I only made a few cards for Christmas this year. I wasn't too motivated, but I hopped in to my "workshop" and gave it a go.

I have a friend who loves the llama craze. I have a llama metal die. I'm experimenting with what to do with him. I quickly fashioned this card by creating & printing the sentiment and background in Adobe Illustrator. It's a cute idea, but I think it needs a lot more to it. What ideas can you share with me to tweak the final design?

Fa La Llama!

I was playing with a couple of "round" metal dies. I used this "star burst" (if you will) and the Merry Christmas die to make a shaker card. Another flop in my opinion. I do see many other possibilities in my mind.

Merry Christmas

Here is card that has a number of elements added to it. Using Pazzles' software I created the "swirl" flower. It is a popular shape as of present. Again, no need to purchase dies when I can draw it up in Pazzles. In this case, I used the shape as a wreath, layering two of them.

Bold Colors

I do love the way the next cards turned out. Simple white cardstock with a tree embossing folder. I used my Pazzles software to create and cut several cardinals and the sentiment. That sentiment is tiny and it took me several tries. But I know Paz could handle it.

Simple & Crisp


Fresh
