February Christmas Cards

As I did last year, I joined a group on Stampin' Addicts to help me get my Christmas cards done before they need to be mailed in December! Each month we have committed to making a certain amount of cards so that we have them all done and ready to be mailed come the Christmas season. We do this for 11 months and December we mail/give out all the wonderful creations that we made throughout the year.

Here are my February cards. This is the group picture of the 10 that I made. Last year I made 16 each month and had WAY more than I needed, so I cut back a little bit.

And a close up of one of the cards.

Stamps: Tidings of  Joy, Woodgrain
Ink: Crumb Cake, Early Espresso, Soft Suede
Cardstock: Crumb Cake, Soft Suede, Very Vanilla
Accessories: Victoria Crochet trim, Soft Suede taffeta ribbon, 
2-way glue, Dazzling Diamonds, sponges, aqua painter

Just in case you are wondering, I did my cards in January too! I had several cards that were cut and leftover from classes in November and December so I just put them together. You have already seen these cards on previous posts! You can join us with getting your cards done early! Come over to Stampin' Addicts and join in!

Happy Stampin'!
