Happy Friday, crafty friends! As I mentioned in a previous post, from now until December I am on a mission to make at least one holiday card a week during a crafty Zoom session with my friend, Kathie. It’s one way to stay connected to friends and family during these quarantine days, and a great way to build up my stash of cards for the year at the same time. I am calling this my 2021 Christmas Card Project, and each week I hope to share my progress with you.
For week 11, I made a pair of cards with Doodlebug Designs’ Night Before Christmas collection.
Both cards utilize just the 6×6 paper pad and the coordinating Odds and Ends die cut cardstock pieces. For the first card, I added a tiny scalloped border in crisp white cardstock between the break in the two background papers, and layered four of the die cuts to build up a little focal scene. A twine tie added to the top of the stack finishes the design.
For the second card, I layered a strip of patterned paper left over from the first card onto a white cardstock base, and dressed it up with some striped paper and more die cut ephemera bits. And as usual, I had to sneak in a bit of twine for that signature bow.
I love that this collection has well over one hundred pieces in their die cut pack…. but there are no words or sentiments at all. Something different than I’m used to, but that’s fun, too. Puts my total up to 22 cards for this upcoming holiday season. still have a long ways to go!
Thanks so much for stopping by, friends! Wishing you all a wonderful weekend ahead.
