Are you enjoying our series of Three Christmas Cards posts this year? I hope so! Here's three MORE holiday card ideas for you! It's definitely NOT too late to make your own greeting cards in 2021... or have fun making handmade Christmas thank you cards for AFTER the festivities!
My first card for this jam session is a black and white beauty with mixed metallics--I wish the bling showed up in the photos!! it has brushed champagne gold foil for the mat, silver foil embossing on the woodgrain paper, an iridescent sheen on the laser-cut snowflakes, and champagne rhinestones. Wow! Add in the texture from the gingham ribbon and the music-embossed background and this one is a super stunner!
Our next card is 180 degrees different! Don't you love how versatile stamping is?
For this card I went with a clean country look in Merry Merlot, cream, gold and Crumb Cake. I just love that twine-wrapped star diecut--confession time, I bought the entire Tidings of Christmas bundle just because of that one image and matching die!--and I've made several designs with it.
I hope to make some tree ornaments with that star before the season is over, too. I have a brand new studio and my own Christmas tree for the very first time, and you can guess how I'm decorating it--with handmade ornaments and garlands!
Our last card for this post uses Snowman Season, an oldie but goodie. I love this image of the snowman and his little kid snowman playing in the snow! We used Evening Evergreen, Real Red and Soft Succulent when we made this card in Christmas Club this year. It's fun to have a break from the "formal" cards and make some lighthearted ones sometimes, too.
It's almost time for our last set of three completely different ideas... for December is now upon us! If you need help settling on a design for your personal holiday cards this year, contact me! There's something for everyone in this year's mini catalog.
