So to inspire you (and me!) to get into the holiday spirit, I am sharing today the cards I made last year. Pardon the photos... they were taken before we even thought of starting a blog. So there was no concept of staging whatsoever :)
I had 2 sets of cards made for mailing. Both are relatively flat, regular A2 in size and made with the new-to-me-then Wreath for All Seasons stamp set from Papertrey. I love how easy it is to use this set and how elegant the finished product looks.
I also used Papertrey cardstock, polka dot stamp, inks, Mat Stack 4 and double ended banner dies. The embossing folder was Cuttlebug's Candy Cane Stripes.
Last year, I also made Papertrey calendars using patterned papers and my Zutter Bind It All.
And this was how I packaged them. This was the CD version of the calendars. I made the tags using my Cricut and embellished them with Papertrey's Holiday Tags, Postmarks, Limitless Layers Dies and some buttons and patterned paper strips.
And some simple thank you cards using Papertrey's Holiday Lights ...
Hope I inspired you to get started on that holiday list! Enjoy the rest of the weekend.
