In my defense, handmade Christmas cards don't happen overnight..... nope, they happen over many nights!
So, gather your holiday papers and let's get started! I used Chalkboard Cheer.
And paired it with our Simple Surfaces deck because I am in love with glitter prints... especially on vellum!
You can see what I mean on this card. I punched a window in the vellum to be like an ornament. The glittering is done with the Adhesive Glitter Sheets cut into narrow strips using my paper trimmer.
My next card uses the vellum to create a frosty window pane. It was a tiny-bit tricky to secure the strung wooden snowflakes, but a little persistence got the job done! For the prettiest look, sandwich the vellum and strings under the patterned cardstock but over the card base. That way, when one opens the card, the inside is nice and neat.
My last card doesn't use any vellum, but one of the glitter-printed cardstocks from the Simple Surfaces deck instead. I love stringing the chipboard alphas on the gold cord to spell out short messages. It's a favorite technique! The glitter sticker is just cut from the adhesive glitter sheets with scissors. Love that stuff!!
I have lots more cards to make. Maybe my candy corn sugar rush will come in handy afterall!
