Quick and Easy Christmas Cards

Hello Everyone!
More Christmas fun today!  I made a few cards with washi tape and a pretty die cut flower from Memory Box.  I used traditional Christmas colors.



Materials:
Stamps: various holiday sentiments
Inks: Real Red and Old Olive- Stampin' Up
CS: Red, green, gold, white
Washi tape
Flower die cut -Memory Box
Red and green gems


Instructions:

  • Make cards from red and green CS
  • Layer with gold CS
  • Die cut the flowers from the gold CS



  •  Add three strips of washi tape to White CS
  • Stamp the sentiment
  • Add to the card base
  • Add the die cut and glue a gem to the center
  • Add three more gems under the sentiment




The cards were pretty quick and easy.  I made four in no time at all.  They have already been sent out in the mail.

Challenges for my Washi tape Christmas Cards:
Inkspirational: anything with gold
Come and Get It: Merry Christmas
Pile IT ON: Christmas/holiday
Chocolate, Coffee, Cards: Christmas
Crafts 4 Eternity: Christmas


See you tomorrow for some glittery Christmas inspiration!!  Hope you are having a great weekend!!  Love ya

  2. They may be as the title suggested 'quick and easy' Karen, but they have a lovely feel of elegance.
