but what does it mean to those of us who actually need to hit the ground running at holiday time with 50+ cards?? well, clearly we need to be creating more than one card for each prompt! we can accomplish this by planning from the get-go to make two of each design we create; or by taking two totally different approaches to each theme. i suspect-- being, as i am, possessed of a short attention span-- that i will tend to mostly do the latter... but it's nice to have both options for times when life gets a bit hectic, right? remember that however you do it, this is still going to equal out to having made ONE UNIQUE CARD PER WEEK, just exactly like we did last year!
here's my second take on "NO TIME LIKE THE PRESENT(S)". on this occasion i've used gift wrap (the holly leaf paper) as a background; AND fussy cut a bit of the same gift wrap (the holly accent) AND also popped in a chipboard image of some pretty parcels. oh yes, and do you see the AWESOME "jingle bells" diecut?! wouldja believe our lovely belle miss lorraine of paper vernissage sent me that for christmas along with one of her own gorgeous cards from last year? how cool is that??! thank you, missus, i love it--and i know i'll use it all year long!!! this time i've cut it from holographic silver paper backed with cardstock, and i think it looks festive as anything!
