15 Days of Christmas Cards - Day 1

Good Morning! Happy Black Friday! I don't normally go out on Black Friday, but this morning I actually did and it wasn't that bad. I got what I needed to get and I know a little girl who is going to be very excited Christmas morning.

So what is my title all about? Especially when I've been showing Christmas cards quite often these past few weeks... well, I've been inspired to by Kristina Werner who has been doing some awesome videos on Christmas cards and I want to challenge myself to do the same. I will still be posting for my DT obligations, hopefully incorporating this theme and of course, participating with my favorite challenges when I can.

So up first is a pocket card, the tutorial can be found here on SCS.

It was a simple card to create. I used the ornaments from the Winter Kit from All That Scraps (hurry, they are on sale today) and a snowflake that I received in a theme kit swap. My photo didn't quite capture the glitter that I covered the snowflake with. The piece where the ornaments are at is a pull out and then I left the lower pocket empty for a gift card.

Thanks for stopping by and we'll see you here tomorrow for another Christmas card.

Oh I do think this is one of my fave cards from you yet!! I love the colors of this, and the snowflake and bow are so perfect together. When I was posting my diorama card link I kept thinking that I need to do more of those SCS tuts and saw this one posted. I think the last time I did it was last Christmas! Time to re-visit these techniques, thanks for the inspiration!
