Christmas Cards for 2010: 33 completed!

Yes, I did! I have 33 Christmas cards done for this Christmas 2010! I am using up that "have to have" pretty holiday paper and using a lot of glitter, stickles, and scraps. So sorry about the reflection, however I have almost all of these in clear envelopes for their protection, and just did not feel like taking them all out for a two minute photo! Starting from the bottom photo, these are my A2 cards, next is my 5X5 cards, and the last two photos are my 5X7 cards. I really did not use anything special, my goal was to use some of my paper that I was hoarding, and then I found other goodies like ribbon, embellishments, punches, stickles, brads, rhinestones, and so much more. It was actually fun just to cut and glue and these were all done with nothing in mind. I just let the paper "speak" to me and than ran with it. I have always been one of those gals who can hold a piece of paper and have visions in my head of what to do. I have a baggie full of items I have inked and glittered to make at least 33 more cards, and hope I continue on with my venture, as I can always sell the excess in my Etsy shop. I hope this inspires all of you to start early and get a jump on the holidays for 2010. I am going to start pre making all holiday cards, so all I have to do is pull from my stash. I just hate card making under pressure, as I am a scrapper, however like making homemade cards now too.

WOW! I am impressed. What a great start. I have 5 Christmas cards but they are left over from 09 so I can't count them in my 2010 total. All your cards are beautiful and I am sure, will be hard to part with. Great job!
