.99 (regular retail $9.99)!
I feel like I’ve shared quite a few project ideas using Winter Wishes, but I don’t want to overlook our other new ACK, Merry & Bright!
Here is one more card that LeNae created, this time using the Winter Wishes ACK. I really like the simplicity of this card, as well as the contrast. I really, really like the idea of being able to easily create a number of vibrant and unique cards from a set of papers and die-cuts. The die-cuts make gorgeous embellishments on their own (foam tape is your friend), or if time allows you can add extra ribbon or whatever you choose!
