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.
This week my friend Kathie was out of town, so there was no crafty play date… but I still wanted to keep on track for my weekly goal of making at least one holiday card. This week’s card features the adorable Merry Days collection by Crate Paper, which I’ve had in my stash for over a year and never used. And this was a fun challenge for me because it doesn’t use the typical card making supplies, but rather, gift wrap supplies.
I do love wrapping pretty packages, so when I found the Merry Days Gift Wrap Book and Gift Tags set at Tuesday Morning, I couldn’t resist. Although the printed paper is very thin, like copy paper, it does work for cards, too… so why not get double use when you can? I layered two of the gift wrap prints onto crisp white cardstock and placed a border of matching washi tape across the center. Then simply added a die cut tag and a pair of gift tags embellishments to finish the design.
I love the color palette of this collection! So different from other paper collections that I have, and it’s always fun to try something different every once in awhile.
Thanks so much for stopping by! Wishing you all a wonderful weekend!
