Let the Christmas Cards Begin!

I love Christmas Music! I've been listening to it...and I have to just say I love it! I'm starting the Holiday card stash that I'll be selling at a Christmas Market the end of November. I've got a bunch of stuffs done, but I keep getting ideas....like the card organizer I made yesterday with my new Bind-it-All! Fun, Fun, Fun! I love this time of year, when my thoughts are centered around what gifts to give...I LOVE that part of the season! I apologize for skipping past Thanksgiving...I will show gratitude and post some "Thanks" this month.

This card was made from a scrap of the Dashing designer paper from Stampin' Up! last winter. I LOVE this paper...the polka dots make me SO happy! All I did was attach a strip of the designer paper to the real red card, add some beautiful old olive ribbon, punch a few punches(the key tag punch in old olive, large oval in very vanilla-stamped with sentiment in olive ink-) add a flower from the die cut blooms set, and punch some 1/4" circles to finish it all off! I did attach the flower to the card with dimensionals. So, not all Christmas cards need to take a long time, getting some great paper is a great starting point!!

Thanks so much for stopping by! Hope you have a wonderful one!! Don't forget to go VOTE today!!

So Jeni...do you love your bind-it machine? Is it worth the money and all? Just curious. I have not heard anyone talk about it.
One more thing..is it something you will use a lot?! I am just trying to justify the purchase.;)

oh...by the way...I like the card. And you are right..all cards do not need to be made with lots of labor!

This is so cute! I wish I had some of the old dashing paper - I like it better than this years christmas papers.

You always have such a knack (is knack a Texas word?) of making simplicity = beauty!
