An Early Start...

I was so proud of myself for having gotten an early start on Christmas cards this year... I actually started in October. The downside of this is that I felt so ahead of schedule, I worked on other things. And now I have one week until my own personal December 1st deadline!


Not to fear, though... I have PLENTY of supplies. :)  This year, I was inspired by The Best Things in Life Are Pink blog and tried to kill a whole pad of 6"x6" paper. Then, I decided to just do half of the pad, and save the rest for my Christmas layouts.

I used Lawn Fawn's "Peace Joy Love" line for these cards.  At first, I wasn't sure about the black, but I really like the black and red combination.

For a little sparkly touch, many of the cards were outlined with the clear Wink of Stella brush... perhaps a new favourite of mine. I also added some wreaths cut from glitter paper using Memory Box's Starry Wreath die (I think this might have been discontinued, which is a shame).

Oh, yeah. And sequins. :) I'm totally digging this last one with the bokeh background paper. I might have to go back and buy a few (many) more sheets.

And a little tip that I picked up from a CKC long gone by, I used the perforating tool from Cutterbee around the edges of the papers to give them a look similar to that of the stitched dies that are so popular right now.

So five down, ninety-five to go!! So much for being ahead of the game. Wish me luck!

Supplies:  Lawn Fawn's Peace Joy Love 6x6 inch petite paper pack, CTMH stamps, Bazzill cardstock, Wink of Stella brush, Memory Box Starry Night die, sequins
