Christmas is my favorite time of year! I just love the smell of Christmas…cookies baking, a REAL Christmas tree in the house, cinnamon and spices, and hot chocolate on the stove! But, one of my favorite traditions is sending and receiving Christmas cards. My first letter ever written was addressed to Santa! I’m not really sure if that’s true, but I was obsessed with getting the address to the North Pole in the first grade. My teacher had a mailbox in the classroom where we “mailed” our letters to Santa. I sent him a lot of letters and they weren’t all about my Christmas list. I wanted details about life at the North Pole, Mrs. Claus (where did he meet her?), how many elves were there, what do reindeer really eat, does Rudolf really have a nose that lights up, and does he ever cut his beard? My teacher read a letter from Santa to our class before we left for the holidays. All of our questions were answered, (not all of mine, but the important ones) and I just knew he was REAL!
This Santa’s Workshop scene was my Christmas dream! (I would have been the kid with the ticket screaming, “Santa!!! Santa’s coming!!! like Will Ferrell in the movie Elf.)
Taylormadecards4u has a new digital kit for Christmas, Santa’s Workshop!
I’m using it to spread a little Christmas cheer with a gift card box full of Christmas cards!
If you are looking for a quick and easy handmade gift, check out this Gift Box Tutorial from Club Scrap! The instructions are so easy to follow and you can make several at a time to give to friends and family (or keep for yourself!). I printed out the Santa’s Workshop digital elements on 8.5×11 card stock and took things a step further resizing the two digital backgrounds in Photoshop Elements to nest perfectly on the cover.
I created a batch of Christmas cards to fit inside using this card formula from Club Scrap.
Using the assembly line method, I was able to create 6 gorgeous Christmas cards in about 30 minutes!
No stamping, just a little distress inking with Vintage Photo Distress ink around the edges and some Diamond Stickles for a sparkle!
