Renee had a great idea to get a head start on Christmas cards. We all (well, most of us it seems) wait until the last month or so before Christmas to get started on our cards. With everything else going on at that time of year we often feel rushed and may or may not get all our cards completed. I usually have to buy a box of cards to help fulfill my list. Not this year! By the time December gets here I will have at least 12 cards completed (probably more). Each month a different one of us will host the 12 Kits of Christmas, providing a kit for each of the other 11 ladies whom Renee has asked to participate. This month Renee started us off right with a beautiful kit full of die cuts and ribbons that I don't already have. It was so much fun to create with PTI's In The Meadow and the cool window die!
Another goal I had this year was to make my Christmas cards more mailable. Well, I blew it on this card:) That window just really made want to create depth and dimension behind it as if you are looking out your living room window.
Maybe next month!
Here is a photo of the kit contents. The only thing I added that was not included in the kit was some glitter, the Peace die cut, and a little stamping on the window. Renee really filled her kit with so many wonderful pieces to choose from. I'm sure you will see more pieces pop up on future cards!
Now check out what all of the other ladies have made with their kits and if you leave a comment on each blog you will be entered to win a really great prize from Renee!!
I just received the February kit from Cathy!
