I did manage to finish making my Christmas cards for this year, only one design though, but I haven't finished addressing the envelopes because, of course, I forgot the labels that I had printed out at home. That's so typical of me, sigh. Once they're mailed, I'll post the card design I chose.
I also managed to make a card for this week's Make It Monday, over at Nichole Heady's Papertrey Ink blog, which is being hosted by Danielle Flanders. Ack! She's showing us how to add paint splatters to our projects. Just look at the gorgeous tags that she made!
After I had put my card together, I really didn't want to do it, oh no, not me. I liked my card just fine the way it was and wasn't anxious to potentially ruin it with splatters! But I did it and I actually like it so much better with the added detail. I practiced a bit on scratch paper and decided I was going bold, using the tap-tap method that Danielle demonstrated :)
