Cottage Christmas: Card Inspiration

It's never too early to start making those cards. I of course wait until December 1st to start mine and then I can't find the paper I need and I'm killing myself to get them all done and mailed on time. So I challenge everyone to try coming up with their Holiday Cards early. Only six months before December 25th...and you'll thank me later!!

And don't forget about our July Sketch...it's a darling card sketch by Tammy Wark and would be super cute as a Christmas card. You have until July 25th to participate in the sketch challenge!!



Here's some fun ideas from our design team using the Cottage Christmas Collection to make cards!



Sparkling Noel Card 

Tag Card
by Erin

Happy Holidays

Season Jolly Card

Mr & Mrs Claus
Blinged Out Season to be Jolly 
Merry Christmas Deer
by Renata


Ornamental Card
by Tomomi

i-top Flower Holiday Card
by Robyn
Ornament Card 

Winner, winner...wanna be a winner?? 
Yesterday's blog winner is REBECCA. Congrats and we hope you enjoy playing with the new Cottage Christmas line!

Now for YOUR chance to win today's blog post giveaway. Make the Imaginisce Pledge that you will start making the holiday cards BEFORE November this year and visit our online gallery and tell us which Cottage Christmas crafting idea caught your eye!!

I will START making cards very soon :) I love the TAG Christmas CARD very CUTE!!!

Bonnie said...

I will start making my cards in the next couple weeks (or as soon as I get my cottage christmas paper). The "our home" layout with that YUMMY gingerbread house jumps out at me but there are sooo many more that I love too.

Jamie said...

I will start making my christmas cards in November this year!!

Simple Sugar said...

I, Elle, promise to start making my holiday cards BEFORE November this year! ....and I think I will make the "CC Candy Tins" and "CC Cookie Tins" too!

Melinda AKA medialady said...

I pledge to start before November!!!
I love the CC Candy Can and will use this as an example for some of my gift giving!

Laurie! said...

I am LOVING the Christmas card inspiration today. I make my own Christmas cards every year and this post is being favorited so that I can go back BEFORE November and get inspired with design. :) I love the idea of using tags on the card and I really like the first card on this post, although I might put a picture of me and the hubs where the snowflake is. I also really like the jar of mints in the idea gallery. You could fill that jar with anything and I love giving homemade and food items as gifts. Hmm...

Cheerios626 said...

I WILL start, and I have!! I am committing myself to try and use up last years leftovers from my paper stash so I can make way for all the new ones coming out!!! I checked out the gallery and LOVE the Candy Can, Soooo cute!

clnapier07 said...

I will definately start before November. I can't wait to get my hands on Cottage Christmas.I love the Peppermint candy tin and the snowglobe. Also, I love the tag card and sparkling noel card on the blog. Thanks.

First thing that caught my eye was: CC Baking Cookies by Sam Hauzer!

I really enjoyed looking at all of the projects in the gallery. The Countdown Calendar caught my eye! What a cute idea! My 3 1/2 year old loves the candy can. She said I must make her one! She loves candy!

paperpapier said...

i love Tis The Season by Sarah. The card is splendid!

Elaine said...

I loved all the cards and I will make christmas card earlier this year. But the project I most loved was the snow globe. I wanna do that too!

Vanessa Glass said...

I will start making my Christmas cards before November. I actually made a few already!

The online gallery was full of awesome projects, but I really loved the CC Snowy house. I would really love to make something like that!

Eveline said...

That tag card by Erin is brilliant. And the rest is not too bad either;)
I always mean to start early with my Christmas cards but somehow I never do.
Eveline.

Janette said...

I will top that and say i have already started working on mine =). I love that candy can, and so do my kids!

cinthia said...

I have to say that is a big challenge to get organized about the christmas card, but I trully intend to get all my cards done before the end of october!

Kelly English said...

I love the first Christmas layout. It just draws your eye right in to that adorable picture of the baby girl.

Nicole Laird said...

I'm always trying to get ahead on things! Being a single mommy to four doesn't leave me a lot of time....so, I do things when I can! lol

My 2 faves were the "First Christmas" layout (I'm a sucker for baby girls!) and the gift box! :0)

Samantha T. said...

That's an easy pledge for me, I always start early! There are a lot of great ideas there but the Christmas Countdown Calendar and the CC Holiday Traditions Book really caught my eye.

I have started working on my cards already for this year!

I love the CC snowglobe, it's super cute!

The cottage christmas book and the tag card both attracted me. What great projects and beautiful paper.

Jess said...

Unfortunately my Christmas card making supplies didn't come with me on my recent move but I will have to be sure to pick them up because I'm now inspired to get started on my Christmas card making. I love the CC Candy Can! I know my sister would love something like that for her desk at work!

Ms. Jen said...

I promise to start my cards early this year!! WOW, there's some amazing projects on your gallery! There's several that I really like but the one that I think really caught my eye was the Traditions album. I love the simplicity of it, yet it's got ton's of embellishments too. I think I may have to do something like this for my mom-in-law. Very cool. Thanks

Lesley from WI said...

I am so going to try to get to my cards in November. Last year I did them two weeks before Christmas and decided that was not fun. I love the Candy Can & the Tree Box! Super cute.

Me, Myself and I.... said...
