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 here with you.
Last month I got the chance to visit with Kathie, and we were able to craft together in person, for a change. I brought along my favorite holiday collection of the year, Simple Stories’ Simple Vintage North Pole, and managed to make a handful of cards. I have shared most of the cards already over the previous weeks, and today I’m back with the last of them.
This card features one of the few remaining 3×4 journaling cards I had left in the 6×8 paper pad. It didn’t quite fit in the die cut rectangular frame I wanted to use, so I added a strip of patterned paper to fill the space at bottom and top, and embellished the frame with paper photo corners, die cut ephemera bits, and twine.
I have very little of this paper left, which makes me both sad and happy. Sad because I hate to see it go, but happy that every scrap is getting put to use. I may manage to eek out one or two more cards with the supplies I have left, and then maybe move onto tags. Stay tuned! And thanks so much for stopping by!
