Thinking About Christmas

Good morning, and thanks for dropping by today! 

I usually have a good start on my Christmas cards for the holiday season by this time, but I only have a handful of cards ready for this year. In my family, we have a couple of holiday traditions which take up most of my crafting time in December. I won't go into detail about that today, but between the two projects it means about 78 scrapbook pages for me to complete. If I don't have Christmas cards finished and addressed by Thanksgiving, I will be up a creek without a paddle.

So today for Kitchen Sink Stamps 10 Minutes and 10 Minutes more designs I have created Christmas cards using Multi Step Gift. It is a great set for birthday cards and Christmas cards, as well. Now I only need about 50 more Christmas cards!

10 Minute Card

Papers : Pure Luxury White by Gina K. Designs, Martha Stewart Snowflake Mat Pad
Inks: Memento Angel Pink, Love Letter, and Rhubarb Stalk

10 Minutes More Card

For this card I stamped the bow a second time, cut it out, and popped it up on top of the package. I also added a fleur de lis frame and a pretty jewel to dress up the package.
