Christmas Card Tinkering!

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

Do you make cards for Christmas? Happy Christmas to you!

Hi Krista, Happy Holidays again!
Beautiful array of cards. If I had to add something to the llama cards I would ground them first and then add some snow mountains and evergreens in the background accented with some bling on their tops and tips (maybe some ultra fine glitter or some wink of stella).
Have a great New Year too!
