Welcome to Andi of Andi’s ABCs, who is kicking off this fun month of festive book reviews and guest posts! I’ve always loved Andi’s blog as well as the fun cards she posts online, so I was really excited when she offered to talk about her cards and make a holiday set for my readers! The giveaway will end in time for you to mail them out to your friends and family this month.

I’m so excited to take part in Jana’s, Bookish Little Christmas. This is Jana’s 6th year doing this feature and my first time guest posting.

For those of you that don’t know me I’m Andi from Andi’s ABCs. In January my blog will be 5 years old (no, I really can’t believe that!). Andi’s ABCs is my baby where I blog about my love of YA books, romance books, and my love of accessories and clothes. But I have another hobby that I fell in love with over a year ago and brings use to my post for Jana: Cards by Andrea S..

When Jana was looking for guest posters I knew I was going to bring my love of card making to her blog so here I am.

When sitting down to come up with a design I decided I wanted to do something simple. I flipped through my stamps and found three sets I wanted to use. These sets by no means go together but they ended up really working for the look I was going for.

I wanted to keep the card simple and use traditional holiday colors. Once I settled on Altenew’s Rouge and Silver Stone, and Gina K.’s Grass Green I was really excited to see how this card set would turn out.

Using my favorite black ink, VersaFine Onyx Black, I stamped the sentiment and the tree. I liked it without anything else, but I knew there was some sparkle that was needed. I scoured my stash and found some clear sequins which were the perfect addition.

And I finished the card off with a holiday sentiment.

If you want to see more cards like this that I have created check out my Etsy shop HERE. I have a variety of holiday and everyday cards available.

But this set; this set is for one of you. I’m giving away all 6 of these cards I made for readers of That Artsy Reader Girl’s blog. Sadly the giveaway is US only. Sorry international peeps, shipping is just too expensive at this time. The giveaway will end at 11:59EST on December 9th.

A huge thanks to Jana for having me. This was a lot of fun!

    I buy birthday cards, get well cards, anniversary cards, sympathy cards, thinking of you cards, and Christmas cards. I enjoy real notes to send to friends and family.

    I love Andi’s cards. I usually order photo cards from Shutterfly to send to family and friends.

    I buy cards at a the Dollar Tree for every occasion except for Christmas. For Christmas I buy a box of cards. I used to make Christmas cards but don’t do it anymore.

    I love sending out all sorts of cards, I usually stock up at B&N after the holiday, and scour their clearance bins. I also love buying the huge boxes of handmade cards at Costco.

    I used to send cards every year, and would either purchase them at Target or the like, but I’ve gotten out of the habit. I love receiving them!

    I buy nicely designed cards–they can be fancy cards or letterpress cards. Anything that’s nice!
