Holly Santa!!!

Good morning. I'm happy finishing my Christmas cards. I really enjoyed to make cards this year. I learned lots of new stuff that I used in my cards and they looked way better than last year ones. This card is for another MFT wednesday Challenge. Here is the sketch:

I made four of them. At this point I have to make several of the same card, it is easier and faster and I don't have enough time to make one per person in my list. Here is the card:

Ok, I have to say, I bought the Mistletoe punch from Martha Stewart yesterday at Walmart and I thought it wouldn't look that good, but I wanted a Christmasy punch to go with a flower or snowflake... well... I'm in love with it. Here is a close up of how I used it:

 I don't know if you can tell but I also love to pierced my cards. I'm trying so hard with the sewing machine but I'm not that good so I pierce them. Here is a close up of it:

I know it is a lot of work but I love how the cards look with it. I didn't do that to the four cards, only the one that goes for the challenge. Sorry, but I don't have much time :).

For this card I used:

Cardstock: Whisper White and Cherry Cobler from SU
Designer Paper: O' Christmas Tree form Recollections
Stamps: From the old stamp set "Ho Ho Holidays" from SU
Accessories: Martha Stewart snowflake and mistletoe punches, brads from Michael's and a button from I don't know and of course the piercing tool from SU. Copic Markers for colouring and Memento Tuxedo Black ink to ink the image.

I love to do a different card for each person, but you're right, it's a lot of work. This year I did SCS's Christmas Card Challenge and it helped alot.
