March's Christmas Card Challenge



Yep, that's right, a Christmas card!!! I'm involved with the SCS Christmas card challenge to make 10 cards each month so you don't stress out closer to the holidays. This is my third year for doing this and it's absolutely wonderful. I pull out my stash of already completed cards and send away.

This card I used stamps from Cornish Heritage Farms (an truly wonderful site!!). I stamped Mr. Snowman in black then colored him in with watercolor pencils and a little sparkle thanks to Stickles. The snowflake was stamped using white craft ink on Going gray cardstock. Other colors include Basic gray, Whisper white, and Real red. The red strip thru the center of the card was run thru the Cuttlebug using the Swiss Dots embossing folder. A touch of ribbon and my cards for March are complete. Now, what to make for April!!!

What a beautiful card--and a great idea! I start my Christmas cards in July as soon as the new catalogs come out in case I want to use a new set. Then I use the summer and early Fall to make 100 cards. On Black Friday, while everyone else is at the mall, I watch football and address all the envelopes. They get mailed out a week later. This really works for me and doesn't feel overwhelming when it's spread out...as you know!
