I know, we just got finished with Christmas and the whole holiday thing but I decided to do some Christmas cards for this blog post. So here they go:
First I chose Seasons Greetings Tree because I like how they punched out several scalloped circles, glued them together and trimmed them into a tree shape. I like more traditional Christmas colors, so I chose different paper for my version.
Card is 4 1/2 by 4 1/2
Supplies used: cardstock - kraft, 4 shades of green, shimmer blue; patterned paper - Forest and Shiver in Figgy Pudding by Basic Gray ; green velvet ribbon - Michael's; star button - my stash; red bakers twine - Papertrey Inc. ; rub on - winter holidays wordage - Making Memories ; snowflake metal charm - Making Memories; border punch - EK Success .
For the second card I picked Deck The Halls. Their version is adorable, but again I went with a more traditional color theme. I also chose to use metal charms for the ornaments.
Card is 5 X 6 /12
Supplies used: cardstock - white; patterned paper - Christmas - Kissing Santa Claus by American Crafts and scrap from my paper stash; Holiday Chip toppers - Bazill ; bakers twine - Papertrey Inc. ; Christmas variety eyelet charms - Making Memories ; border punch - Martha Stewart.
For card #3 I chose Be Merry. It inspired me to make this cute card with Basic Grey's new line for this Christmas called Jovial!
Card is 5 X 6 1/2
Supplies used:cardstock - green and white; patterned paper - crushed velvet and blizzard from Jovial by Basic Grey ; die cut journal card - Jovial by Basic Grey; rub on - Yuletide by K&Compnay ; Ribbon - Oasis by SEI .
Last for today I picked Home Sweet Holidays which is so cute! It encouraged me to come up with this:
