Christmas - Oldie Moldie Monday

It is Monday - time to show some love for your old supplies.  Lucky me - the Christmas Card Challenge Blog Jingle Bells is continuing their challenge of something old and something new.

This week I bought a new thinlit die - it is a sentiment - I thought it would make some great Christmas cards and they would be fairly easy.  (and I was correct - since I had the supplies out I made two)

The paper is old - it is a paper pad from Paper Studio.  Nice pretty paper in the traditional Christmas colors of red and green.

I was trying to make the cards flat to help with mailing costs but then I thought I needed something in the corners - a little more red - so now the card is less mail friendly.  Oh well - I think I am single handed keeping the post office in business.  Last week's trip to the post office was $13.00 and that cost does not include the envelopes that did not need extra postage on them.

Remember to show some love for your older supplies.  I now have 3 Christmas cards made for next year.  The insides are done on all of them and the envelopes are decorated.
