Christmas on My Mind

Christmas is by far my favorite Holiday. I luv Christmas Decor, Christmas Wrapping Paper, Christmas Music, Christmas Trees and of course Christmas Cards. This past week I decided to jump ahead and make some Christmas cards and tags.

If you are looking to make your cards this year whether it be digital or hand made paper cards we have the perfect envelopes for you. There is something so yummy about metallic and everything shiny. For my tags I decided to use some of our A2 Star Dream Metallic Mars Envelopes. For the cards I decided to use our super classy square 5.5 X 5.5 Vellum Envelopes. Take a peek here at all envelopes sizes to find what you are looking for at CutCardStock.com .

Since I really wanted these tags and cards to Shimmer I decided to use StarDream Metallics in the Crystal Color 105lb cardstock as the base for my card and tag. I also used it for my embossed bird and I was really happy with the results.

Now remember we still have "The Colors of Fall" contest still going on. Its a great way to challenge yourself to get some cards made. At the same time giving yourself the opportunity to earn some gift cards to our store so you can stock up on some of the gorgeous Metallic Cardstock and Envelopes we offer if you choose. I have added a slide show on the right of the beautiful entries so far. So make sure to send me yours so I can add it but remember you only have till November 1st. If your wanting to see the rules and how to submit please see the previous post. You can leave the link and information on any post and I'll make sure to add your card or project to the slide show.

Have a Blessed Day, Norma Kennedy
