I Was Busy This Weekend

I made 2 sets of 10 Christmas cards. My friend, who is a great fan of my cards, asked me to donate a set to a local charity auction that she's involved with. I happened to have 20 hero note cards with matching envelopes and since the half the work was already done right there I went to town!


I used punch notecards and envelopes for this simple set. I stamped tumbled glass distress straight from a square stamp block onto water color paper. After it dried I stamped the winter image from A Tree For All Seasons by Stampin Up in walnut stain distress ink. I colored in just the mittens with a Red Star Jelly Roll pen, it JUST matches the punch colored notecards/envelopes. The sentiment is stamped in walnut stain distress ink as well, directly to the notecards. I didn't use dimensionals to adhere my image panels for two reason, 1) so that they would all 10 fit in the clear card box & 2) so they are easily mailable.


I made a slightly more elaborate set with the latte cards/envelopes. I also used some Basic Grey Jovial paper and PTI scarlet jewel card stock. I made the gift bag for the cards to fit in, but once the cards are sent, the gift bag can be used to package a small gift. The stamps used are Hero Arts and Recollections. I added glossy accents to each light in the string, this little finished touch just makes the card, I think.
