Working On My Stash

 While at the retreat this past weekend, we had what was hopefully our last cold snap for the season.  With freezing rain and 20-30 mph gusty winds we were all really glad to be inside crafting all day and most of the night!  The chill made it a perfect time to work on a few Christmas cards for my 2022 stash too.  

Today I'm sharing A Child is Born with this image ~ Angel and Baby Jesus ~ from C. C. Designs.  

I've used Copic markers for coloring and then used Spellbinders Labels 15 for the decorative edging.  The chocolate brown dotted swiss background paper is matted on a 5" white card base, then the image is secured on top.  A brass colored cross is tied in the knot of the single wrapped twine on the top fold.  

How about you ~ do you work on your Christmas cards throughout the year? 

Thank you for stopping by today to view my blog.  I enjoy sharing my work with you and invite you to “Follow” my blog and to visit my site ~ “Not Just Scraps” on Facebook ~ where you can purchase my cards.

  3. What a cutie Pam - no I usually mass produce my cards late in the year (Oct/Nov) as i now don't send a lot at all. Some years I recycle images from commercial cards just to be different
    Stay safe
