Christmas Cards




Since tomorrow is the first day of October it’s time for me to start thinking about Christmas cards. These are the cards we sent out last year. I saw a scrapbook page that was laid out with cut strips and loved the idea so much I borrowed it for our cards. For the base of my cards I bought plain white cards, of course you can use any color you like.
1. Cut a piece of cardstock 4x6
2. I used five pictures but you can use as many as you like. Cut them in strips for the so that the part you like is in the strip.
3. Using a dry adhesive place your pictures onto your 4x6 cardstock. Cut off any of the picture that hang over the cardstock. Then make as many copies as you need, just like a regular 4x6 picture.
4. I then matted my picture on a piece of cardstock and adhered the picture to the card.
5. I stamped above and below the picture and on the envelope with Stupendous
“ Retro Gift Border”
6. I embellished the card with Stupendous “Class A’Peel” stickers. I used Ranger
“Stickles” in Star Dust on the envelope.
These were so much fun to make and I had more complements on these cards that any I’ve ever sent out. I hope you take this idea and make it your own, let me know how it goes.
