Christmas Card 2016 #1

I know we just ended the Christmas holidays but if you are a cardmaker, you really need to start now so you have cards to mail in December 2016.  This is especially true if you usually make one of a kind cards (although I am kinda toying with making some multiples this year - toying is the word).

Yes I am still mailing cards - I call these my winter and new year cards.

If you follow some of the Christmas card blogs, you have an advantage in getting some of your cards ahead of time.  This week the challenge on Jingle Belles is Something Old/Something New.  This challenge worked in well with my Oldie Moldie Monday challenge to myself.

My card this week uses new paper that I bought this year.  The image was already stamped and colored so that was a bonus.  The snowflakes were in my supplies (well aged).

Another goal I have for the year is to finish the inside of each card as I make it.  The inside is done and I even grabbed an envelope and decorated it also.

Remember to show some love for your oldie moldie supplies - they still make wonderful cards.

what a fun & fab holiday card ...and SCORE for finding that fabulous image had already been colored so beautifully! so pleased you could join our 2016 JINGLE BELLES fun, more is sooooo totally MERRIER, lol! ♥

(ps: you are VERY wise with the "inside of the card" resolution, i think i'm gonna do that too; also find an envelope for each card as i go... those two are my december pet peeves, lol)
