Hi everyone! I didn't get much crafting done this past week other than decorating an envelope for a Christmas card. It was kind of an up and down week--some good things and some not so good things. I did spend most of the day yesterday decorating the Christmas tree but still have the rest of the house to make festive. Anyway, I have two Christmas cards to share today.
This first card uses papers from Little Yellow Bicycle 6x6 Once Upon a Christmas paper pad. I decided to make a tag to decorate the card. I used some white chalk ink from Ingvild Bolme to edge the pattern paper before attaching it to the card base. I then layered a piece of white lace onto the paper. A snowflake stamp from Hampton Art was used for the background of the tag. I cut out some banners from one of the pattern papers and adhered them with foam squares to the tag. A bit of green trim was glued to the bottom edge of the tag. A K&Co layered sticker, Recollection gold beads and a bit of red ribbon finished off the tag which was attached to the card with more foam squares by Therm-o-Web. The snowflakes were made from a Marvy punch.
The next card is made with papers from Melissa Frances. I cut a piece of Holly paper and attached it to the card base. I wrapped a piece of cream twill around it and tied it in a bow. The snow couple was cut from a sheet of Frosty paper and attached to the postage frame that I painted white and made it sparkle with Martha Stewart glitter. A touch of Stickles was applied to the holly on the snowman's hat and the snowgirl's bouquet. Then I tied a Melissa France candy cane and little snow-coated bells with baker's twine to the bow. A PTI sentiment stamped to a tag finished this one off.
I need to get crafting this week so I'll have something to share soon. I've kept to my one New Year's resolution to craft something at least once a week; and so far, I've managed to do that. Thanks so much for stopping by and know that I appreciate all your sweet comments. Have a wonderful week!
