I finally finished the last of my Christmas cards and, as fun as they are to make, I’ll be looking forward to moving on to other things now. I tried to keep them all lightweight and not too bulky this year and I can tell you it’s not easy to resist adding that little something extra. Buttons and bows, flowers, rhinestones, pearls, lots of layers and dimension – I love all those things and they’re part of what’s fun about card making. I think I’ll not worry about it next year and just figure the extra postage as part of the expense of Christmas.
Today’s card uses an Inky Antics Holiday BaZooples set which I bought last year. I love the fun of these characters almost as much as I love the fun of coloring them. This one was watercolored on 90 lb hot press watercolor paper with Stampin’ Up! inks. The layout, such as it is, was determined by the shape of the designer paper scraps. I save every tiny piece as though I have a shortage of designer paper. Perhaps that’s why I have so much designer paper – if I would ever give up any of these trimmings. . .
Enjoy this last week before Christmas. I’ll be plenty busy, but after this week I’ll be on vacation till after the first of the year. So looking forward to that! Thank you for coming to visit!
