Making Christmas Cards - Day 7

Whew!  I've spent the last week working on Christmas cards for hours and hours.  To date, I have a total of 161 cards.  My original goal was to make a card for each of the residents at a nursing home/rehab center that my husband used for physical therapy following surgeries.  I knew I needed no less than 85.  I've met my goal and have extras to send to a friend who "volunteered" to make 150 cards for two other nursing centers.

 Swiss Dots embossing folder was used on the base.  The image is clip art found online.  I pop dotted it for dimension.  The sentiment was computer generated.
 This is a punch art card.  I embossed 2" circles and cut them in half for the collar. The half circles are pop dotted for dimension. The buttons are 1/2" circles with white gel pen dots.  The buckle is a 1" square with a 3/4" square punched out of the center.
The Christmas trees were cut with my Cameo.  I cut them 2" tall and embossed one with a Swiss Dot folder.  The 1 1/4" red strip was embossed with a Darice folder.  The sentiment was printed using Hallmark Car Studio software.

Each of these cards was inspired by ones seen online.

These all are great cards Linda. I have made 125 Christmas ornaments so far. But it has been a long time since I enjoyed making anything.
This year I just set me a place up in my LR and when I look over and want to make some I just plug the glue gun in.
