More Christmas Cards

I made an assembly line for these, and made several - that's really my favorite way to do Christmas cards.

I started out with some more awesome Basic Grey Figgy Pudding paper - I just used one sheet, and used one side for my backgrounds, and the other side for my scalloped ovals. I love using my Cuttlebug for things like the scalloped ovals - it makes it go so much faster.

I added some sparkle to the background with silver Stickles, and used Papertrey's Ocean Tides swiss dot ribbon for the middle. It ties in really well with the Basic Grey colors. Originally, I had this same Merry Christmas stamp (the same one I used on the last card) done all in glitter, but you couldn't read it. So I put the smaller white scallop on top, with the stamp done in Ocean Tides ink, and clear glitter covering the whole thing, so it looks like snow. I think it looks cuter now than when I'd envisioned the original.

reading your line about assembly line made me think of the wedding invitation sweatshop we had in my kitchen. Have thanked you for that lately? If not Thanks! You are the awesome.

I'd forgotten about that! That was fun. Maybe next year I'll do a big Christmas-card assembly line party - making, stuffing, addressing, signing, whatever people need to do. That could be really fun.
