I’m finally making progress on Christmas cards. Last year I sent them out late, so this year, I wanted to be on top of it.
This is a great example of how quick and easy homemade cards can be. If you think you don’t have time to make holiday cards yourself, this is proof that you do!
I like working in assembly line fashion when I make a lot of cards. For this one, I did all the heat embossing at one time and left the cards to cool for a few days. Next, I created all the red background flags in one sitting and I cut all the twine to length. When it was time to assemble the cards, I grabbed a box of sentiments from K & Co that I’ve had for years – I think I picked them up at Michael’s – and put it all together.
I added slits on both sides of my card to thread the twine through. I didn’t want it coming off the card while it’s hanging up or displayed for the next few weeks. The finishing touch came with some red stickles for the holly berries. So quick and easy!
How are you coming with your holiday cards?
