The rest of the Christmas cards

I am SO going to do Sparkle's Christmas Card Challenge for 2009. I was working on Christmas cards up until 4:20 PM on December 23rd. The worst part is, I actually started my Christmas cards back in September. I think that starting so early gave me a false sense of security, and then other projects kept getting in the way, and sometimes I just wasn't motivated, blah blah blah... So, in 2009 I WILL get my Christmas cards in the mail December 1st. Here are some of the cards I made this year.

This shaker card was for my BB sistahs...Evensong Creative Basics paper pack, Snow Friends stamp set, Clear Sparkles, snowflake button and glittery stuff in the shaker from various crafty stores.




This shaker card was made in October using the November Stamp of the Month, All Decked Out and Evensong papers.





This is the ACTUAL final of the first accordian card I made. I posted the picture I took before adding the "Christmas", which was heat embossed with gold embossing powder.




These next two photos are of the second accordian card I made (tutorial is available here).








Everlasting papers, Evergreen stamp set and Holiday Craft Buttons.


Evensong Creative Basics papers, Cuttlebug Christmas Ornaments embossing folder, and Holiday Craft Buttons.

Evensong Creative Basics papers, December Word Puzzle stamp set.




Evensong Creative Basics papers, Evergreen stamp set, Cuttlebug Snow Dots embossing folder.





Evensong Creative Basics papers, Festive Frills stamp set, Red Sparkles and glitter glue.





Everlasting paper pack, Snow Friends stamp set, Stampendous! Crystal Snow glitter.

Some of these cards are from Close to My Heart Originals Card Confidence Program (I have the old version, but the new and updated version is available now only through a Close to My Heart consultant), some of the others I just made up as I went along. Now to get started on next year's cards.
