A few very early Christmas cards!

Jen challenged OWHers to create at least 5 Christmas cards a month for OWH so that we'll have a stash built up when they start asking for Christmas cards in mid-summer.  (Please hold onto your cards until then as we don't want to overwhelm shippers with cards to store now!)

I bought two large stacks of Christmas papers on clearance so I'd be prepared for this year's cards (and probably several years after that as well given that they both have 180 sheets).  I focused on the large images on certain pages when I made these cards.  They were super simple to put together, so I was able to make 32 cards in just two evenings.  :)  Several were inspired by Paula's Boot Camp on Colors!

  1. Great cards! Love the penguin one!

  2. Oh I love all of these! Way to use up your paper and make room for more. :D I love them all. Thanks for playing along with us at OWH! Happy boot-camping!!

  3. Nice job on all of these! I don't know if it's because they make me think of Christmas but red and green have always been my favorite 'Complementary' color combination. The Penguin is a great image choice for the Monochromatic design too! Thanks for sharing these.
