Get Cracking on Christmas 2021 - August

Hi Everyone,

Can you believe it's August already? Christmas is fast approaching, and if you still haven't started on your Christmas cards, why don't you join us, to build up your stash in advance? If you are new to Get Cracking on Christmas, please check out Jenn's blog here - she is the master-mind behind this initiative, and is the best one to explain it! :o)

Today's cards are real stunners, although in the photos they maybe don't look that nice - I find shimmery cards really hard to photograph, I'm sorry! 

This fantastic Tree of Lights stencil by Trinity Stamps is a real must have in your Christmas stash, I believe - it helps creating gorgeous cards and timeless designs in no time! I was planning on adding a simple strip with a sentiment on top of the Christmas trees, but I honestly think that the images speak for themselves - I will make sure to add some nice stamped sentiments inside instead!

What I believe really finishes these cards off are the gorgeous colourful baubles - not only do they add some colour & texture, but they also help with filling up some areas that I thought looked perhaps a bit empty.

Which colour do you like best?

In case you're looking for more inspiration with this stencil, I also made a non-traditional card with it last year, which you can see here.

Stay safe and crafty,
