I really haven't been in the mood to make anything Christmasy but forced myself since I'll be doing 2 craft shows just before the holidays, so I'll be needing a lot of Christmas cards. So I made up my mind to finally start on this project.... and so many things went wrong! First the holly leaves. I have a STACK of Cricut cartridges and NONE of them had a decent cut for the leaves. So these are all hand cut, no template or pattern - just freehand. Then the buttons. I needed 18 red ones. I had 16. I have about 200!! white ones so I laid 18 of them out on paper and covered them in red dye and let them soak overnight. Worked out great, even gave the buttons a nice glossy look.
So in the end, this card set got finished and I'll be waiting a little longer before I do any more Christmas projects.
