Yuletide Blessings

.. can you even believe the title of this post? I SURE CAN'T!!

Regardless, I am MORE than happy to recieve a push in the direction of making my Christmas cards. It's gotta be started sooner or later, right? I hate the stress of rushing towards the end of November, and being totally overwhelmed with the number you have to make!!

Onwards I say, let's have Christmas in August!!

I've started with some delicious papers from the new First Edition Silent Night paper stack. Then, I die cut a bunch of My Favorite Things Winter Wreath from green and pale grey cardstock to layer up. After that, I die cut some buttons, a bow and some postage stamp edges (all from MFT) from Cherry Cobbler cardstock for embellishing. 

I then added some blue and pale yellow buttons with twine and added some faux stitching.

It looks quick and easy.. and it is. If you don't hand stitch all of the buttons on. What a FAFF!! I cannot help myself though. I hate the look of an 'empty' button, I think they look totally unfinished. So.. on I will trudge hand stitching/threading buttons! :) 

Thanks for stopping by today!
I hope I have encouraged you to get cracking with your Christmas cards. xo
