Christmas early this Year?

I know it's the wrong time of year to post a Christmas card but I just thought I would share one or two I made last year.  I really felt that I excelled myself last year.  Dies used were Tim Holtz Holiday Lamp Post, Tim Holtz Festive Greenery, Tim Holtz Mover and Shaper "25".  The Snowflake swirl was from an Artemio Christmas set and the small medallion used to stopper the easel card was from a freebie set in Issue 98 of Cardmaking & Papercraft.  The glitter used was from Issue 97 of Cardmaking & Papercraft.
The sparkling background was created using Glimmer Mist and Crackle Accents was used on the lamp post.
I know I say this every year but I think I will get an earlier start on this year's Christmas cards so I don't end up with sleepless nights as the last postal date comes (and goes).  These dies arrived after many of last year's cards were already made so I think I will make at least a dozen to send to friends who didn't get my Tim inspired cards.


  1. You could have just said you were being super efficient and getting all prepared for next Christmas. It looks fantastic, but then your cards always do.

  2. I'm going to join the Christmas Card challenge at Waltzing Mouse. Each month you design a card based on the criteria given. You have to use their stamps somewhere on the design. You remember I said I was interested in buying some matching stamp sets for the spellbinders dies, well this is the company. It was hard to decide on which stamps to limit myself to, but I managed to limit myself to 2 sets plus a Spellbinders Vintage Ornaments set. I'm so excited, I can't wait until they arrive.


I'd love to hear from you !!!
