50 Card Workshop: Christmas

Here are the five designs I created using CTMH's fabulous how-to guides for this year's 50-card workshop. It was supposed to be held on 12/5, but both my little one and hubby were very sick. (The all-occasion version will post in the next few days.) Instructions are available for this workshop for a small fee, and if you'd like to order the complete package of materials just let me know!

Since we can enter the Heart 2 Heart challenge more than once this week, I'm adding these cards too. Don't make me pick a favorite, although I'd love to know which one you prefer beest.

All of the cards use the Colonial White 50 cards and envelopes, the Mistletoe Creative Basics paper pack, and extra Colonial White cardstock. I used Cocoa, Cranberry, New England Ivy, and Garden Green inks.

I kept these simple so that 50 would be easy to make and easy to mail. In addition to direct-to-paper ink distressing, I am teaching workshop participants how to make faux brads. I wish you could see the shimmer and sparkle on them! I love the Santa sleigh and reindeer from the I Believe stamp set!

On card #2, I got a little carried away with the Glitz glue! I love this stuff, but a little obviously goes a l-o-n-g way.

The Evergreen stamp set is still one of my all-time holiday favorites. (Who am I kidding? I love ALL my holiday stamps!) Can you see the sparkle added to the trees with the Glitz glue?

This card was too plain until I added the pretty stamped border. All of the stamps on this card are from the Mistletoe Workshop on the Go. The exclusive stamp set in this collection is called Timeless.

Last but not least, this card uses the Nature's Gift stamp set. I really am a nature girl at heart, even if I don't get out in it too much. (I love looking at the beauty around us.)

Merry Christmas!
If you have any questions about any of the cards, or would like to ordering info to make your own, just shoot me an email at


  1. Pick only one? Well, if I HAVE to...I think it would be #2. And fake brads? Oh yes, great idea!

  2. I can't pick. I like them all. And have resolved to start NEXT year's Christmas cards early. After I make a bunch of all occasion cards. Which will probably be after the Christmas decorations are packed away again! :-) Hugs!


Thanks for taking the time to visit and leaving me a comment!
