2011 Christmas cards

Here are the cards I made for Christmas this year. (This year instead of making all of our cards I just stuck with a more manageable number and only made 30.) I used the Taylored Expressions Joy to the World stamp set. And since I had to order the stamps I went ahead and got the Christmas card kit from there too. (I would highly recommend the card kits. I did add some kraft cardstock card bases to help stretch the kit items. I was able to make all 30 cards and I still have plenty of the 6x6 papers and some cardstock left over for other projects.) I like the kit because everything is coordinating and takes the guess work out of matching. I used Copics to color my angels. (The most time consuming part of the process.)

I used the Spellbinders Labels 10 to cut some of my images other were cut with the Ovals dies. I rounded the top 2 corners on the card base and on my layers, and then added a knot from some of the ribbon included in the kit.

 Some of the the cards. I like that they are all unique, but still similar. (This helps make assembly line card making less boring. LOL)

This one was cut with Labels 8 (?) The sentiments were stamped with Ranger Distress ink in Barn Door.
I am very happy with the way they all turned out. 
I am looking forward to being a little more crafty now that Christmas is over.(Crazy as it may sound, I am still in the crafty Christmas mood, so don't be surprised if Christmas crafts pop up again in the near future. LOL)
Thanks for stopping by!
Until later~
