Christmas Already!

Hello! Well Halloween has been over for a few days now and I am already in the Christmas spirit! Yes, I am one of those annoying Christmas people who LOVES cheesy holiday movies, puts my decorations up early, and listens to Christmas music until January is over. So naturally, I have a couple of holiday themed cards to show you today!! I will be breaking down the card I posted yesterday as well as one more card I made with the same theme. Now I am typically a mass photo card person around this time of year so any Christmas cards I make, I will be using alongside of hostess gifts, etc. Let’s dive in! Here’s numero uno: >>

To make this card, I first embossed a tag from a past Studio Calico card kit with brown powder and a Hero Arts woodgrain stamp. I attached a paper pieced holly leaf to it with a bit of twine and set them aside. I used dimensional adhesive to attach a trimmed slice of green textured cardstock to the kraft card base (from Papertrey Ink) and adhered the tag and holly on top of it. I finished it off with a red die cut ornament on the left side and I was finished! I love how this card turned out, I think it is so fun! Onto numero dos! >>

This is a SUPER simple card! To make it I embossed gold woodgrain on the entire PTI kraft card base first. I cut and adhered pieces of solar white cardstock (also from Papertrey Ink) and green textured cardstock together and then onto the card base. And finally, I attached the die cut “JOY” on top with dimensional adhesive. Anddddd… done! SO simple, right?

Well, that’s all I have for you today! Have a wonderful week and I will see you next Tuesday! Happy creating!
