The Joy of Making for the Season is palpable when fall arrives. I just itch, just yearn to create. Back to when I was a girl and we would set aside a day to make Spritz Cookies in double-digit dozens. That was the best day ever and was one of many highlights during the holiday season. I love throwing my heart into it. The same goes with cardmaking. I love working through the year but something magical happens when we get into the season of giving. In these days, so sprinkled with hope, I suppose I dream about one of my cards gracing a home or one of my gifts tickling someone deep down in their soul.
I’m so grateful to have had the opportunity to create some Christmas dies with my A Charming Christmas Collection. They are food for my yearning to create and I find myself looking forward to tinkering with them. Actually, this collection was designed a year ago, so I’ve been waiting with baited breath to create actual cards.
Joy of Making for the Season
I wanted to create a card with a bit of old world charm. Along with sultry old papers, I picked the Charming Snowflake Doily to highlight. I chose gold but I’ve seen this in both white and silver and those are next on my list. This is a die that can be used year round, but the petite snowflake charm makes it Christmas :-) It was fun to play!
