This weekend I had to put away all my sewing stuff and get out all of my card making things. I designated this weekend as the one to make all the Christmas & December birthday cards I would need for my co-workers. I need 14 cards total by Tuesday. The good news is I have 11 finished! I think I will be able to make my deadline.
The not so good news is, I had to do this without the use of my Cricut or my new Cameo! I only had the few punches and shapers that I purchased before I bought paper cutting machines. The blade on my Cameo is defective, so that was a no go; and I like to use the MTC software with my Cricut, but I must have updated my software at some point as it was not working with the Cricut, even though I hadn't used it since last Christmas time.
Anyway here are two of the cards. To make this a bit faster and easier I made two of each design. And, since I'm making cards, I'll enter them into a challenge or two along the way.
This is the Bugaboo stamp JJ Christmas Cheers
She looks like she's having quite a merry Christmas!
I colored with my Promarkers, without trying to blend and shade, no time for that!
The papers are SEI from a few years ago.
The green trim is from AC Moore.
The sentiment is Studio G
I'm entering this in the "Santa Baby" card challenge at Catch the Bug Challenge Blog.
