Christmas Cardmaking Time-I Ran Late!!!

 I've made a couple of videos showing a bunch of Christmas Cards I made to send out this year. I have to say this is the latest I've made cards so most if not all will be late on arrival. Last year I sent out cards in plenty of time for everyone to receive them on time. I got a text from my SIL in NC, in May, that she just got my card! The Post Office is not what it used to be. I have faith that it will do better in the future. That is not going to stop me from sending out paper cards!!!

I got some of my ideas for the cards from Pinterest, and the Atlantic Heart Sketch Challenge.

Here are some pictures of the cards I made and sent out:

The slim line cards and the deer cards are the November and December Stamps of the Month 2022.

The papers used for the cards are the Four Seasons Winter papers 2022 as well as older Christmas papers. Some are the Christmas Story Picture My Life cards with cardstock, glitter paper and shimmer trim. the silver trees are silver foil paper. I also used several embossing folders for interest and dimension. Close To My Heart Cricut collections were used for various Cricut cuts and CTMH thin cuts were used to enhance the sentiments.

Here are the process videos:

And the 2nd video:

All the Supplies can be found on my website.

I appreciate you watching the videos!

Braided Cards - So Fun and Beautiful to Create!!!

 After perusing Pinterest, I came across braided/lattice work cards. I had to try the technique right away! I fell in love, I guess because I always liked flowers and vines on lattice work. I was pleased with how easy it is to do this technique, thanks to online templates. It's worth a try for your own fun. I have a link to a template for your use. I also have links to the products I've used to make the cards.

This is the template used to make the braid.
