No, I’m not! I do this to myself every year. Last minute cards are becoming a tradition – here I am frantically coloring on my lunch break.
This ‘Reindeer Fun’ stamp & die set by Mama Elephant is so cute. Best of all, I didn’t have to order anything online for my cards this year. I get so impatient waiting for craft supplies through the mail, especially when I’m already running behind. I found these at JoAnns!
Thankfully, they are all in the mail as of yesterday. Now I sit and wait to receive a card in return… yes, I sit and wait.
I got a late start to making my cards this year so I needed something quick and easy. I decided on this cute Lawn Fawn stamp and die set from Simon Says Stamp.
I spent a portion of 2 lunch breaks coloring these in…
Believe it or not, this is my first time using dies to cut paper. I purchased my Big Shot due to my interest in cutting felt. The dies don’t stay in place as easily as they do on paper so this was like a little adventure.
I cut about 100 or so and used 3 to 4 on each card.
Since it took so much time to color and cut these out and like I said– I really got a late start, I just went with washi tape to dress the cards up to get them out the door!
Ok, I think I’m done with the Thanksgiving cards. 6 should be plenty 😉Time to start on Christmas, gotta make a lot more than 6 of those for sure!!!
Found this on the Cricut site. I modified it a little to vary the leaves a bit. Those letters were tedious, in case you want to give it a try. I suggest tweezers!
