When you make Christmas cards, do you create a different design for each recipient, or do you prefer mass producing? I tend to mass produce only because I'm always afraid I'll forget which design I gave someone, and I wouldn't want to give them the same card two years in a row! LOL
Sometimes doing assembly lined cards can get a little tedious for me but not this year! I loved, loved, loved creating these. I used an A2 sized kraft cardbase for the cards. I usually use patterned paper but lately I've been dabbling in art journaling and mixed media projects so I had some wet paint on my craft mat that I didn't want to waste so I used it to create a spattered background. Love how it turned out. The white color is from watered down white acrylic paint, and I used a dye re-inker from SU to make the red spatters. So fun! I'm definitely going to add more spatters to my projects in the future, I love the randomness of it :)
The reindeer image is a stamp I picked up from The Paper Source store. Isn't he cute? I stamped & embossed him & the sentiment using black ink & black embossing powder. Then I colored the reindeer using Copic markers and added some stickles to his little nose :)
I mailed out my Christmas cards today, well actually I missed the mail man so they'll go out tomorrow... on Dec. 1st! Last year I think I mailed them on the 21st :) It feels so good to not be rushing. So are you ready for Christmas?
