Twelve very quick Christmas cards.

Hi My Crafty Blog Friends,

How is your week going? I hope you are getting everything done that you want to do. We are mostly doing Christmas prep in our free time. Work for me finishes tomorrow. We have a busy weekend ahead but things should calm down after that.

I seriously misjudged how many Christmas cards I needed. When we were writing them on Sunday I realised that I needed to make a few more. Now there isn't  a lot of time left is there? So I needed to make some quickly.

I made three of each of these designs so that is twelve altogether. They are made with a Kanban pad that was a members gift from Create and Craft a while back. I was looking through the pack I noticed that some of the sentiments on pages of four  matched some of the backgrounds. I added a few die cuts and there you have it some quick cards. 

The deer family dies,from Sue Wilson's  2015 Festive Collection of dies, I thought went well with the designs just cut in white. Did anyone else get the Crafter's Companion Advent Calendar? Everyday there is a new die it is a lovely gift, I used the star from my collection of dies on one of the cards. 

The recipents seemed to like these cards. I still have a few cards to make. Next year I am going to have to be more careful about calculating how many cards I need. 

Happy Crafting

Hugs Jackie

  8. Your Christmas cards are amazing! How did you make so many in such a short time! It takes me a while to make cards! The papers are so pretty, but what I really love and must get now is that beautiful Sue Wilson deer die set!

  9. Beautiful but they don't look quick to me!

  10. Very pretty cards, Jackie. Love the wood-style paper! I didn't know about the Crafty Companions advent calendar - sounds like a brilliant idea. (I got a Boots No. 7 one - new skin care and cosmetics to try each day - I'm not complaining, but do you think my hubby is hinting at something!??) xx
