Mid Week Challenge: Christmas & Winter

I have been on a card making spree! This is the first time I have made multiples of the same card for OWH. Usually my cards are a one time deal. I like to think that the person receiving the card is getting something truly unique. The downside to this way of doing things is that I make very few cards overall. I was excited to see this week's Christmas challenge because last year I scored 100 Christmas card bases and envelopes from Hobby Lobby for next to nothing. So I went all out and make lots of cards this week (at least for me!) So far I have made almost 40 cards this week. Considering I've only mailed in 80 cards total since January this is really big for me! I just cut up some of the cards to make other cards. I think I am going to end up with about 70 completed cards from the 100 bases. I am very pleased with that and I will still have the 30 extra envelopes.


  1. Oh I like your winter/Christmas card assortment!

    Thanks for playing in our Midweek Throwdown challenge at Operation Write Home Stars & Stamps!

  2. These are so great Shannon! I pinned that last one; I love the layered matte look. I usually do 4-6 multiples at a time. They don't take up that much more time, and if you work with scraps, you can make each one just a bit different than the others based on the kind of scraps you have. Plus it still takes less time than it would to make 4 completely different cards. Now I'm really in the Christmas spirit!

  3. By the way, where did you get that snowman stamp on the "merriest wishes" card? He's too cute.

    1. Hi Rachel! The stamps are Inkadinkado 98408. It's a super cute set!
