Catching Up On My Cards

Hi Everyone!! I was recently reading my friend Amy's blog, " Scrap This Save That"  and she was talking about how we all have a year to make Christmas cards, and yet like her, I didn't send out nearly the amount of cards that I should have!! Anyway, she has a new plan, and I am jumping right on her band wagon, to make at least 1 Christmas card a week, so that by the time Christmas comes around I should have roughly 50 cards before I really sit down to make my actual Christmas  cards, and maybe I wont be so far behind.  I already have a couple made, I am trying to make at least 2-3 of every kind. I want to show you the first card that I made, there are a few different versions of it, but this is the one that I liked the best, I hope you like:
This was made with gold stickers, I peeled a few pieces off, and left some on, on some of the other cards, I used double sided tape, and when I peeled the pieces off, I added fine glitter, and they really are coming out great, I will share one with you soon. The paper is from Paper trey Ink,Pure Poppy, the gold stickers are from Elizabeth Designs, and the Merry Christmas, I wrote myself with a white gel pen.  So, I hope everyone joins in and builds up your stock of Christmas Cards for next year, and please check out my inspiration for this idea, Amy, at Scrap this Save That!! Karen♥
