Want to make your own Christmas cards but feeling short on time, or stumped for ideas? We have an awesome new kit that makes 20 holiday cards for just $20. Use the suggested stamp set or improvise one you already own! I am having fun using the card bases, trim and pre-watercolored elements and making the cards my own.
This photo shows the four card designs you can make if you follow their instructions closely. I learned two new ways to use sequin trim from this project! The Watercolor Christmas card kit even comes with envelopes and gold foil envelope liners--such an elegant touch.
Never one to follow the leader, I started mixing things up and adding bits and pieces of ribbon, swapping base colors, running things through an embossing folder, switching out the stamps. Fun!
If you want to give yourself a break this year but still get handmade cards done, this kit could be the answer. Inexpensive, fast, with just enough space for personality without overwhelming you with too many decisions.

It feels great to have so many cards done this early in the season! Maybe I will actually get them out on time this year. Hey--it could happen!
I really like your alternatives. Are you sharing more or have a tutorial? I do not have the cable knit embossing folder or the real kit but plan on both. I have the stamp on order. I am making a lot of cards for nursing homes and kids in the hospital's but do not want them all the same. I am trying to use up some older DSP also. Embellishments are discouraged due to choking hazards sometimes. I love the trees with those stripes too. Well done.
