If you have a calendar nearby, grab it and mark this down.
From now on, we shall celebrate annually the year that Lisa finished her Christmas cards in JULY!
It's true. I kid you not. I started a New Year's Resolution list of things to do that I'd never done before. The list contains 17 items and finish cards early was #4...Done!!
There are 5 cards similar to this style...
Last year I was in complete panic- procrastination mode. You know the one where you're freaking out but continually maneuvering yourself in endless circles and complete a total of zilch!
One thing I do remember from all the frenzy was making cards that cost a pretty penny to send in the mail.
This year I decided for a variety of simplicity and perhaps less "puff."
There are a set of 5 of this style. Each with different stocking paper designs.
I created 5 of these designs as well....
This one, I think, is probably my favorite of this series.
And lastly...the little cardinal on a branch.
For those that prefer a more 'vintage' touch, there's this style.
I created 2 sets of each of these.
This was created by grabbing scraps in my paper drawer and cutting out tags. The house became an after thought in which case evolved the sentiment that I typed on the PC.
There's a total of 4 of this type.
Here's the card that got out of hand and reminded me to ease up on the 'poof' of layering. It would be nice if they fit in the envelopes. :)
There's 4 like this that vary in background DP.
I really like the chevron pattern.
And the final design I decided on was this layered tree made from scraps and simple torn white CS. There are also 4 of this style.
There you have it ... Christmas completed in July!
I hope this gives you some ideas for your card plans.
Thank you so very much for your time and visit.
Hugs and Happy Crafting to you,
