Christmas Cards by Mary Ann

We've got another week full of incredible, beautiful and festive cards to share with you. We hope that you'll join us this week as you will find many, many ideas to create your own holiday cards. And if you've already finished & mailed yours off then perhaps you'll want to bookmark & save some ideas for next years' cards.

Today we have 
sharing some fabulous designs for holiday cards.


I love making handmade Christmas cards to add to gifts and also send in the mail. It's a perfect way to use those left over scraps that we all end up with!! Here are two ideas for cards, both made with left over scraps.

Cut strips of two different patterned papers, cut to various sizes and layer into tree shape.


Add tree trunk and star for tree topper and small brad daddies covered with coordinationg paper to look like ornaments.

Cut ornament shape with electronic die cutting machine, or draw by hand and cut.  Add small strip of coordinationg paper to center of card and machine stitching if desired.  Layer die cut Santa and snowflake and add to card with foam tape for dimension.
Add gold glitter or Stickles to top of card to resemble ornament cap. 
Supplies Used: papers - Christmas Joy, Warm Wishes, Snowdrift, Pick of the Patch, Purse-onality, Rejoice Die Cuts, Happy Holiday Sticker Stacker, cardstock, gold Stickles, foam tape.

Great ideas. WE all have lots of scrap paper so that is a great way to use them. Have to remember that for next years Christmas cards and tags.
