Christmas 2016

I know it's early for Christmas, this is only February after all, but last year I was rushing to lay in some cards because I wanted to send one to EVERYONE.  Sometimes I get an idea and wear myself out.  So this year, I decided to try to make a few every month so hopefully, next winter I'll have them ready to address and send out way ahead of time.  It's the thought that counts.

Anyway, here are some I've made for my Christmas stash.  And some days it just feels like Christmas, you know?

I computer generated the sentiment on this one.
The sweater design paper is from a big stack of card stock with a lot of great images.

I cut out some and put them on tags.

This from another Christmas stack.  Such cute images.


The following were made with NAPKINS!  This last year I've had so much fun using Mod Podge and napkins to make cards with.  Many friends have sent me tons of napkins, and I've looked for them in stores to add to my stash too.  One can never have enough napkins.  

Last fall I spent a couple of days just doing Mod Podgey craftiness.  (Yes, that's a word, look it up.)  And recently I dragged out those pieces and cut them with dies or just into rectangles to add to cards.  I thought these turned out sweet.  I can't wait to send them out next Christmas.  (If I can bear to part with them.)

Fewer cards to make at the last minute now!


  1. Love your idea of making a few cards each month TK! Your cards are so creative and I especially love your Mod Podgey cards. Being a lover of snowmen, I hope I am on your list for one of those napkin cards ... hint, hint! Hugs, Gail

    1. You got it. You need to try napkin cards, they are such fun. Here's some directions from an earlier post. Come on, you know you want to. :)
