Christmas Cards and Give Away

Recently I won a gift certificate to Stamplorations and on their website they featured some card fronts. I chose to buy the A2 size ones in Christmas designs since I usually make 100 or more cards each year to send out. And I thought this would take half of the work out of making them if I used these card fronts. So today I am featuring just one of the designs that came in the packet. I had ordered five packets so I did end up with five cards like this one I am showing. If you are interested check them out at Stamplorations. Mine is the Quick Cards 2 set.



These card fronts are so beautiful. I only added the sentiment and mounted the design to a white card base. They also feature them in slimline designs for Christmas and also carry card fronts for other occasions then Christmas. The sentiment I chose to use is from the Stamplorations Christmas Baubles stamp set. This design could be used in a vertical or horizontal way so it is quite versatile. Also I am sure you could dress it up with glitter or gems but I went the clean and simple route and used it just as it was.

Some other day I will feature another of the designs in the set. But today I just worked on this set. I am so happy with them that I am offering a set of these card fronts as a give away. You see as a thank you I was sent an extra set. So just leave a comment and then on April 20th I will pick a winner by putting the names in a hat.

I have been so fortunate these last few months with getting past this cancer thing, and for receiving so many great prize packages. I wanted to pay it back just a teeny bit. I might do another give away another day.

Thanks for visiting and I wish you a great weekend.

God bless, Verna

The card front image from Stamplorations looks fabulous and no wonder you didn't want to do anything, except add the sentiment Verna. Congratulations too with the win x.

Aren't they just beautiful card fronts- and so lovely and thick Verna. I am going to add them to my Wish List for Christmas this year as they came out too late for posting last year. Perfectly CAS for mass production. Love it.

What a generous and fab way to give back. I am here to just tell you that I am so glad that your cancer is gone and that you are better. Prayers work! I love this quick and easy card too and can see why you didn't need to add a thing. If you pick my name. please pass it on to the next person. That is my way of paying it forward.
