One of my favorite things to do on the most blazing days of the summer is to work on creating my Christmas cards. There is something really nice about working on wintery scenes when it’s 95 or more out, with humidity so thick you can see. So to start off I’m going the simply route with white paper and minimal embellishments.
This card is a bit of an illusion which makes it really neat, it’s a single sheet of white paper that’s run through a couple different Cuttlebug folders, scored on the Scor Pal and then attached to a piece of white cardstock to make it look as if it’s all one layer!
Ever have an oops with your Cuttlebug folder? I sure have and this was one of them. I ran this through and it got cut off and I didn’t want to just toss it. So I cut it in half, decorated the half and layered it onto a glossy white card base.
In case you haven’t noticed I LOVE this Lace Tree folder. I don’t know why they discontinued it, but boy am I glad my mom was willing to share hers with me! This one was just simple silver and sparkles.
Last but not least a little blue and white, just a splash of color to make the one snowflake pop and a little ribbon with the sentiment already printed on it, keeps it clean and simple.
This weeks supposed to be a hot one, so I’ll be back at the table chilling out and singing some Christmas carols!
Till next time..
