This holiday season, I have been making "simpler" cards for the holidays at my classes and events. We just don't seem to have enough time during the holidays to create the kinds of elaborate cards we would like to send to people. Others have so many people on their Christmas card list that making so many of them can be a time consuming process.
Today I have a "quick card" for you that can be done in a couple of different versions. They are super easy and very quick to make and put together. You can cut your cardstock bases ahead of time and then punch out snowflakes whenever you have a free minute. I keep mine in a baggie and carry them with me everywhere I go. Whenever I wait in the bank drive through line, wait for my hairdresser or at a doctor's appointment, I pull out my scrap cardstock and my punch and I punch away. You would be amazed at how quickly you can accumulate enough snowflakes to make TONS of cards by doing this!
Here is the first version of the card. Both cards are made using Stampin' Up! supplies - Bashful Blue Cardstock, Whisper White Cardstock, Whisper White Craft Ink and White Embossing Powder. This version uses dollops of Crystal Effects in the center of the snowflakes plus some white gel pen for the faux stitching around the outside edges of the card.
This second version was made by my niece during out girls' weekend using the oh so popular - GLITTER!
I hope today's post inspires you to make some "quick cards" of your own for the holidays. Handmade cards are made from the heart and so special to give to your friends and family!
Thanks for stopping by today. Stay tuned for more tomorrow.
