Christmas Cards 2022 - 23 card designs!
I have never recorded all my holiday cards in any given year but I have been making and sending Christmas Cards ever since 1995. Some years I have made the same basic card for everyone on my list, but nowadays I prefer to make several designs and duplicate a maximum of 10 of any design. Otherwise I get bored and I get sloppy...
These are the cards I have made for Christmas 2022, in no particular order:
Card #1 has the cutest Santa ever from a very simple little layering set by My Favorite Things; CS-600 Sweet Christmas. Stamped in Altenew crisp inks and Delicata gold ink for the baubles. Sentiment and outline in Versafine black onyx (for all cards except if stated otherwise). The blue rickrack card is an old one from Papersource. Mounted with foam for added dimension.
This is a simple card to mass produce so I actually made about 15 of this design.
Card #2 Concord & 9th Shine Brighter stamp and die set - I believe this came out in their very first year as a company. I do love this set, a lot.
I stamped and die-cut the light bulb with it's socket, then die-cut a circle into my card base, added some yellow vellum that came with a Hero Arts My Monthly Hero kit a couple of years ago. Added a piece of card-stock with a die-cut circle to the inside of the card to make it look neat.
This card is a bit more involved to make so I only made 6 of these altogether.
Cards #3 and #4 were stamped with two Anita Jeram sets for the Colorado Craft Company and colored with alcohol markers. AJ523 - Get Together and sentiment from AJ-525 Teamwork. The snowflakes were stamped in Altenew Arctic ink.
Card #5 Christmas tree from an old Hero Arts My Monthly Hero sets, stamped and heat embossed in white on green card-stock from Faltkarten here in Germany. The star was die-cut from silver paper using a die from the same Hero Arts set. I did some dark green ink-blending along the edges to add some definition. The baubles are simple multicolored rounds from a variety pack by Paper Poetry. Very quick and easy.
