Christmas cards revealed   11 comments

As they are all in the mail, I can share this year’s Christmas cards with you.

The design and assembly were pretty simple, thanks to a 1 inch hexagon punch. I was able to use up lots of bits leftover from previous years’ cards, which is nice, as not only have I got a yarn stash, but I also have a paper stash. Using this pattern, I was able to get 4 cards out of a sheet of 12 by 12 paper and a sheet of 8.5 x 11 paper. However, it would have been more economical to put the solid color beneath the print, I think I could have gotten 6 cards from the 12 x 12 had I done that. Only trouble is I like them better this way. 🙂

I used the wonderful Cricut machine to cut the sentiment.It is a wonderful machine for “mass” production work.

I never miss a chance to add glitter and sparkle (stardust pens from Sakuri, stickles from Ranger)

Because I was using stash papers, I was able to make several different versions of the card.
