Jesus Is The Reason For The Season Cards

"Jesus Is The Reason For The Season" stamp is from "All God's Children" stampset from Stampin-up... I'm not certain if it is still available. I use many of the stamps from this set for Sunday school. I'm still trying to make enough cards to give out this year and I am getting there. The hard part is writing out messages for all cards and addressing the envelopes. OY VAY! I get writers cramp after doing only 25 or so! My uncle sent me a card this year and he put it through his printer with messages for everyone - he has really bad arthritus and cannot write out all his cards. You can't exactly do that with handmade cards unless you put it through your printer before you have embellished the cards. That might be a good thing to keep in mind for next year.
For these cards I used some of my left over scraps from my Michael's Christmas Slab paper. I also ran it through my cuddlebug to emboss the circles in the background. I love that simple little machine but I must admit it does hurt my wrist after awhile, only because I am making so many cards! Well enjoy the cards!
Happy creating everyone!

Other ideas for the inside....
*print off a liner for your cards... print a half piece of printer paper with a sentiment on the bottom half. Trim to smaller than your card and use adhesive hear the fold to stick it in your card
*print something from your computer and use fancy scissors (or your Nestabilities) to cut it out

Also, try doing labels on your computer instead of hand writing all of the addresses on the envelopes

Thanks Nancy. I know I should have printed off labels on the computer. I'm too busy!

I love the combination of the embossing and the scalloped edges on this card!
