started making my Christmas cards

I did some preliminary stamping and embossing on some of the cut-outs I'll be using. I signed up for the exchange over at the Kitchen Table. It would be nice if we exchanged here also.

I wanted to give myself plenty of time to make them.

I'm feeling guiltier and guiltier every time I see this post, Minnie! I'm signed up for the KT exchange, too. Every time I decide on a design, I see or think of a different one in a day or so. I keep dithering!!!

I just made my mind up and then did it assembly line fashion. First stamped and sprinkled with glitter then cooked them all. then made the cut outs. I did the inside stamping first to make sure that was ok then did the layering on the front etc. I hate to finish the front and then have the inside go wrong!!

Minnie, that is a great tip to do the inside first, thanks.

I am first starting to do stamping and cards. I have made several pretty ones and messed up the inside. Bummer!

Have you ever done the paper tole art?
Another question, did you mail me a different address because I am having trouble sending mail to people with AOL address?
If so, either mail me again, or post here on this forum.
