Pine Tree Noel Handmade Card

Pine-Tree-Noel-Card

I love pine trees, so I decided to incorporate them into a Christmas card for this year. To make my trees more “Christmas-y”, I used Stampendous Winter Wonderland embossing powder. It’s mostly white with silver flecks in it. Believe it or not, I got the beautiful ribbon at the Dollar Tree! It’s very thin, and almost papery, but it is very beautiful and works very well for cards. You can follow along below with the video for all the details. I have just barely had my voice come back, so sorry in advance for the raspy voice 🙂

P.S.: The tree stamps I used are:

Fast & Easy Handmade Christmas Card

This card is super simple and fast to make! I used a 3″ x 4″ red piece of cardstock, then cut a piece of Christmas patterned paper slightly smaller to mat onto the red. Then used ribbon, a Christmas greeting stamp with red ink and adhesive pearls to finish this card.

Recycle while making cards?

All of us love the idea of recycling, don’t we? It’s just the responsible thing to do. While I was looking through various blogs today, I came across an awesome idea by Ferrellgraph-x blog. She made a fabulous greeting card using a soda can!

She simply washed it, of course lol, then flattened it out and cut what she needed, then ran it through with an embossing folder. The results are breathtaking! You can try it for yourself by clicking here —> Recycled Pop Can Card.

Retro Christmas Tree Card

By this time of December, you need very easy and quick cards for Christmas. This one is not only quick, but will help use up your scraps of paper!

I used 3 different scraps of green paper and one of brown to make this tree. It is easily decorated with buttons, stickles or peel-off stickers. Your kids will even get a kick out of helping you make this easy card!

Christmas Snowflake Card

Wow, it’s already December 9th! Only 16 more days until Christmas! That’s not a lot of time to get cards ready, so here’s another easy one. It’s elegant but simple to make.

You will need a large snowflake die cut (mine is 3″), a white card and a strip of decorative paper, a pearl brad, Christmas greeting sentiment, stickles, and optional are UTEE (Ultra Thick Embossing Enamel and white acrylic paint & brush.

Make a Christmas card with leaves from your yard!

This card was a happy accident 🙂 I saw a gorgeous leaf card on a blog the other day and thought the lady had really used a leaf to make it. The leaf she used was stamped in silver and it looked phenomenal.  Well, I don’t own a big leaf stamp but I figured it was worth giving a real leaf a chance and see what happened!

It was so much fun experimenting! I also found a way online to dry my leaves quickly — in 30 seconds! So hopefully you can grab a cup of coffee and watch my little oak leaf card video below 🙂

You don’t need much to make your card, just a swirly stamp and ink, some gold embossing powder, gold stickles and bling if you want.
