The Calendar Girls are going to turn it out for you this month and share a Christmas card and a bonus feature. The feature being a picture of their card making process. Before I get to the bonus feature, I must regress a bit for explanation.
As you may know, I am fortunate enough to have a group of girls that I make Christmas cards with each year. We plan our cards very early in the year. In fact, usually shopping right after Christmas to ensure that we get the best deals on our supplies, as we each make around 80 to 120 cards.
There are five of us. We are a little crazy. We rent a house at the beach each year and spend a three day weekend. We shop, eat seafood, drink wine and make a whole lotta cards. We do all of this in October, so we are not rushed and it is DUN!
I had not thought of taking a photo of all of our cards. We are quite the sight. An average of 500 cards on a dining table. We have done this for enough years, that we have a pretty smooth system. Well, except for the year of the pigment ink drying...or the glitter fest....
This year those silly girls made a joke on me. I had made a comment that one of the girl's pajamas were the same color as her card last year, by accident. Well, if all the other girls did not have matching pajamas to their cards this year. It was like crafting with models from a Creating Keepsake photo shoot!
With that said, my picture is of my completed cards, yes, at home. I do not know what I was thinking with nine layers (two inside), one snowflake and rhinestone to boot! The photos do not show well, but the shimmer paper is really pretty.
I do hope that you have time to check out all of the Calendar Girls blog posts. Their blog links are on the right sidebar under Calendar Girls.
Hoping you have a great Holiday Season!
