Collection of Festive Christmas Cards
Jennifer Snyder here to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and Happy Holiday Season. I'm sharing the last of my Christmas cards today, and proud of myself for mailing EVERY card BEFORE Christmas. I do believe it's the first time ever. I'm typically an after Christmas mailer.
Why was this year different?
Authentique's "A Magical Christmas" Collection - 6 x 6 Paper Pad Bundle helped motivate and inspire me to keep crafting.
I had help from a few products to make each card unique - using various dies from my stash and a few newer ones from Spellbinders: Joy Holiday Die 2019 and Spellbinders Holly Jolly Christmas from A Charming Christmas Collection by Becca Feeken. The sled die is very old Memory Box die but a delightful one to use.
What I especially loved about the Magical Christmas" - 6 x 6 Paper Pad were the tiny prints which were perfect for the background in the "Joy" die cut - creating a beautiful, graceful card.
Next up - the Nativity Creche card. The Authentique papers are so striking with the red and gold foil cardstock combo. The Nativity Creche die is another very old die from my stash. I have to say, I'm obsessed with that black poinsettia print on this card.
The last card of the season was created for a young niece who enjoys frosty outdoor activities in winter. I also enjoyed sledding BUT these days it's more of a thrill to watch her sled. I can imagine the face plant in the snow as I'm crafting.
Sort of like the old saying, " those who can, do. Those who can't, craft".
Well, something like that.
I'm a fan of peppermint stiped paper and the combo with the red snowflake paper makes for a fun card with the hint of a peppermint white Christmas.
Thank you for stopping here today. May your entire Christmas/ Holiday season be filled with crafty joy.
