Christmas Cards

It looks like I have decided to make my Christmas cards myself this year. Not sure yet whether I'll make all of them, but I'm making them in batches of 10. Ten of one design. Last year I only made one card, this one (but I wouldn't dream of making many of that same design, too labour intensive):

Here are the ingredients for my first 10: 3 different patterned papers (I used KI Memories), white cards, greeting stamp (I used Hero Arts), ribbon (I used KI Memories), transparency and tag rims. I haven't got enough tag rims at the moment, but I got some more on eBay, so those should be coming soon. Other things I used: circle punch, red Staz'On ink, Sizzix decorative strips loopy, circle cutter, staples and Cuttlebug snowflake emboss folder.

And here's what the finished cards will look like:

Are you making Christmas cards this year? If you have any ideas to share, why don't you leave a comment with a link, so we can all be inspired.

What a gorgeous card design, Lisette. I really love your cards (and of course your other scrap work too). What a great idea to use the Sizzix loopy die. It matches perfectly with the papers. I haven't used mine for a long, long time but now I will definitely use it again. You always know how to inspire me. Talk to you soon!!


PS: So far I have only made 1 Christmas card, so I don't have much to share with you yet.
