I admit that I found myself in a bind in terms of Christmas cards this year. Typically I make cards throughout the year so that I have a good supply when the Holiday season comes around. This year I wasn’t as diligent and I found myself a fair amount shy of the number of cards that I needed. So, I dug through my archives of cards I’ve made in the past to find a card that goes together quickly and adapted the layout for Christmas. This is what I came up with, and I put together 18 of these in an evening. Whew!

You may not recognize the paper that I used for this card. These patterns are from a pack that Stampin’ Up! gave to hosts in September (I think). The company is making this paper available for purchase to give us more options since the Joyous Noel Specialty DSP became unavailable to early in the Holiday catalog period. It isn’t a direct substitute since the colors are different, but I do appreciate having more options.

This is the first project that I created with the First Frost bundle. The images are so pretty in it, but other than the greeting that I used here, it doesn’t seem Holiday-ish to me. Thankfully, the products in the bundle will continue to be available after the Holiday catalog is over. However, you won’t be able to get the bundle pricing any more. So, if you’ve been considering this bundle, I encourage you to purchase it now while you can still get the 10% discount.
