Please don't hate me for saying it.
But can you believe it? I have to admit that I'm usually the last person to start thinking about Christmas and getting ready for the holidays. But, I'm hoping to get a head start on it this year and be a bit more organized. (famous last words huh? LOL! :))
Plus I've already got a head start because I was able to create some holiday cards using the amazing new December Daily collection. This release is absolutely gorgeous!
The first card I created is more on the traditional & classic side. I used the Red Snowflake/Chevron (Simple Basics) as the background base for my card.
Then added a 3x4 journal card, large sticker, brad and some ribbon to complete the look.
My second card some of the Blue Snowflake/Chevron (Simple Basics) paper. I just love the combination of red & blue . It's so bright & cheerful.
The 3x4 Journaling Cards really add some visual interest & color the front of the card. I also added a few stickers for dimension (by adhering them with foam squares).
On the inside of the card I added a few more stickers.
My last card makes me smile. There are some super cute sayings & quotes on the 3x4 journal cards and I had to use one of them.
Hopefully I've inspired you a bit with your christmas card making for the upcoming holidays.
