I Just Wanna KISS...

...actually, I am not so sure if it is KIS or KISS... I am rubbish with acronyms.  What am I waffling on about?   Well dear bloggers, I have been incredibly slatternly this year and haven't made many Xmas cards... I say every single year that "next year will be different"  and is it? NO!   Anyways, I decided to try my hand at "keeping it simple" and making some batches of cards.   Tis Tuesday so my day for DT at The Stamp Attic... the deets on how I made some batch cards are HERE and here's a sneaky peeking of one of them:




 I also made another card... using the same ingredients as the cards for my DT and I think this one is my fave.  I wrapped the Paper String through the card!  Oh yesh, finally I figured that if I wanted to wrap something straight onto the base card I just have to prick a hole in the fold!  How long have I been making cards huh?  I know, sometimes I astound myself at my incredible intelligence lol    




Anyways... tis a speedy post today because I am in batch-making mode... whilst I have bought cards (shock horror) I do want to make some... Christmas isn't Christmas without me haring about a few days before the final post!   Hope you have a nice day planned... I shall be the one in the corner covered in ink and snippets of Paper String lol   Thanks for looking... TTFN!

You can use either KIS or KISS(for Keep it Simple or alternatively Keep it Simple Stupid) so I think the first is the better option! Love your gorgeous cards, hope you get all your others made. Hugs, Anne x

Hi Hels, been over for a look and these cards are perfect, simple but gorgeous ideal for batch making at xmas, using the same ingrediants but altering the layout and colours is ideal. Emma

I think I need these gorgeous stamps for next year Hels. These cards are lovely - I was wondering if you already had the idea in your head or whether you made them up as you went along.

Hugs to you Sue Pxxx
