Merry Christmas

Even though the holidays are over, I thought it would be fun to put up some of the Christmas cards that we made this season. Over the summer, we purchased a Die Cuts with a View Ultimate Scrapbook Kit for Christmas. It came with wonderful holiday papers, stickers, chipboard, ribbon, quotes and tons of embellishments. We used this kit to make the majority of our holiday cards, although we often supplemented it with stickers and embellishments from a local craft store. 

This card was made using the white and red stripe paper from the DCWV kit. A strip of dark green Bazzil Paper was added and embellished with two santa hat 3D stickers. These stickers were one of my favorite embellishments this past holiday season. They were very soft and had the perfect fluffy white trim and pom pom. The gold corners and strip on the bottom are from a metallic sticker set found in many kits from Ecstasy Crafts. In the years past, Robin and I did not make that many Christmas cards. Yet, this past season we made a couple hundred holiday cards, all of which were mailed to the soldiers over seas. It was a lot of fun!
