This year I have a goal of making enough Christmas cards throughout the year to be able to participate in a holiday craft fair. If not, at least make enough to send to everyone on my list without having to stress in December. Fingers crossed!
Every year I try and make a card that is a blue Christmas card that may be a bit more of a personal card. This is the one this year that is that card. It might seem simple, but I see so many little things that feel that they make my heart happy in this simple card that it is my happy card this year.
Wow, did this card take a lot of work! I am not sure that I am all that happy with it, but there was definitely a point of no return when I realized how many hours had been spent already. I don’t hate it, I just don’t love it, and I wanted to love it a lot more after spending so much time working on it. Why does it work that way?
It took me awhile to figure out how to make this card and I didn’t make the deadline to actually submit this card to the challenge that the sketch the card is based on came from. I totally forgot that I had these letter stamps that were given to me by a wonderful friend when I was first starting out. I have no idea what company made them because I didn’t realize that I would need that info later on so I didn’t save it.
This card took a little bit of trial and error to get right but I think it was so worth it! Sometimes I have an idea that something can work I just am not exactly sure how to go about making it happen, and this was one of those times. I am glad that I didn’t get frustrated the first time it failed but realized what went wrong and how to fix it.
