Not to alarm you, but we're about eleven weeks out from Christmas. The good news is, there are loads of festive products (like the adorable Furry and Bright set Sandy's featuring this month) in the MFT shop to kickstart your holiday cards. The better news is there's a brand new card kit coming next week that will elevate your Christmas cards big time. The best news is that you don't have to tie yourself to just one design or product — make yourself happy and use what makes you happy at any given time!
Oh my, friends, is it already into October!?!? Where does the time go? How are you doing on holiday cards? I’m Sandy Allnock, and I confess to finally being ahead on my cards by a wee bit compared to normal years — most of the time, it’s a crush in November, but I may actually even get them written before Thanksgiving if this keeps up!
With stamps like Furry and Bright, I can get a lot done. It’s perfect for me since I have cats AND dogs, and I’ve been making some background-less scene cards like this one lately. Nice and quick, but also lets me color, which is the best part of cardmaking!
I decided to try a non-traditional color way this time with pinks and blue-greens, but, my Prismacolor pencil set lacks the kind of blue-green I wanted. Guess what? You can make your own by layering a blue and a green. Love that!
I used the same colors for the pup and kitty that I used for the girl so the colors work well on the whole card. You can vary which of the colors is dominant in one or the other so the the the hair is differentiated from the pup using the same set of pencils!
To finish off the card, pick a horizon, whether a curvy one like I used, or an arc — you might even have a die you can lay in place and trace a nice smooth line. Fussy cutting is easy when you don’t have to do all the fussy bits, so just make the curve go above any of the more intricate areas. add it to a colored card base with some dimensional adhesive, and just add snow! That Uniball Signo gel pen is my BFF this time of year!
How many cards do you have left to make? I’m over halfway and I’m hoping being ahead doesn’t make me lazy — I’d love to be done early for once!
Ho ho ho!
