Good morning! I am super excited this morning to be sharing my Christmas cards for the year! We have been getting ready to move - and I have been trying to get ahead on my Design Team projects, so I really didn't think that I would get them done this year at all. But...I was super excited to have a little free time one day and get 50 of them done...along with a bunch of other things on my list! YAY!
They worked out to be the perfect card for mass producing...and I am even more excited, because every single one is unique and different! I repeated color schemes for each 5 cards, so I have 20 different colors schemes, but watercoloring allows for unique variations on each card even still. The other thing I struggle with, is a one layer and mailable card, that still has dimension somehow. For these cards I sewed the top of the watercolor paper directly to my card base, which allows it to mail flat, but when it comes out of the envelope, it drapes so pretty! I just LOVE it!
Here is the entire pile all lined up:
I am linking these up with the November Mama Elephant Challenge: Holiday Cards and Tags:
I also realized that the touches of gold made this perfect to link up with Virginia's View Challenge: All Things Metallic:
I watercolored the background, stamped my sentiment, added the little stars from the same set using Gold ink, then added a spritz of Gold Heidi Swapp Color Shine - once that all dried, I sewed it onto my card bases.
And...be warned! Picture heavy post! I thought I would link the 20 different combinations of colors I ended up with...so here they all are in their close up glory!
Whew...that's a lot of pictures! Here they all are together one last time!
Thanks for stopping by! Have a wonderful day!!!
