Happy Hollydays Card

Hi, gang! Only 5 more sleeps! (Can you tell I have little people in my house counting down?) Here is this year's Christmas card that I am sending out. I have to make 120 of these each year, so I try to keep the design simple. Or so I thought ... I figured out that I touched each card 13 times in making them, not counting putting them in envelopes and addressing them!

1 - cut the snowflake out of the white paper with the Cameo
2 - stamp the sentiment on the white paper under the snowflake
3 - use glitter pen on the berries on the sentiment
4 - cuttlebug the white paper using the snowflakes folder
5 - edge the white paper with green ink
6 - cut the patterned paper for behind the snowflake
7 - attach the patterned paper behind the snowflake
8 - cut the red cardstock to mount the white paper on
9 - mount the white paper on the red cardstock
10 - cut kraft paper into A2 size cards
11 - mount the red paper with the snowflake onto the front of each card
12 - stamp sentiment into the inside of each card
13 - sign each card

So much for keeping it simple, huh? LOL!
We hope you are having a beautiful holiday season and can't wait to see some of your own creations on your blogs! See you tomorrow!
