Make ahead for Christmas!

Christmas Critters

The last couple of years I have struggled with doing my Christmas cards, how about you? I had a good chat with a friend a couple weeks ago about this and decided that once a month I would make a batch of Christmas cards. That way I won’t hit hit the wall with having to make over 150 Christmas cards! So, be on the lookout for a (HOPEFULLY) once a month post featuring a Christmas card!

I chose this cute reindeer for my first card. Check out the snow at his feet! That is a Uchida Marvy Snow Marker. you place it carefully, and then heat it with your heat tool and it puffs up like snow!

Adding a short sentiment, kept my card simple!

The patterned paper is the Happy Trails set from MFT, but these arrows looked like trees to me!

What a cute card! I need to make Christmas cards in advance. I don’t make as many as you, only 50-60, but that is still a lot! Thanks for sharing!
