Intro: 12 Days of Christmas Cards: Day 1
I really like making handmade Christmas cards, I think it adds a nice touch, and tells the receiver that you really were thinking about them this holiday season. The problem is, who has time to make cards? Well, I do, but my social calendar is a little lacking... Ok, non existent. So for the rest of you, that actually do have a life, I made these cards as simple as possible. Today I am going to make a fun wreath card with embossed paper and snowflake punch outs. Here is how it came together:
Blank cards- generic
Embossed scrapbook paper- Brazzill Paper Co.
Stickers- Special Moments Scrapbooking
Ink- Colorbox in Bronze
Start with a blank card you can find at any craft store.
Cut a piece of your embossed background paper a little smaller than your card.
Gently rub your color over the paper with a stamp pad focusing on the edges with and working in a little
Then punch out a bunch of snowflakes with green paper and a snowflake punch.
Glue them to your paper in a circle, to form a wreath. Attach a piece of red ribbon to 'hang' the wreath.
Then I attached 2 poinsettia stickers layered on top of each other and secured with a brad.
FInally, stamp your title on a piece of white cardstock and ink the edges. Viola! A cute Handmade Christmas card.
