I know I am posting this about 13 days late. If you wanted to do a 12 days of Christmas, you still have time! Or maybe you can 'pin' it or put it on your to-do list for next year. I know I already have a list of things that are just going to have to wait until Christmas 2013. I did feel that this project or idea, was so important this year, that we are sharing Christmas with 3 of our loved ones. For more details on creating this Advent Calendar, you can read my article for Fiskars here. Thanks to my friend Shannon, for sharing this idea last year. Since we live so far from all of our family, I knew this was something that I wanted to do for loved ones at Christmas.
This is how I make cards. Cardstock, patterned paper, embellishments, etc....all in a row. Assembly-line cardmaking. It goes quick and it works for me.
After I made my first set of 25 cards, I decided because of circumstances within our family that this needed to be shared with a few more people that could use some Christmas cheer. So I made another set using Cosmo Cricket's Jolly Days paper, chipboard, etc. I love the card pieces on the kraft cardstock. Mmmmmm my favorite color cardstock! Enjoy!
