The cobbler’s children have no shoes

Debra Burgin 2010 Christmas cardAnd the cardmaker very nearly didn’t have any handmade Christmas cards this year!  Condensing my monthly schedule into the first two full weeks of December sounded good (so I can enjoy a guilt-free conscience as I celebrate later in the month), in reality it is making me crazy.

So this weekend I really got serious and made some progress.  This, our Christmas card, uses elements from a couple of cards we made in camp last month.  I think I can crank out 80 of these with a moderate investment of time for a fairly big impact.

Stamps:  Peaceful Season (Holiday Mini hostess set), Wonderfully Worn

Ink:  Old Olive, Rich Razzleberry, Very Vanilla (Craft)

Paper:  Pear Pizzazz, Very Vanilla, Old Olive

Other:  Heat Tool, Two Tags die, 3/4″ Circle Punch, Jumbo Brad (5/16″ Very Vanilla), 5/8″ Satin Ribbon (Rich Razzleberry)

    Can’t wait to see it IRL! I think Pear Pizzazz is my favorite color.

  3. What a lovely card! Glad that you got them done. … I made lots of Christmas cards for a craft show last weekend. Also made some matchboxes, filled them with chocolate and stamped the top, “Even the naughty deserve something nice.” Bad thing is that I didn’t sell all my cards and boxes. But the good thing is that I won’t have to make so many cards and gifts for teachers as I had previously predicted : )

    I may change up the stamps and use this layout for Valentine’s Day.
