Last December, for the first time ever, I sent out every single Christmas card I had in my stash and actually had to make a few last-minute cards. I am seriously not a fan of the last-minute Christmas card hustle. Yikes…So this year I am determined to make sure that I’m making Christmas cards throughout the year so that I’m stocked and ready to go come December 1st!
But sometimes it gets a little boring making Christmas cards (especially in January!) so I wanted to come up with something different and thought it’d be fun to include my crafty friends! Each month a crafty friend and I will send each other something to help make a Christmas card…it might be a watercolored panel, a few die-cut images, a few stamped images, embellishments, etc. We will also use the same items to create our own card and we won’t share what we’ve created with each other until after the cards are finished. After each month’s Crafty Christmas Collaboration I’ll add links below so that you can find them easily!

I also wanted to find a way to include as many crafty friends as I could so I’m including a link-up that will last ALL year long! Please use my cards or any of my previous guests’ cards as your inspiration and link-up a holiday card! You can use the color schemes, layouts, specific stamps and dies, or techniques for your inspiration. Include the Crafty Christmas Collaboration badge at the top of this post in your post and link to the month you’re using for inspiration for a chance to be included in the big Christmas giveaway. After the final post on December 25th, 2017 one lucky entry will win a $100 gift card to the crafty store of their choice!
