Assembly line Christmas Cards with digital images

Put together Christmas cards quickly.
I started with my digital images from Altered Pages. After printing and trimming them, I made mats to fit and card bases. Stacked them up-ready to produce!!
I got our the Christmas embellishments I might want to use.
 Have two favorite background stamps to jazz the plain cardstock up.  Then I got started!
 Below are just two examples of the beautiful cards that came out of my day of card making. There's no way I could post them all!
 These two images came from the collage sheet "Blue Christmas" I just love the vintage feel of them.

Entering Simon Says Christmas/Holiday Challenge.

I hope this will help you during this busy time to be able to get some cards done without stressing too bad!!  People secretly love receiving a handmade card.  I love having the time this year to do them.

Take the time to share Christ in the simple things you do for people this Christmas season.
God was thinking of us when he sent his one and only child to be born in this sinful world and then be crucified for OUR SINS. If you've never accepted Christ as your Savior-do it today!!  Celebrate his birth in true Child of God fashion this year!

Love in Christ,

DecoArt new Premium Acrylic Mixed Media Paint Home Project

Recycling and creating something new has always been one of my favorite things to do.   The square "shadow box" I've been saving for quite some time and now have forgotten what came in it.  It's part of packaging. The initial C I purchased from Joanne's. The "shadowbox" had a couple of layers in the bottom. Gesso, white acrylic, dry brushed black, titan buff. I used a small round brush to paint in the lines.   The new Premium Acrylic paint leaves behind a satin finish.  Really nice. The background -which is a recycled 16x20 canvas coated in white gesso, was painted with Americana Deep Burgundy. Once dry, I dry brushed some Titan Buff (Premium acrylic) randomly. I painted the C in black premium acrylic.  Glued it to the bottom right corner of the shadowbox with tacky glue. I used a whie Posca pen to write my favorite verse around the edges of the shadowbox.  I used Tacky glue and hot glue to adhere the flowers.  I like to use both. Hot glue helps it sti…
