Here we are again for another Festive Friday! Festive Fridays is a bimonthly blog hop hosted by Terri Sproul. It gives us the opportunity to create Christmas cards all year long so that we have a batch of them ready to send out at the holidays. You should have arrived here from: Brenda’s blog If you’d like to start the hop from the beginning, head on over to: Terri’s blog.
This week I have two cards to show you. One is a general holiday card themed Winter Wonderland. I like to have a few seasonal cards on hand that certainly can be used as Christmas cards but aren’t necessarily strictly themed that way. These are helpful for sending out to those I know who don’t celebrate Christmas and/or are of a different faith. For this card, I used a piece of blue cardstock as the background. I had found some adhesive backed flocked lettering ribbon some time ago and had been wanting to use it, so it formed the theme and sentiment on the card. I then added to the theme, creating a mini snow storm out of a cardboard snowflake I received in a scrapbooking kit, some silver (both glittery and not) snowflakes that came from an embellishment kit I purchased at Dollarama (a Canadian dollar store chain), and some blue and white snowflake brads.
My second card is a Hanukkah card I made for a dear friend of mine. I started with the same blue cardstock base and then tore strips of a scrapbooking paper and applied those as “stripes”. I embellished it with some stars of David that I cute from silver pieces received in that Dollarama kit, icy blue and silver bugle beads, and iridescent sequins. I added the sentiment to the inside.
Thanks for stopping by and having a look at my cards. I’m really pleased with how they turned out and the simplicity of them. Your next stop is: Robin’s Nest
