Hello! I have to admit that when Papertrey first came out with there Button Bits & Holiday Button Bits sets I wasn't sold on them. Then I kept seeing all these adorable projects with them. Well, thanks to Sandye a fellow Papertrey swapper I was able to test some of these images out (Thank you!). I have to say I love 'em! In fact I purchased the Holiday Button Bits and the original version is on my wish list!
My card today is using the cute Gingerbread man (a family favorite) and my stamping friend Banu's sketch. You can view that sketch here.
Products used: Images, cardstock & ink are Papertrey. Ribbon is Wal-Mart (lace) and PaperStudio. Buttons and green cardstock are Stampin' up. Pattern Paper is Heidi Grace.
I love Christmas cards! I love making them...sending them....getting them! Whenever I read tips on how to cut back on holiday stress they always seem to throw out the Christmas cards...or at least cut back on them to a few good friends and family. For me it is one thing I don't want to give up...I take great joy in it. This year I have over 75 people on my card list. My hope is to make them all but I won't stress if I have to run out and by a box...LOL.
Here are a few Christmas cards I made a few weeks ago...
Products used: Papertrey cardstock, ink and ribbon. Taylored Expressions stamp set. Graphic 45 paper...love their stuff...yum! Oh and stickles.
