Quick & Stylish Christmas Cards

If you enjoy making cards you probably make more of the Christmas variety than you do for any other occasion. The need to produce more, divides us between the 'come up with a single design and replicate' ....

Stampers Annonymous Classic #10 with Pan Pastels
and the 'I can't bear to make two cards the same' schools of thought.
Hero Arts K5533 Snowman & Snowflakes, K5620 Winter Trees, H5629 Many Branches and the greetings from CL541 Snowman Christmas all with WOW Embossing Powders

I am definitely one of the latter but I am happy just to tweak the design/colourway if I have lots to make.

Each year so far Snazzys have come up with a Christmas kit including cards, cardstock, papers, stamps, ribbons etc all already colour matched for you with as many different samples as we could squeeze out of it to encourage you to give it a go.

Unfortunately, this year time has completely run away from me but I thought you might like to see the samples from our recent bumper card making workshops each of which followed a similar concept.

Here are the first 16 from the Teresa Collins Christmas Cottage collection.....

.....and, at this stage I hadn't even used a quarter of the paper pack!
Over the next week or so I will pop back with the remaining cards I made from this collection, and those I made in less conventional Christmas colorways for the other bumper cardmaking workshop at Snazzys.
Happy Christmas Cardmaking to all xx


  1. WHat a great selection! I am also of the "can't stand to mass produce" but when time is against me...I think (I really hope!) I have made all the ones I need, just now got to write them, which is worse!!

  2. Beautiful cards!!! I wish I had half as many made!
