Scott's Christmas Cards

Every year, I make cards for DH to give to his co-workers and this year is no exception. There is NO WAY I'm going to let my DH purchase cards - just NOT gonna happen!

These are the cards for this year:


They were mostly done last night until I couldn't find the right ribbon to attach to them and I went a little nuts. I mean geez! I could open my own dang ribbon store, so why is it that I didn't have the ribbon to match the cards - UGH!

This morning I went out and bought what I needed...as well as 100 yds of white organza so I wouldn't run out for a while!

I used more paper from the Winter Bright kit for these and the card bases are Wild Wasabi (of which I only have a few pieces left - WAAAAAHHHHH! Good thing my Kiwi Kiss should be here soon!).

I stamped the little images in Brocade Blue and Wild Wasabi...except I can't remember the name of the set because I never put the dang sticker on the clear case - UGH! So...if you know the name of the set, will you PLEASE let me know so I can write it on in sharpie? Thanks!

I punched the images out with a scalloped square McGill punch that I have had for AGES and adhered them to a piece of Wild Wasabi. The two pieces of DP on the front of the card are from the same DP, just flipped. The top piece is 4" X 4" and the bottom piece is 2" X 4" and they overlap in the middle. "Happy Holidays" is stamped on the inside.

I tied the ribbon on this afternoon and VOILA! Fourteen Christmas Cards.

Supplies Used:
  • Stamps: Can't remember, please tell me if you know!
  • Ink: Wild Wasabi, Brocade Blue
  • Paper: From Winter Bright Kit
  • Cardstock: Wild Wasabi
  • Accessories: Ribbon

So...ummm...how much do you think I should charge him??? LOL!!!

Happy Stampin'!

  4. I love those cards, I still need to start or continue working on my XMas cards, I started few weeks ago and then stuffed them in a zip-loc bag and put them away. Thanks for the inspiration!

  12. Nah...don't charge him....Think of them as major league brownie points...never know when you may have to call on them~

    I can relate to the ribbon saga....I am exactly the same...so many ribbons I could break a leg stepping over them and do I have the right one for the job? Often not. It is truly something most frustrating!

    Green is a great colour for men (I am especially aware of this since a couple of men demanded to know why we make their cards in shades of brown!)
