Holiday Cards – Take 1!

Howdy do y’all?!?! πŸ™‚

And this is a craft post after quite a while I think! And time it is as the holiday season is round the corner and time to get some cards in place! πŸ™‚

Playing along with some challenges – CAS-ual Fridays #79 – Winter Blues (winter themed project showcasing blue), Clean and Simple Stamping #217

And the card I made for this challenge –

Used the dark blue strip of handmade paper with some lovely metal notches on it and paired it with snowflake pp from a pack that I bought three years ago (yes! I still have it!) called Santa’s on his way from Hallmark and a die cut with the PTI stars die. Sentiment from PTI’s Communique Curves and the postmark from PTI’s 2010 Holiday Tags. Like the way it turned out! πŸ™‚

The next challenge I am linking to is for Crafter’s Corner #2 – dies/punches + stamping

And the cards I made, Β staying true to my CAS style –

A simple Christmas card using the circle dies, the bow and poinsettia dies and stamps. A light background with Hero Arts music bg stamp. Sentiment from PTI Stylish Holiday sentiments.

This is a simple card that can be mass produced! Used PTI triangle dies and an edger (not sure which number), bell image and sentiment from PTI Bells and Boughs set.

Whew! Sorry about the multi-challenge-link post. Crazy to be doing individual posts at this time when time is precious! My apologies for offending anyone with that! Well….it is MY time eventually! πŸ˜›

Thanks for peeking in and here’s wishing you a great start to the holiday season – crafting or baking! πŸ™‚

And many thanks to all my new followers! Hope the bakers are not upset with my crafty post and vice versa! πŸ˜€
