Easy Christmas Card

Hey everyone!

Some of you may know, but I was totally MIA all last week! The blog posted automatically so you had no idea huh? ;) I enjoyed a wonderful Disney Cruise with my entire family! It was so much fun...I will tell you more about it on Wednesday :)

I wanted to share a quick EASY Christmas card that you could make...if you haven't even thought about making cards yet...because time is running out!


I used the awesome Christmas & Winter Stack that is out right now. Kinda my "go-to" stack this season!



A few different patterned papers, a punch and some ribbon and that's it! I know there are lots of incredibly detailed cards out there right now. But sometimes, simple is better when you are making a handful at a time! I hope each of you do something this season to put a little handmade love into your holidays. Cards, tags...anything! I am making LOTS this year :)

I have a few winners to send some stacks to from the last 2 weeks! Congratulations to:

I love this little tree! I can see it with glittered paper scattered through it, or using buttons with glitter :) Thanks for the cute idea, Erin!

Kathy said...

Ooh, Susan's sketches are always fantastic, and I love what you created with it! Great color scheme! This month, I am going to be sure to get my entry in on time!!!

My Christmas wish list got a lot longer. : )


Send me your addresses!! Remember, each comment on ANY blog post throughout the week gets you entered into the giveaway!!

Ok, back to playing catch up!! Love vacation but I kinda do love getting back into my routine once I am home. See you back here on Wednesday!

  25. I never have enough time to get Handmade cards made for Christmas. I usually just get a photo one made and mailed. This one is simple so maybe for a few extra special people this could be done :) thanks!!

  34. I did a similar thing with our Christmas cards this year. Metallic red cards, cutouts from the Chirstmas & Winter stack and a little glitter to highlight a few words or pictures on the cards. Simple but cute!
