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 15, I made a pair of card using an older 6×6 paper pad from Carta Bella called Snow Much Fun.
Although this is truly a winter themed collection, I think it works perfectly for holiday cards, as well. I mixed patterned papers and crisp white cardstock with small 2×3 printed journaling cards that came in the 6×6 paper pad to create my winter scenes. I’ve been obsessed with the border dies by PhotoPlay recently, so both cards got some decorative edging using that set. And I pulled out some older stitched rectangle and oval dies by Tim Holtz to add more detail to the edges, too.
I found a few old stickers in my stash that matched the papers well, so they’ve been added to help build up the scene. And of course there’s a bit of twine to finish the designs. Unfortunately, a lot of these products are no longer available, but I do always hope to use up some of my older supplies and I think that Christmas cards are the perfect opportunity to do so. Because unless your friends and family are card makers, they’ll never know what’s old and what’s new!
Thanks so much for stopping by! Wishing you all a wonderful weekend and a very happy Mother’s Day!
