My Christmas Cards are Done

Hi stamping friends!

Are you still rushing to get your Christmas cards made?  I finished all of mine, but find myself rushing around sewing and creating crafting projects for 25 of my coworkers.  I’m also in a “Christmas” themed swap that has me creating nine squares.  Eight are mailed and I keep one for myself. Got all of my diecuts cut out and in 20 individual baggies (I’m a gluten for punishment and am making extras to place on tags for Christmas presents).   Today I am going to my girlfriend’s house where I will be gluing all the miniature pieces together.  Pictures to follow.

The theme for the second swap, due the first week of January, is “winter” and boy do I have a wonderful idea for them.  So exciting.

Did some Christmas baking with my girlfriend already, and today I need to do some baking for Al.  He saw all of my baking supplies sitting out in a box and asked if I can bake him a cake with icing since I have all of my baking supplies out.

All of this in between working full time.  LOL.

Today I’m sharing one of forty-five Christmas cards I made.  Thankfully, I love to heat emboss because it took quite a few hours, over the course of three months.  For the first time, I went with a slim line card, inspired by Gina K.  After Gina K’s Holiday Tapestry stamp set arrived 1 1/2 years ago, I finally used it on this year’s cards.  I love rich colours and here I used SU Cherry Cobbler with fine detailed gold embossing powder.

Have a great week!  Thanks for stopping by!

Pretty card, Bethie. It feels good when you’re finished, doesn’t it? I’m still gonna make a few more but had mine done in October. Now the challenge Christmas themes are making me feel left out, haha. Oh well, glad I’m not panicking right now. Hey, take care of yourself and don’t get over-committed/stressed. You can UNcommit at any time, HUGS XOX
