Are your holiday cards done yet?

We’re here to help over at Festive Friday where we’re celebrating Christmas (if you don’t know, it’s on December 25th). That means we’re looking for Christmas inspired projects. Of course, you’re free to add in the second element – Snowflakes. Or, if you don’t need or make Christmas cards, just make a design with snowflakes!

Play along at the Festive Friday Challenge - Earn Fest Points for free stuff! Find us @festivefridaychallenge or festivefridaychallenge.com. New challenges every other Friday! #cardchallenge

Looking for ideas – here’s a few:

  • Done with your Christmas cards? Good for you! Snap a pic and link it up.
  • Use the Design Team’s projects as inspiration to speed up your design process – you can eek out a few before it’s too late to send. We know you can! Share your CASE’d project with us we’d love to see your take on our projects.
  • Looking for something different? Make up a holiday garland – that would surely count for this challenge.
  • Or, perhaps you have some treat packaging you’re working on. ‘Tis the season of giving, so share what you’re sharing!

Don’t forget to leave a comment at the end of the post to qualify for my monthly giveaway!

This card is a classic red and green workup, wouldn’t you say? I love how this paper makes it super easy to whip out dozens of these cards in no time! This is my go-to card for the season. I do have a few other designs, but this one is getting the mass-production treatment for sure. 

Even my husband will help! He loves to run the Big Shot, so, guess who’s cutting out all of those ovals?! Even the assembly is simple enough that I will be able to get him to help with that too. 

Today’s project can be completed in just a few short steps. Earn the PDF tutorial by playing at Festive Friday and earning Fest Points that you can redeem for tutorials and other great prizes!

Be sure to check out Ann’s post this week. We’re trying something different over there and we’d like to know what you think!
