White Pines Christmas Cards!

I haven't posted much lately because I haven't created much original artwork since going back to work full time. This month my club was using our White Pines Christmas papers to create layouts and cards. And this is the last month you can order this gorgeous paper!!

For the cards, we used our Workshop on the Go Card Kit which comes with everything you need to create 15 cards! All you need are basic supplies and ink!
Here is a photo of the cards as they are designed in the kit:

I made a simple change of using Colonial white cards and cardstock instead of the White and like it much better. Either combination will work beautifully!

On this card I substituted some Red Shimmer trim for the strip of Cranberry Cardstock. Everything is better with bling!

For this card, I simply turned over the pattern paper to show the Cranberry floral pattern instead of the trees. I also used New England Ivy ink for the tree and star outline instead of black.

And lastly, I used November's stamp of the month to create a few New Year's cards with this pattern, adding a little Gold Shimmer Trim for fun!

Christmas may be over....but you can order your kit NOW to make during the year so that you will be prepared for NEXT year! OR you can use this kit to create cards with any sentiment you desire - New Years, Birthday, Thank You, etc.

Click HERE to order any of our White Pines products before midnight on December 31st. After then, they will be gone!

Merry Christmas 2015!

Wishing you and your family a very Merry and Blessed Christmas!
