Each year I make between 60 and 80 Christmas cards to send out. I love making them and sending them. I usually make 5-7 sets of 12 cards. I try to make one set each month starting in May or June. Well, I am on my way! Some months it just doesn’t happen, and then I scramble near the end. They always get done though! 🙂
This is a fairly simple card, but I think it works. The stamps are huge, but they are sure fun to use! This set was gifted to me from a friend that went to a Stampin’ Up! party, but never got into scrapbooking or making cards. Yay me!
I used the Stamp-a-ma-jig to line up the pine cone with the branch. It took me a bit to figure out how to position the branch so there was enough room for the pine cone as well. I ran the card stock through the Big Shot with the Top Note die prior to stamping. Those bigger stamps sometimes don’t give me the best images. I am thankful we can usually flip the piece over and use the other side! 🙂
