Christmas is only a few days away! Can you believe that! I hope you got all of your Christmas cards in the mail on time! If not, well…maybe start a little earlier next year :).
Anyway…you may not have enough time left to get a card through the mail to someone, but you still have time to hand deliver one! Who wouldn’t love that? Hand delivered… to your door… with maybe a small box of goodies attached. Ho Ho Ho!
Stamp Of The Month: Bright & Beautiful #3
Here’s a closer look!Here’s a tip: Don’t put everything away! Keep out some Christmas items when you clean up from the holidays this year to use for some of next year’s projects. You can use some scraps, wrapping paper, ribbon, or whatever you choose and make some cards to send out for next year. Yeah!
Just save a few pieces of Christmas “inspiration” in a box with some folded card stock (for bases), and you can pull it out during the year and have a few Christmas craft sessions (think Christmas in July here!). It really does help relieve some of the stress, and it frees up time to enjoy other things (like the new stamps you will “need” next year!).
Here’s what I used to make this card:
