On Track for Next Christmas, LOL!

This year I am determined to make at least four Christmas cards per month, between now and November. So far, so good! I made six of these and they went together pretty quickly, even the coloring. I love this image from Stampendous, called "Merry ChrisMoose". After stamping it and coloring it with Copics, I used the Nestabilities Labels Two die to cut and emboss the image, and the next larger die to cut the background mat. The paper with the silver sparkles was from a pack of hand made papers I bought at Costco a while back. I finally got to use it!

The snowflake eyelet on the red ribbon is from Eyelet Outlet. I used JudiKins
Diamond Glaze on the ornaments hanging from the moose's antlers and a Stardust Gelly Roll glitter pen at the top of the ornaments.

Cardstock: SU Whisper White, Die Cuts With A View textured "Robin #2"
Stamp: Stampendous V163 "Merry ChrisMoose"
Ink: SU Basic Black Classic
Embellishments:JudiKins Diamond Glaze, Stardust Gelly Roll glitter pen, Martha Stewart ribbon, Sugar Coating Lily White glitter, snowflake eyelet


  1. this card is really fun. Like the snowflakes and the nesties is perfect for a fun card.

  2. A wonderful card Cindy and I think it's great that you're getting organised with your Christmas cards early, I need to do the same! I love your colouring and the dp is so pretty.

  3. I'm so glad I'm not the only one making christmas cards in January!! After the lastminute panic I had this year I'm going to be so organised for the next one.

    This is a fabulous card. You don't see these new nesties as much as the others but they are fab. Love it.


  4. lovely card!
    It's a good idea to start making christmas cards already. I should do it too, then I'm not so fed up by making them all at the end of the year ;)

  5. good idea!! It would save us from getting all stressed!! By the way - have you seen the blog Christmas Cards All Year Round (not mine I should point out!!)

    With a few challenges and things, it might just help the inspiration along!!

  6. What do you mean "next Christmas", I'm not ready to give up on the last one

    The card is beautiful, the glitter is great!


Thank you for visiting - I'd love to hear from you!
