Mass Production

Since I have an unexpected free afternoon I thought I would get on with some projects for Christmas. One plan is to give handmade gifts this year where possible to the many people in our lives who help, particularly at school, but also at church. So I made a start with 3 sets of 3 cards, 9 identical cards and envelopes in total.

The Baroque Motifs stamps, and Ruby Red and Sage Shadow card are by Stampin' Up, patterned paper by Kaisercraft (a perfect match with the stamps, inks and cardstock!) and ribbon from the $2 shop. I'm not really fond of ruby red, so this project also helps to using up my stash of ruby red I bought once accidentally! I don't own the Ruby Red inkpad, but the Perfect Pumpkin did the job just fine!

I will package these in cellophane and ribbon, I think.

Three sets down and three to go for the particular helpers I have in mind. And it's still only October. Woohoo!
