Christmas cards!


This year I had a pretty good stash of cards that I made throughout the year so I didn’t really need to do a big mass production like I normally do (which was good!) but I did need to make about 20 cards and I came up with this quick and cute design, which I will be repurposing for a different card next month.  This is EASY…let me tell you.  I modified the standard gate card a bit so that when I folded it there would be a bit of an overlap.  These adorable snowmen (also available in blue!) come with adhesive and glitter already.  I know, I’m a cheater.  I used my Bo-Bunny Flex ruler to draw the curve on the kraft paper, cut along the line and then layered a panel of red behind it and freehand cut the scallop with my scissors.  The bottom panel is a white panel embossed with my A2 Snowflake folder.  The snowman sits on a tag made from Circle Nesties.  To finish it off I stamped my greeting (after curving it on my block to mirror the curve in the kraft paper) from It’s A Snow Day in Palette L’Amour Red and snowflakes from the same set in Palette New Canvas.


Here’s a shot of it partially open so you can see how it goes together. 

I hope you’re gotten all your cards out and are leaving some time to actually enjoy things this holiday season!  Thanks for stopping by!
