I only need you to make...

I would have a Christmas card list that is a mile long. I hate to leave anyone off. That does tend to get expensive, so this year my husband and I agreed that because money was tight that we wouldn't send cards. So I made only a few Christmas cards. Then yesterday he says "I need you to make 30 Christmas cards for the employees." and he needed them today. I don't think he had any idea of what he was asking. Most of my cards take at least 45 mins a piece to make. I ended up with this card that when mass produced took me 5 hours to make all 30 (of course I had to make the envelopes too). I W.I.S.Hed the sky, cuttlebuged them and sewed them to the card base. I stamped the angels with black stazon, watercolored the robes, added glitter to the wings and cut them out. I curled the wings so that there was some dimension. Craziness!!!!

  1. WOW!! There is NO way I could have pulled that off with such a beautiful card. I hope you made him help a little, HA! I know your busy with Christmas activity right now, but when you have time, I would love to get some pointers from you about sewing on paper. I just got a sewing machine just for this!

  2. Oh my goodness. How did you do all that in 5 hours. I am guessing that they loved them.. These are fabulous MariLynn. Way to go.

    Thanks for your sweet comment on my blog. I am beginning to feel better. To answer your question about the cow card...YES it is a Mutnik original..haha. We share a love of cows. I am blessed to have you all as friends. I have your pretty flower card right here on my table.. It is gorgeous..I still have your quilled snowflake card too. I framed it.. :) Have a wonderful holiday.

  3. Merry Christmas, Marilynn! Peace and joy to you and your family this Christmas! Holiday hugs!

  4. Oh MariLynn you are a saint to do that in such a short time, and make such a beautiful job of it - I don't think I would have complied if I had had that request with that time table!!
    Christmas blessings to you and yours
