*Another Holiday Card*

I am very very pleased to report that I have made a total of 60 Christmas cards.... I might be done, although I might also make another 10 just in case. I like to have extras on hand. I have made a lot of different designs this year and I chose 6 that I really liked and made 10 of each of them. I spent yesterday afternoon finishing them off.

The best part of doing it this way is that I was able to spend more time on the cards. Instead of 60 simple design cards, I made a few designs that were simple and a few that required more work (lots of colouring).

I might make another 10 of a new design to send to those people who read my Blog so that they don't get something they've already seen.

The card today is a little "different" for me... not really my Christmas style this year. More traditional and grown-up than the others I have made.

I saw this set in The Angel Company catalogue and I had to have it. The swirls were so beautiful and the images all so elegant. Not sure what else I will do with the set yet.... will have to do some more playing.

Items Used:
*Images: The Angel Company Holiday Magic
*Cardstock: Stampin' Up! Ruby Red, Basic Black, Whisper White
*Patterned Paper: Basic Grey Fruitcake
*Ink: Document Black Ink; Stampin' Write Markers in Garden Green
*Embellishments: Sakura Quickie Glue Pen with red Ultra Fine glitter; Prima flowers; silver brads


So, now the question... when do I stop making Christmas Cards? As I've said before, Christmas is my favourite "reason" to make cards. I think I still have a few Christmas ideas left in me... not to mention a bunch of stamps that have never seen ink, patterned papers that have never been cut, and embellishments that are begging to be used!

Oooh, what a beautiful card, so elegant!!
I have never made 60 cards for a holiday ever!! You are amazing!
I think you can make whatever you want to, whenever you want to, and if you are tired of x-mas cards, then go ahead and make something else, but remember, you can always make extra cards for next year, or donate them to someone in need of a few cards!
