I have many friends that get so bogged down at Christmas time that they don’t get to send Christmas cards out!!! Screeeeech, wait a minute . . . that sounds oddly familiar. Oh yeah, I didn’t send Christmas cards out last year. Sad for a cardmaker to say, right? Well for this year I wanted to make inexpensive "in money" but rich ‘in detail" cards to some of my girlies so that if they get in a bind, they can whip these out and there’s a homemade element to them.
I found these gorgeous cards at Michaels in the $1 bin they are simply ripe for personalization. There’s enough room on the front that I can spice them up with some of my JustRite Stamps. So in a matter of minutes I have a cheater’s card that has a touch of home made.
Today’s blog hop is ultra special!! We’ll be doing this every Wednesday until November 24th just to show you all the neat things you can do with JustRite Stamps. In fact to celebrate and to kick off the 12 week Christmas Blog Hop Wednesday – JustRite is offering a free shipping coupon code–for September 8, 9th,10th– please enter this code into the promotional code box at checkout CBHOP1 , the offer will expire at midnight PST and is only good for orders shipped within the United States and its US Territories. (Oh, my budget likes this!!)
In each instance, the quick embellished card is on the left and the plain card base is on the right. The above card uses a sentiment from Whimsical Christmas, and sits on a punched scallop and circle.
This card uses a sentiment from Hearts Come Home and the sweet holly leaves are from Holiday Cheer. Spellbinders Fancy Tags fits well in the vertical space.
This next card uses a center and border from Something Sweet and is also layered with a punched scallop and circles.
This next card uses a center from Something Sweet and it is centered on Spellbinders Labels Fourteen.
This last card I cut up and used the flourishes on the headers inside my gift box. With the three left over cards I simply covered where the word "celebrate" was using Spellbinders Fancy Tags and Ribbon Tags Trio Two. It uses the simple sentiment, "I Believe" from the Christmas Nested Sentiments and Verse Set.
Just remember, Christmas will be here before you know it, lol!! I hope you’re ready :-)
Don’t forget to see what the rest of the JustRite team has dreamed up for the blog hop, here’s the hopping list!
