When I saw that part of the Christmas challenge this month was hat I knew this Santa was the guy for the job. I think a big part of the reason I fell in love with him was the amazing hat that he is wearing. The thing is that while I was making this card I realize that he looks a bit like a wizard as well. Now I have other ideas of how he might get used…
Many times I fall asleep thinking of card designs and wondering if certain things can work or not. This card is one of those wondering if something could work or not, and it did work! I used a stencil to emboss my background. Using the embossing mat with my Cuttlebug I was able to use a stencil to emboss instead of an embossing folder, this is so cool! My stencil love just grew.
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!
This is my last Christmas card of the season, I believe. Hopefully this next year I will be better at making them all year and not wait and do them all at the last minute. I did better this last year and it was nice, but honestly, Thanksgiving hits and I get in the mood and I really enjoy making lots of Christmas cards (and I need to I lost count somewhere around sending out 80+)
I could use a hot drink right now. It is really cold here right now! Not getting snow cold, so I shouldn’t complain. Yeah, I am still going to complain. I have hit a point in life where I do not like it to be very cold.
