The C Word!

Xmas091a

I know it seems like a long way off ... but I have never managed to make every Christmas card that I have sent.

Each year I start off with the best of intentions and each year I end up buying several packets of cards to send out, in addition to the few that I have made. 

Well ... You heard it here first ... this year I am going to make every single card!

So best I get started then seeings as my list runs into 100 plus cards!

To get the bauble rolling I have joined the Cupcake Craft Challenge this week where the theme is distressed.Xmas091

I have stamped 4 Wendy Vecchi Christmas trees coloured them with Pine Needles distressed ink and layered the middle tree up. All the trees were stamped with Wendy's Christmas text and then mounted onto a background made up of the beautiful holiday pear collage stamp by Rubber Stampede. I distressed the edges and added some Vintage photo ink for the distressed look.

The paper used is from my favourite Christmas paper collection which is Cosmo Cricket's Be Good range.

If you are wondering what to get me this year Santa ... Don't worry I shall be posting my list very soon :0)

P.S I have been good ... well, sort of :0)

It's lovely. I particularly like the tab style sentiment. How long would it take to crank out 100 of these beauties then? Mine will be erm, less complicated!

Biskit said...

Beautiful card Linda. Like Julia I'm also keeping mine far less complicated this year. I will not let your design sway me from that...

Hels said...

WOW, this is simply ink-redible hun...I love the trees, the way the middle one is 3d is FAB! That Be Good is my all time fave too...and, I only have a few scraps of it left :O( I already sent Santa an email (he is very up to date nowadays you know) and he got an Elf to reply, telling me that he knows I have been good but isn't so sure about you....whatever have you been up to??? ;O)

100+ cards? I don't even think I know 100+ people and that's including the ones I don't like ;)
Why do I get the feeling Santa will be raising an eyebrow at the 'good' comment? Hmm? I can ask him you know, ask my kids, I have Santas hotline number.

I love the aged look of this - it's beautiful :)

Ann said...

Beautiful card. I love the colours and the 3D tree in the centre. Can't say I'd ever make 100 the same in any design, I like to make each card differently - get easily bored otherwise!
You've only 99 to go!

Donna said...
