Happy 2012!

Happy (belated) New Year! Just thought I'd stop in for a quick post of this year's family Christmas Card. I have been sending a handmade photo Christmas card now for 13 years. I make about 150 of them, so I have learned to keep it down to no more than 5 steps. This year I went with Close To My Heart's Juniper and PTI's Kraft and Rustic Cream. One way that made this cardmaking procedure easier was CTMH's new Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge (with the addition of the Gypsy to expand my options). I created the photo band with the cartridge on the Gypsy & then just waited for them to cut (LOVE THAT!) I stamped them up and assembled. I know I make it sound so easy, but the truth is, it is a bit time consuming. Good thing I enjoy doing it.
Next up is a card I made for my sister's birthday. Today she is celebrating her 45th birthday - did I mention she was my older sister? Heehee! I used CTMH's Typeset papers and the Blue Ribbon Stamp Set. I love how easy it is to coordinate everything with Close To My Heart products!
Thanks so much for stopping by today!
