I Said I Wouldn't Do This!

Ok, I was talked into creating a blog to showcase my creativity. I have been resisting this for far too long, but now is the time to finally get the ball rolling.

So here goes. Come with me on my journey into creativity.

Santa Suit Christmas Cards

I don't know why I do this to myself every year.  Christmas comes around on the same date every year... December 25th.  So why do I wait til the last minute to get my Christmas cards done.  I procrastinate and then I'm rushing trying to get them done and in the mail before Christmas day.  Last year, I didn't make it.   So, I have to laugh at myself, I didn't call them Christmas cards, but holiday cards.  Since the holiday runs through the 1st of the year, I figured if I got them in the mail before January 1st, I was good to go.

I have been scouring the internet and different blogs for inspiration trying to decide if I will make all 80 cards the same or mix them up this year.  So to change things up, I am doing sets of 10 of the same cards.  I only have to come up with 8 different designs.  This is going to be a challenge.

So here is the first set.  There is a site that I go to all the time by a cardmaker named Susie.   I just love her white on white cards.  She has a great gallery of all sorts of inspiration and I love going there for inspiration.  You can check her out at Heart Prints .  I was also perusing Split Coast Stampers for some inspiration.
This is where I came up with this first set of cards that I created.  I think this Santa Suit card is too stinking adorable.

The Silver Buckle was cut at 1.5 inches from the Fabulous Finds Cricut Cartridge.  The White cardstock was cut to length at 7 inches after punching.  The Black cardstock was cut at 1 1/4 inches (width) by 5.5 inches (length).  I used a 7 x 5.5 cardstock base.

The inside sentiment reads: Santa Claus has the right idea…visit people once a year!
