A Christmas Medley - Cards for 2012

Hi ladies!  I'm on a roll; I am creating my Christmas cards for 2012.  I will not be late; I will not be late; I will not be late in 2012!!!  What a great resolution for me!


I love the 6x6 size of finished cards.  Of course that means I make my own 6x6 envelopes - gives hubby something to do in the evenings if tv is boring!

And I also love working with the CTMH White Daisy Cardstock for my basic 6x12 and fold it in half - perfect crispness every time.  The bg paper is from a pad from Crafter's Companion.  The cute little saying is from the Squigglefly Digi Collection and entitled "CHRISTMAS MEDLEY" created by Jess Holland.  Using this Medley and Holly Young's video I did learn to color the various notations in different colors - but I used them on other cards which I'll show you later on.  Do you like the background of the sentiments - another paper created using shaving cream!  I then used my  Fiskars punch to run across the top and put a black bg against the olive green which was run thru my CB with the Swiss Dots plate.  A few snowflake brads and some handmade lace, and wallah.  2 down and 200 to go!  Just kidding - I hope!
