My Christmas Cards, Fancy Friday

It's almost December 1 and that means it's officially time to put up the tree and get into the Christmas spirit!  This weekend I host my very last cardmaking class for 2018.  I made this batch of cards especially for the lovely friends I'll see there at the session.

I always aim to get my Christmas cards out in the first week of December.  I love the idea of these holiday wishes bringing someone a smile all month long.  A display of cards from loved ones really makes a home feel like Christmas and truly is the nicest holiday decor!

As I was creating a batch, I stuck with a pretty simple sketch.  The bold photo paper from the All is Bright Designer Series Paper pack made for the perfect quick background.  The stamp comes from the Labels to Love set.  I stamped it first in Soft Suede on the vanilla panel here, then again on a scrap piece of vanilla in Real Red.  Cutting the 'Christmas' from the scrap red sentiment was easy - it's all straight lines - and made for a nice pop of colour to tie in with the reds throughout the design.

Cards for my fellow crafty friends can sometimes be a challenge as I want them to have something special that hasn't already been featured in a class session.  I'm so grateful for today's Fancy Friday blog hop for motivating me to get these made just in time for this coming Sunday's event.  Click the next link below to follow the hop and find HEAPS of wonderful Christmas card inspiration!
