Card for 40 (and more) Weeks Until Christmas 2015

Below are my cards for six weeks worth of Christmas cards: 40, 39, 36, 35, 34 and 33 weeks (I managed to eek out cards for weeks 38 and 37). I lost my way a bit and had not been creating at least one Christmas card each week. Life is just too busy. I am certain I am not the only one that feels that way. Between what we have to do (work for pay, sleep to remain healthy, work at home doing childcare, cleaning, cooking, clean-up, etc.) and what we want to do (craft, travel, etc.), it seems like there are not enough hours in the day.

The 40 weeks card should have been posted as long ago as Friday, March 20. Wow, that was 8 weeks ago. And posting 6 weeks worth of cards only takes me to Friday, May 8 so I have not caught up yet. Since I knew I need to knock out several Christmas cards quickly, I decided to try this one-sheet wonder idea I have been hearing about for months (or longer), but had not yet tried.

A quick one sheet wonder search yielded many results. For my first try of this idea I decided to go with the template and instructions by Deb Valder at Unique One Sheet Wonder using Springtime Hello with Deb Valder. I selected Deb's template because it starts with a 6" x 6" focal and creates 6 cards.

I ended up not following Deb's card templates exactly because I selected a directional print (I did not watch her video before cutting). In addition, I did not find her post with the still photos until my cards were assembled, but due to the directional print, I would not have been able to follow the them exactly anyway.

I used several supplies from my stash to create my cards:
