Christmas in July

So once again this year my Grandma asked me to make her Christmas cards. She likes to give me plenty of warning, and truthfully I love doing it. It gives me a chance to make a bunch of different Christmas cards and experiment with layouts and try to do something new and different. I had a great time using some stamps that I haven't really used before (the snowman set (the snowman is a trifold card and I like how it turned out), and the snowflake set) and I also used some old favorites in different ways to make something new. I think my favorite two are the dark blue with Mary and the Baby Jesus and the burgundy, green and cream with the snowflakes, though the snowman one makes me smile.



I am now working on some "just because" cards for my mom. I have had some ribbon that has gone unused and I have used it for inspiration on color combinations and ideas for layouts. I will post these soon. There are some I am pretty proud of.
