Oh Holy Night - A Christmas Card

It's no secret - Christmas season is on it's way.  I, like many of you, seem to collect craft supplies for making Christmas cards without actually using them along the way.  This year, I made a bunch of cards as my "main" card rather early and decided to dedicate myself to using these supplies to make a small amount of cards to supplement my card sending ways.  This card is one example.

This card is a win and a fail in a few ways.  Rather than detract from your experience, I'll just say that I intend to make some improvements and leave other foibles to remain in the card design.  The centerpoint of the card is the black cardstock die cut made with my Die'Sire nativity die.  I wanted it to stand out and I think that was accomplished.  The gold ribbon is from the stash - a piece of recycled material that I'm proud to have put to good use.  The sentiment is a Heartfelt Creation stamp onto a Stampin' Up Apothocary framelits die cut.

How about you?  Any Christmas cards in the future?  I've been seeing a few of you joining in the preparation.  I'll look forward to more inspiration.  Now, I'm off to plan the improvements to this card design and make a few duplicates for the card stash.


  1. Lovely Christmas Card!
    I haven't been really working on the holiday card yet but if I have a challenge to do, I tried to make it a Christmas card, and also make at least six of them at one go, that way, I will have some in hand when December comes!

  2. This is wonderful and love that die cut. Yep I see Christmas cards in my future too ;-)


Thank you so much for your kind words. Isn't it fun to encourage one another, even from a distance?
