After making 40 cards for all of the people involved in the Christmas production, I had to do all of the Christmas cards for my family and closest friends. I got the idea for these cards from kwernerdesigns and adapted it for the supplies that I had on hand (thankfully, I took great advantage of last month's Stampin' Up! promotion and got loads of paper!...phew!!) I also needed them to be simple so that I could make them quickly.
I like how they turned out, but I ended up destroying my Coluzzle cutting mat doing all those special circles. I think my blade had gotten dull with use and it ended up tearing through my mat. I think I can get a replacement at a local craft store without having to re-purchase my whole Coluzzle kit.
Some of the red ones with the green ribbon remind me of Norwegian artwork and designs (my Great-Grandmother came to Canada from Norway). I think for that reason those ones are my favorites.
