1st batch of Xmas Cards

Well I normally make between 60 and 80 Xmas cards each year, and it is time consuming, but such a pleasure to trade with everyone. So I'm always looking and thinking of ways to make it easier on myself without doing one original and then making prints of it. I like receiving real originals, although I have received many that were prints and were gorgeous. So for my first batch, I used Art Emboss sheets on cardstock, run through my Cuttlebug and a label sentiment tied on with a ribbon. Real simple, but I think very elegant. So I have 20 down and only 20+ to go... big grin. I have a stack of Xmas cards from classes and previous years that I've accumulated, so it's time to use those as well. Click on card to see some of the other designs and how I made them. Assembly Line.

These are absolutely beautiful!!!! I just did 6 embossed brass with a stencil in my Big Shot & colored with Copics for an exchange...certainly took a lot of time - I like your way better...will look for some of the Amaco Art paper! Again, the cards/techniques are wonderful!
