I spent the last month working as hard as any of Santa's elves making cards for Vera Yates' Caring Hearts card drive. She collects cards for senior citizens in nursing homes, and had a goal of 7,000 cards this year. I managed to make about 60. (Vera needs to receive cards for this year by 28 November, but keep it in mind for next year.)
This is a CAS design I used for maybe 15 or 20 cards. Each one was slightly different, as I used snippets of different paper to cut the ornament; I also had some pretty ornament stickers I used on a few.
This was an easy design to mass produce. I used a Prickly Pear die for the ornament. The pine branch stamp is from the same set. I stamped it twice, didn't even bother to re-ink -- that gave me a little variation and depth on the branch.
It's fun to see how different papers for the ornament change the look. I like the striped paper -- it reminds me of the striped glass ornaments we had when I was a kid.
I'm showing two cards for the last Rudolph Challenge of the year. The card is for these challenges:
Rudolph Day Challenge November -- two cards
Crafting for all Seasons #91 -- Tis the Season
Creative Inspiration #291 -- Seasons Greetings
