Its Christmas Card Time!!



Merry Christmas!....well almost. Can you believe it really is right around the corner? AHHH! I am in a hurry for it to get here but at the same time I am wondering how I am going to get everything done by the time it does get here!...lol Well, at least I have one card made..tee hee.
Of course I used my Pazzles Creative Cutter to cut it out. I'm tellin' you if you don't have this machine yet. You NEED it! I also used files from the Pazzles Cutting Library.There are thousands of files available in the library in wpc and svg formats.
For this card I used the Holly Swoop file and the Poinsettia & Bow file from the 9th day of the 12 days of Christmas series in the projects section. The music paper background is called "Sing the Carols" from October Afternoon. All the plain cardstock is from Recollections. I curved the petals and leaves on the poinsettia to give it dimension and added a few punched circles in the center. I also chalked the edges of the card and poinsettia before assembling it.
Well, that’s one card down and a ton more to go...lol! But with my Pazzles I know I can get them done in a snap! I hope you have a fabulous Christmas and you get everything done you need to before it gets here!...lol
