Mega Christmas Cards

I was so very excited last March when I got my first Christmas order for 30 cards!!

Of course, when I was on my 28th card I wasn't s
o excited, but these were pretty, so I said - enough - just finish them already!!

I loved this Flourish stamp set from the first moment I saw Sharon Johnston use this set here. She really is the stamp simply Queen, so I decided I would just stamp simply also, and mass produce at the same time!!



I stamped the tree with Versamark and embossed it with gold/silver embossing powder.

Then I added the gold/silver brads in the corners.

I used Little Yellow Bicycle designer paper and Papertrey Ink Gold Shimmer Cardstock for the first 15 cards and then Fancy Pants designer paper with Papertrey
Ink Silver Shimmer Cardstock for the other 15 cards.



I ran the slice of shimmer cardstock through the Cuttlebug textile embossing folder - I really loved what that cardstock looked like when it was done!!

I tied the silver shimmer ribbon and gold shimmer ribbon around the c
ard in a bow and then popped up the tree image onto the card.



VERY mass-producible!! I delivered them last night and she absolutely loved them (thank goodness!).

She was actually a little surprised that I had them done already!! But now they are out of the way and I can get onto my next project - what ever that i
s!!

Marcie has just reminded me about the craft show the end of November - oh right.......THAT project!! LOL!
