Christine - Christmas Cards

Hi there - Christine here. This week the Challenge is Christmas Cards - so here's a set to show you. Each year I like to mass produce Christmas cards and this year this is my go to design. Each card has a different background paper but the rest is much the same.

I have used Authentique's Festive 6x6 paper pad.

I have used Spellbinders dies -2011 Heirloom Ornaments, Ribbon Banners and Decorative Labels 1.
The ornaments were cut out with lovely shiny red metallic card that Liz has in the shop, I cut out a smaller one inside and then put patterned paper behind it. I used the smaller  ornament on the inside of the card.

I have a few Christmas cards to make, so setting up a production line is a good way to go for me. Also varying the papers keeps it interesting!
So how do you go about making your Christmas cards?  I use to find I would run out of time before Christmas and I would have to put them away for the following year!  I would love to be organized enough to make one card a week during the year! Perhaps next year??!!

Make sure you enter your Christmas Card in the Gallery Competition by Saturday 17th Nov to be in with a chance to win one of two prizes. There are new Christmas Challenges each week from now til Christmas - so don't miss out!!

TFL and Happy Creating!
