Handmade Christmas Cards

Very happy with my most recent Christmas card effort.

After a few hours of designing and planning I had precut all the pieces, ready for assembly. I created a little production line at a Scrapbook Cottage (my local scrapbook shop) crop night. Overall it took me about 8 hours to make approximately 50 cards, not a bad effort if I do say so myself.

The card was inspired by the Teresa Collins Tinsel & Company collection. By the time I got around to making cards most of the line was sold out in my area, but I did manage to get the background paper for the cards. I had a moment of inspiration when I saw the burlap ribbon in Bed, Bath and Table on sale and using three contrasting papers with the ornament punch from Stampin Up completed the look.
