Now I do not want to scare anyone but it is just over four months to Christmas and that scares the heck out of ME!
Last year I decided for the first time in my (too many) years of life to actually be ready when Christmas comes. I use to be that person you see scrambling around the week before Christmas like a deranged animal as I have left everything to the last minute. This resulted in me ending up looking like a zombie on the big day. So I decided to change this and get organized, to the point where I am now on the opposite extreme. Well, better too well prepared than not at all. Right???
So imagine my gratitude to Kaisercraft for getting their Christmas ranges kicked off in August with the lovely Mistletoe range. Such a classic colour palette and suitable for young and old. Now, at Christmas time we all need cards. Cards for teachers, sports coaches, colleagues, family & friends.
I chose to make a box to house four cards (or more) in a standard A2 card size. AND this year I am going to work smarter. I have come up with four standard designs and I am just going to make them in multiples from one range. As more Christmas collections are released I will remake them with other combinations. This way I use up all the paper I buy and use up the fabulous Collectables from Kaisercraft too. A2 cards are a good standard card size and are inexpensive to post.
All you need to make these cards is your normal basic tools, some 3D foam squares, ribbon and some glitter glue for accents.
Get cracking people, if you start now you can have all your Christmas cards made by the end of August.
