Wishing You a Very Merry Christmas

I hope you're all having a wonderful holiday season and wishing you a wonderful new year! As a teacher this season has been especially busy, helping the kids prepare gifts and holiday items to share with their families. Also I've been battling a cold for well over a month. Luckily I have the next week off so hopefully I can rest up and maybe do some crafting. The card above was made with Kreaxions Punch 312 and Basic Grey Nordic Holiday.

Happy Winter

I hope your holiday preparations are going smoothly. I have some shopping done but not much else. I won't be getting my tree until next weekend but one of the most fun parts of the season is pretty much complete. Making Christmas cards! I used 312to create two different borders for the card above. The top border is technically the "trash" left over when you punch the bottom border, but why let such a pretty detail go to waste. I even added the negative from the border as a snowflake embellishment on the picture card. I love that elements created with Kreaxions punches can add detail and intricacy to cards even when they aren't the focus of the design. Remember punches are one sale and at $11.99 Punch 312 would be a great companion for winter card making this year and every year to come.
