I have a quick post for today because I want to share a set of cards I created (and am creating more of). Not sure how it happens that I’m behind on making cards given that I started in August. But here we are. So I’m pulling out the Misti and putting the sweet elves (translated kids) to work and cranking out some cards. In bulk. Which I never really do. Did I mention that the Misti makes it possible?? My 10 yo was die cutting with the Stitched Rectangles and then stamping when he commented how he was impressed with his CPM rate (that would be cards per minute). Yep. He made 12 while I made 1/2 card (on another project). And everyone single one was perfect. When I get home from this trip, I have them all ready to finish into final cards. These were his model and we liked them enough to make more.
The key is this pretty wreath. I got it on sale from Newton’s Nook over the Thanksgiving holiday and what a good get! The set is called Happy Little Thoughts and it has such pretty elements. This wreath though….I just knew it would be great for my Christmas cards and I was right! I colored some Basic Rhinestones with a Copic and added them on along with a twine bow. The sentiment is from the retired Santa’s Gifts (SU). All the stamping was done in Early Espresso onto Crumb Cake card stock.
Ok….like I said. Quick post but I thought you might like a great last minute, I’m really late getting my cards done idea. *smile* Hope your day is fantastic! Back tomorrow with the latest from Freshly Made Sketches!
