Christmas Wreath Handmade Card


My friend Beci, forever creative :), made a card last year with a cute Christmas wreath made from flowers that she punched from glitter paper. So I did my own take on her project this week. She actually used the Flower Power Punch, which has a bit of a more rounded petal on the flowers, and with the glitter paper she used, it didn’t need any extras to brighten it up.

Since my punchies were made from pearl paper, I added a few extras like Silver Stickles in the centers of my flowers, but it would look neat too with little gemstones like crystals or pearls in the centers. The greeting can of course be stamped and embossed, but if you were making a whole bunch, sometimes it’s easier to use a peel-off sticker greeting to speed up your cardmaking. This card took just a few minutes to make, so it works well if you’re late getting started on cards this year (ahem….like me!!).


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!
