Woo-hoo, I'm so excited because I finally get to start sharing with you the Christmas cards I made for friends and family this year. Knowing that I needed LOTS and LOTS and LOTS of time to get these done, I started in June and managed to finish 60 by mid-September. Then I had to work on my little gift calendars. But, I think I'll need a few more Christmas cards so I'm working on another set now. Hope you'll visit often as I plan to post something new every other day.
First up is happy Cappy by Sister Stamps ready to string his lights on the trees in his snow-covered back yard. I love Christmas lights and had this light image by Stampendous for a few years. I inked up Doogie, his Santa's cap by Dandelion Designs, and the lights, then fussy cut them. Though it was a bit tedious cutting around the string of lights, I had fun. Plus, I love to cut paper. A little slit was cut under Doogie's left paw so I could tuck the light under to make it look like he's holding it.
Once I decide on a layout or scene, which often times takes a while....LOL, I'll cut out / prepare all of the pieces, then assemble them onto the cards.
And here are 5 of them ready to go....
