More Christmas Cards


Bill informed me the other day that we needed 20 more cards. The one thing that I have realized about making cards in mass quantities, is that they need to be simple. The reason I say this, is that you will stress yourself out trying to get them made. For my workshop this year, I stuck to this, and my workshop was a success and everyone was happy. I love the fancy cards, but they are so much work unless you do like Sparkle and make a card a week. All of her cards are over-the-top gorgeous. I may have to participate in her challenges next year. But, for now I am happy with my simple cards. For my cards, I used the stamp set Holiday Trinkets by CTMH. And, the paper is Creative Basics.

Lori,
Sinple is beautiful! Sometimes I like the simple cards much better - it's all about the balance and colors. Your cards are just right!

very cute cards! It's been awhile, but we're finally settled now so I can peak in. :) My Christmas card class went well too - we made 10 different cards but I used items from a scrapbooking kit, so everything coordinated, and the ladies just had to put them together following my instructions. They were nice and everyone liked them.

I'm going to participate with Sparkle's challenges next year too - we should do it together! :)

Have a very Merry Christmas!!

These are gorgeous hun! You definitely do need to keep mass production cards simple otherwise you will go bonkers...I totally agree! I need to start my cards now for next year...this year I didn't even do cards b/c I was so busy with school. Awesome work hun!
