Here Comes Santa

Who has time to make their own Christmas cards? Well, I love it, so it is not a hassle to make the time. Seriously, though, here is an easy and quick card to make. The layout is very simple. Only a few tools are required that most of us crafters have on hand.

The layout is super simple, which lends itself to making a bunch of them quickly. You can use the same layout and different papers to get a set of Christmas cards to send to everyone on your list. Of course, you’ll need to have some circle stickers or some other focal point for the outside and inside of the card. I used the chipboard and stickers sheet from the Echo Park collection, “Here Comes Santa Clause”. Instead, you could cut a smaller scalloped circle and stamp it with a greeting or image using acrylic or rubber stamps. If you don’t have that or don’t want to go to the trouble, here are two .png images you can use for free (one for front and one for inside)! Right click the image and choose save image as to save it to your computer.

I hope you give it a try, but most of all, I hope you have fun :0)

Fall Card using Scraps

All papercrafters end up with left over peices of paper called scraps. A great way to use them up is to cut them into strips and use them to design a card. That’s exactly what I did with this card:

Fall Card with Lights

If you want to wow them, then you have to make a light up card. When I think of fall, I always think of the beautiful gold, orange, and red colors that always give such a warm feeling…especially when light infuses them. The fall card below was made with the Chibitronics light kit. It’s easier than you think. The video below shows you how to do a simple circut, but Chibitronics has options for complex designs as well. Hope you enjoy it. Give it a try. It’s always so much fun creating something new.

Easy Handmade Christmas Cards

Christmas cards are my favorite. I love to create beautiful, ornate ones. I equally love making quick and easy ones. They are all fun to do, so why not give these a try? Remember, if you don’t have the same papers, use what you have. You can even use Christmas wrapping paper as a background and ribbon to take the place of the paper strips you see behind the focal images. Otherwise, feel free to purchase the paper.

Simple Fall Greeting Card

If you’re looking for something to quiet your mind, making cards is a great way to relax and enjoy yourself. Not feeling creative, you say? Let me give you hand. It’s quick and easy and FUN to use patterned paper to make a handmade greeting card. Check out the video below for instructions. If you don’t have the paper in the video, I have included links below so you can purchase it ( I am an affiliate for Amazon and Scrapbook.com). Or, use what you have on hand. For example, pick a larger print from what you have (like the pumpkin print paper you see in the video). Next, choose a solid, dotted or pin-striped pattern (like the orange paper you see in the video). Then, choose a decorative element like a ribbon, glitter paper, glitter washi-tape (like the gold washi-tape beneath the blue tag in the video). Finally, use another solid paper and clip the edges with a circle punch or cut with decorative edge scissors to create a tag for your card (like the blue tag in the video). That’s all there is to it!
