My 2011 Christmas Cards

Today is a Crafty Designers Day over at Craft Junkie too!! I love this project too... today is the day the designers share Christmas Cards!

These are my Christmas cards for this year. I used lots of DCWV's glitter paper!! Love that stuff!

This is a standard A2 card base (4 1/4" x 5 1/2") using Kraft cardstock. The white card layer measures 5" x 3 3/4", the red patterned paper by Heidi Grace is 4 3/4" x 3 1/2". 

I cut the stockings using Joys of the Season (cut at 2 1/2"). The stocking bodies are generic red cardstock, but the cuff, toe and heel are white glitter paper. I love the touch of twine too. I grabbed this red and white twine on Etsy for a great price... I have TONS of leftovers too. The little sentiment stamp is by Stampendous.

I made a total of 65 of these terrific cards... if you are trying to figure out how many stockings that is... it's 260 stockings I cut and assembled! :)

I bought some Kraft cardstock envelopes from Clear Bags R Us on Ebay. The watermarked stamps were created using Dazzle Versamark ink. No heat embossing required, just stamp and let it dry. I love the look on the Kraft colored card stock too. Both of these stamps are by Studio G.

That's it, please head over to Tracy's blog and see what

I love the glitter on your Christmas cards! Such a great simple design, but it truly has a lot of impact. And WOW, that is a lot of stockings to assemble :) Love the kraft envelopes and card bases, too.

Love these cards Cheryl! Great job! I had the vision of creating my gazillion Christmas cards this year, but resorted to making my own photo cards which turned out super I might add! :) But I do love the stockings!

It is so pretty in person! This is my first year that I actually made the cards and mailed them! I was thinking I may do the Christmas card challenge year round...
