Holly Jolly Christmas Checklist
Now, are the lyrics from the song, “It’s a Holly Jolly Christmas time, the best time of year” stuck in your head? Today, I saw someplace that it was only 83 sleeps until that Holly Jolly Christmas. I know that sounds like a long time, however, there is lots of preparations that have to happen before you get there.
One of the preparations is to get your Christmas cards done. It takes time to design and create the cards. Here is a checklist of things you need to do before you get all those Christmas and Holidays finished.
- Design your card. Maybe you have seen a card that you can copy or maybe it was an idea on Pinterest, or even one through the 12 Days of Christmas email. (If you haven’t signed up for my mail list, its not too late. You can sign up HERE.
- Once you have your design, you need the products to create the card. You need to decide the stamp set, the colour of card stock and ink you will use, any designer series paper you may want to incorporate and of course any embellishments. If you need any supplies, you can order from my ONLINE STORE.
- When you have your supplies, it’s now time to start the creation process. This is truly the fun part. Get together with a couple of friends and make an afternoon of it. What could be more fun, stamping, creating, great conversation with friends, and maybe some goodies.
- Lastly, if you don’t have time to do Steps 1-3, sign up for my Christmas Card Creativity class. You can find all the details HERE.

Did you notice the fringe on the bottom of the Holly Jolly Christmas card? It was created using a piece of Glassine Sheet. Using the Fringe scissors, cut a fringe along both sides of the strip. It’s important that you don’t cut all the way through from one side to the other. Otherwise, you will just have strips of Glassine paper. To finish the fringed strip off, place a strip of Gold Foil paper down the middle .
