I'm making Christmas cards in August! My lovely customer Brenda used this stamp set to make her cards last year and she let me borrow it to make some samples. It's not really my typical style but I had a great time playing with it today. Sometimes my favorite projects stem from being outside my usual way of doing things. Here I'm using one of our new colors, Cherry Cobbler, yum. I also used some of the embellishments from the new Idea Book & Catalog. I used the lace ribbon (I just LOVE this, it's so soft and easy to use) and the basic pearls. Tara sent me a sheet of these and the diamonds and I can tell I'm going to have to include them on every card for a while! They're my new favorite thing. Both of these card would be pretty quick to make once you have your design squared away. I hope you might join me next week to make YOUR Holiday cards. Come to my open house on Monday to choose your design OR call/email your order if you know what you want and then come back the following Monday (the 16th) for an extended open house to get them made, Yay!
