Yes, it's a Christmas card.
(Don't freak out too much)
I know, I know......we have all de-Christmasfied our houses and put it out of our minds for another 11 months (unless you are my neighbor and still have your tree up and plugged in 24/7 since mid-November. Seriously, I'm mystified by it).
BUT making a Christmas card falls into my plan for 2012 to SIMPLIFY. That's the word I chose for myself this year but I want you to know that it's just really a fancy word to allow me to be lazy when I want to be. I'm all about full disclosure.
I am planning on playing along with the lovely ladies, Stef and Lauren, over at the Jingle Bells blog to make a Christmas card (or 2) every two weeks. This way when it comes time to mail my cards next year I will potentially have 50 cards ready to go. You see, when I sat in my craft room for hours late one night to mass produce Christmas cards for my co-workers just days before the 25th, I was kicking myself for not joining in last year. I do not want that to happen again. It was not fun.
This weeks prompt over at Jingle Bells was to either make a card with a Christmas present on it or use wrapping paper. I chose the wrapping paper route and cut out squares which I rounded the corners of and attached them. It was a bit messy because I am a Mono Multi girl and wrapping paper is thin and the paper warped pretty easily. I did make 2 but the other one ain't pretty.
I heat embossed my front sentiment from Believe by Ali Edwards and also stamped the inside of the card. Is it ok to say that I'm kinda thrilled I don't have to put away my Christmas stamps anytime soon?

P.S....I'm going to be back soon with a stamp giveaway. See you.
