belated Christmas cards

This past few months have been super-busy as we prepare to welcome Baby Wear, so it took us a while to send out our Christmas cards this year. I'm pretty pleased with how they turned out, though. I borrowed the designs from Julie Davison's Merry & Bright Christmas card kit. I didn't order the kit, sicne I already had all the supplies, so I just guesstimated on the measurements. I love how using the same supplies can give so many different card layouts. While this design uses some rub-ons and paper from the Holiday Mini, I'm considering offering a similar card kit for all-occasions, or maybe for Spring. What do you think?

Patterned Pines

Once I come up with a design I like, I have found it very helpful to just cut up the ingredients to make a whole bunch of cards with that design. That way, it's simpler to whip up a card on a moements notice. I designed this simple card for a PhillyInkers Shoebox Swap, and then I wound up using the remaining supplies to make my Christmas thank-you notes. I used the Patterned Pines set from the Holiday Mini, and it's only available until January 4th. It's available for free with a $150 order.
