The busy woman's Christmas card collection.

Happy World card making day! 
Most people wouldn't know that 4 October is celebrated world wide for card making. It's an opportunity for us all to make a few cards to give away and share the love.
To help us celebrate Stampin' Up! is offering a great special for WCMD, its a good excuse for us to get some great products at a discount to celebrate the day! 
And hopefully you'll get a chance to make a card for someone, too.
This is a quick sale - it's only available until Monday, October 6th
To celebrate World Card Making day, we are offering various specials. 
There's 15% off all Classic inkpads - all colours! 
Also 15% off mixed cardstock A4 packs, Whisper White cardstock, envelopes and Fast Fuse Adhesive.
Even better, there's 20% off 5 different stamp sets. !!!
To see what's on sale, the best way is to look at the online shopon the website here.
 You can order directly online or if you prefer email and let me know what you'd like and I can organise it for you.
Ok so where's the card you ask?
I've just realised its like October and I am very short of Christmas cards which I like to start sending out in November.
Solution: create a bundle of cards that can be made up at night in less than an hour.
It must have fewer than 5 steps. ( stamp, punch, cut, and stick).
Here's my first attempt. 
Step 1. Emboss the lost lagoon cardstock with polka dots embossing on lost lagoon cardstock.
Step 2. Punch a tag top onto a 2" piece of whisper white CS. 
Step 3. Stamp "Holiday Home" in Mossy Meadow and trees, reindeer, snowman in Lost Lagoon ink.
Step 4. Cut strips of silver glimmer paper for the chimney top, roof and base of tag.
Step 5. Cut ribbons, attach and glue it all together with Tombow liquid glue.
You could easily make ten or more of these cards in a night and be well on your way to a nice pack of Christmas cards to send out to friends and family next month.
