Christmas Cardmaking Fun

My friends at Faith Community Church in Hopkinton needed Christmas Cards for our Ladies Bible Study. So, I pulled out my Anna Griffin dies / embossers and Creative Memories scrapbook papers and joined in for some cardmaking fun. How blessed to be able to relax and chit chat with the crew while my tactile nature was fed. Here are a few of my favorite cards from our time together.

My 5×7 Christmas Card …

I pulled together some traditional elements in Christmas red and green for a card with components I liked but which lacked a holiday sparkle. In the next few days I’ll add some lightness with different shades of paper stock and add details to the text box. I do like the gold embellishment with the Lace Trim Die, however this is still a work in progress.

Susan’s 6×8 Christmas Card …

My friends created more modern cards with cleaner lines and eye catching embellishments, for example here is a 6×8 Card I love. Susan’s design is elegant and beautiful in it’s simplicity. My small contribution was the Merry Christmas text using the Sentiments Die.

My 5×7 Modern Christmas Card …

Taking inspiration from my friend’s modern layouts, here is an attempt at a playful card using the Lace Trim Embossing folder to add interest. It was a fun first effort.

These cards don’t have to be perfect to wish someone a Merry Christmas or let them know how much you care. So if it looks like fun, make something special yourself and invite a friend to join you!
