For the last couple of years, I have been making Christmas cards for the people in my department – about 30 cards. You can drive yourself nuts trying to make this many cards at one time, so I have opted for cards that can be reproduced quickly but still look nice. I also like to start as early as possible and work in stages to keep the project from becoming too overwhelming. Last year I chose papers that actually provided the focal images for my cards along with other patterned papers and die-cuts to give each one its own unique look. Even though I used the same sentiment stamp inside all of the cards, I used different background papers and die-cut embellishments so no two were exactly alike. I have already started working on this year’s cards and hope to have some completed samples to share soon.
