I DID manage to make some Christmas cards with more traditional focals, but they still were mostly quick and easy with purchased elements for the card focals. This first one has Dazzles stickers for the focal. I put them on a turquoise mat I had cut from glimmer paper with a Spellbinders Labels Eight die. This was centered on a sliver glitter card base that I embossed with a Darice embossing folder ("Photo Frame").
This next card was made using a partial kit I got from a "Girlfirends Getaway" weekend sponsored by Hot Off the Press. The papers were really pretty and the tag worked well with the outline sticker greeting. Border stickers from my stash (purchased at a dollar store) and HOTP Jewel Dazzles finished it off.
So there you have it - a few of the over 100 Christmas cards that I made last year. Naturally the best ones went to special people and I regret that I have no pictures. I told myself that I'd start earlier this year and get Christmas cards made every month (and posted here) so I wouldn't have that happen again. Well - obviously the posting has happened this month, but no Christmas cards made yet. Maybe next month. In the meantime, my next posts will show you what I HAVE been up to so far as papercrafting is concerned this month.
