Welcome to the 12 Days of Christmas Blog Hop! I am so excited to be a part of this hop and I am so glad that you stopped by for a visit!
Today we wanted to celebrate the release of Holiday Cards & More which is always one of my fav issues! Creating for this call is always so much fun! I just love Christmas and since Paper Crafts works six months in advance... I get a little bit of holiday cheer during the summer! If you want to order your own copy of Holiday Cards & More... click HERE!
The other purpose of this fun hop is to give you even more ideas for quick 'n easy holiday cards!
I am all about quick 'n easy! Most of the cards that I create are made in 5 steps or less. I love that! Not only do I save time by keeping my designs simple... I will also actually use the cards. If I make a card with a lot of layers/dimension... I find it difficult to mail. I don't know about you but I don't find that many opportunities to hand deliver cards. I love cards that are easy to slip in the mail.
If you are interested in how to reproduce the card that I am sharing with you today.... here are the steps:
1. Make card base and round bottom corners
2. Ink edges with distress ink
3. Color wreath and stamp onto base
4. Stamp sentiment
5. Tie ribbon with button and twine and adhere with glue gun
Now... lets talk giveaways!
