The calendar says December, so that means that I am fully involved in all things Christmas. At the top of my list is Christmas cards. I always make my own, and this year I'm adding handmade paper made with Arnold Grummer's Papermaking Kit to the mix.
For the first card I embossed a piece of purple metallic cardstock and attached it to the front of a card blank. I used a liquid adhesive to attached a lavender snowflake cut with a Sizzix die.
For the second card I used my Zing electronic cutter to cut a filigree Christmas tree and two tags, one slightly larger. I used a snowflake border punch along the bottom of the card. I stamped Peace in gold and heat embossed with gold embossing powder. The reindeer is handmade paper cut with a Sizzix die. I had to bling up the reindeer's nose with a tiny red pearl.
Hope that you'll give these a try when you make your own Christmas cards. You can see more of my projects on my Create & Craft blog.
