"Snowflakes are Kisses" Christmas card

Happy Friday, Crafteteers!

Don’t you just love Fridays?  The work week is done and all of the plans for the weekend are within reach.  This weekend will involve crafting, golf, a wedding and some ultimate Frisbee.  It will be a fun filled weekend.
Snowflakes are Kisses
I am sharing another Christmas card today.  As you may remember, one of my New Year’s resolutions this year was to make at least one Christmas card a month.  The resolution is going well as I have made over 10 cards since January 1st.  Although I am making a little over one card a month, I definitely need to increase that number now that August is almost at a close- perhaps ramp the quantity to a card every other week.  Although I completed one card last week, I decided to make another  Christmas card this week.  This card used Quietfire’sSnowflakes are Kisses stamp and Basic Grey’s Little Black Dress paper.
The dies used are Spellbinders’ Venetian Motifs and Spellbinders’ Circles.  The yarn is part of the Martha Stewart yarn collection and I used a Martha Stewart edge punch to create the horizontal band.  As you can see, I used several gems on the card front to simulate sparkly snow falling.
I probably won’t be able to make a lot of this one due to the quantity of gems but I may make a couple.  How are your Christmas cards coming along thus far?  Do you have many completed?  How many cards do you usually make for Christmas?

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Enjoy the weekend.

  5. This is incredible! I love the gems, and that wonderful fibre! Good for you sticking with your resolution! I've stuck to mine (playing along with both Merry Monday & Jingle Belles for the year). I usually make around 300 Christmas cards (about 40 or so for personal use) and that head start is a life saver.
