Handmade Christmas Card

It's never too early to make Christmas Cards.  I love making and sending homemade cards, and it's always a great project to do with the kids.
Here is one of my recent creations.

Items Used:
Brown Craft Paper
Scrap Paper
Scrapbook Paper 
Hole Punch
Glitter Glue
White Glue
Glue Stick
Colored Fine Tip Markers
3D Fabric Paint

For the card itself I used a piece of paper I made using brown craft paper, Multicolored Angel Wings, and Gold Dust.  The paper I used for the tree is made from some scrap paper and The Multicolored Angel Wings.  I first attached the tree to the card with a glue stick.  Then I added the decorations made from the scrapbook paper and ribbon using white glue.  I topped the tree with a gold star.  At the bottom I added some presents using scrapbook paper and 3D fabric paint and a tree skirt made from embossed scrapbook paper.  i attached those with the glue stick.

On  the inside I added a handwritten greeting and some presents using scrapbook paper and colored fine tip markers.

  2. Love the card, and it's simple enough to consider as a project for my upcoming art/craft group at the local mental health drop in center!!
