12 Kits of Christmas {December}

Sunday, December 30, 2012

This is our final kit of the year.  This kit was sent to us by Sharron.  What I love most about this kit is the variety of styles you can create from just one kit!  My first few cards are light and simple.  My last two are vibrant and modern.  The last card is my absolute favorite Christmas card I have made this year!


Sorry about the photos on the last 3 cards.  I wanted to send them out before Christmas so I had to photograph them after work (terrible natural light by the time I got home).

Even though this is the final kit of 2012, it is not the end. 
The 12 Kits will continue in 2013, but with a few changes!
I look forward to sharing these new changes with you on the last day of January!
If you'd like to see ALL of the cards from this year check out this Pinterest board.  Renee has kindly pinned all of this year's card there!


Supplies are too many to type here:)

  1. stunning designs Kara. I love the soft felt on the first one. Those mittens are adorable.

  2. Perfection, Kara! I love everything - the layered trees are awesome, and I love that you used that blue bird sooo perfectly. I wanted to use him but was at such a loss over what to do. But I am swooning over the yellow mittens card - fabulous! Happy New Year!

  3. Oh, Kara--these are all just perfection! I love the first card so much and cherish that I have it to enjoy in real life. Layering the trees was such an awesome idea and I adore your wonderful CAS design using the deer & birches. LOVE your last card! Everything is so beautifully layered and what a great way to use the blue birds! Have a very Happy New Year!!!

  4. GASP, oh, I love ALL these, girl! That last one is super-fab, though, just gorgeous! I hope you have a Happy New Year, my sweet friend! :) *hugs*

  5. SO much dimension on these - love all the layers... and the bitt perals on the mittens? swoon... my fave has to be tthe last one with all the goodies like a garland accross the front of the card!

  6. Kara, amazing cards, simply amazing! I love each and every one, they are all my favorites. So happy that I have lots of leftovers too! Your first card with the yellow mittens is so sweet with the pearl trim, just so classy. And your second card with the deer and trees, looks so peaceful and elegant. But that trio of stacked trees is just so clever, love the depth it gives your card. Your final card has so much wonderful detail sitting on that beautiful blue ribbon, stunning!

  8. You made so, so many pretty cards kara...I love them all, but I especially like the birch trees and regal looking deer. I just love that one! I also really love those layered trees...looks great paired up the the patterned paper colors. Great job, I really enjoyed all of your cards this year!

  9. Oh wow, Kara these are just stunning…. each one. Love the snowflakes with the mittens and pearls such warm cozy colors. The birch tree card looks just like it would in nature. The layout and greens in the last one are so CAS and elegant. I am looking forward to another fun year of the 12 kits too! This has been so much fun and I feel so blessed to be a part of it! Happy New Year to you and your family Kara!

  10. Kara all of your cards are stunning, you have such great style. love the fun felt and snowflake on your first card such great colours. The sweet deer scene is fantastic and the triple layer tree is brilliant! Those blue birds are amazing with that paper. Happy New Year my friend, I just know that 2013 is going to be an excellent year!

  11. Kara! Your cards are amazing! I'm seriously loving every single one. :) Those cute little mittens with the pearl trim, the gorgeous winter scene with the trees and deer, the clever way you stacked the trees, , and the fabulous layering of the die cuts on the last card. Simply incredible!

  12. Kara these are all gorgeous! I just love the little mittens and the deer card with the trees - I just got the tree die and can't wait to use it on some winter birthday cards.

  13. I love them all, Kara! Your execution, no matter what your style, is always clean and crisp and flawless!!

    All the best in the new year!

  14. I saw that pine branch die at my LSS the other day and wasn't sure about it. After seeing you use it, Kara, I think I need it!
    Fabulous cards, as always, my friend!
    Wishing you a wonderful 2013!

  15. All your cards are just incredible. You have such style, and can go from CAS to elegant and back in a jiffy. Love the sweet little trim you added to those felt mittens, the great scene you created with the deer, and all your layering on the last card. Happy new year! And, here's to the next 12 kits.

  16. Beautiful Kara!! I love the bright bold colors. I think the last may be my favorite, that blue is fantastic! But the yellow mittens in the first card are definitely a close runner up :)
