Christmas Card Ideas

Are you in the midst of creating Christmas Cards yet?  If you have, this may jumpstart some more ideas for you J.  If you have not started, this may get the “creative ideas” flowing for the upcoming Christmas Season! 

In a past post – I had talked about the Christmas Card Making Day that we hold each year.  This year, our friends/customers created TWELVE Christmas Cards during this 9-3:30 day.  We used new stamp sets and embellishments from the current 2011 Fall/Winter Idea Book and had a GREAT time using so many of these NEW items!  J

Here is a picture of 11 of the twelve cards they created. (sorry Mindy, I don’t have a copy of your card! J)

It was SOO FUN to come together and see the different styles and ideas that each person came up with when they used their new stamp sets!!! 

I’ll share briefly about each card and who created it & the products used! J

We wanted to use the Sept Stamp of the Month (SOTM) set – since this event was held in September J.  Stephanie Huber did a GREAT job in creating this wonderful  Money/Gift Card holder card using the Believe paper pack. 

We also wanted to include the October SOTM stamp set since in this was next months discounted stamp set!!!  So, Elizabeth Mindemann showed us how to use Liquid Applique and she used the new paper pack Elemental & the stamp set Christmas Love to create this card! J

Gennette Feagan created this adorable sleigh card using the October SOTM stamp set and our new ROXIE paper!!  Everyone loves Roxie J – it can be used for sooo many occasions!!!  Gen also used our new pewter ribbon slides…a GREAT add on to any creation. 

Some other new stamp sets that were used in our creating…
