Welcome to Christmas at Chronically Creative 2011! Are you excited? You should be. I'm excited, just in case you couldn't tell. Eeeeeeeeee! Throughout December I'll be posting lots of creative Christmas craft projects but for today I have a cute Christmas card to show you!
I used pre-cut red card stock for this card and stuck down some striped paper as my background. I wish I could tell you what it's called but I did a huge paper haul and lost track, but any scrapbooking store will be sure to have something similar.
To create the snowflake background, I rolled some white card stock through my cuttlebug machine using the snowflake embossing folder. To get the green effect I dabbed one side of the embossing folder with a green ink pad before embossing.
I then stuck down a strip of green card stock and trimmed the left edge with decorative scissors. I then used a paper pricker to create the pretty holes and stamped a christmas sentiment using my clear stamp set and Memento ink in Tuxedo Black.
Lastly, I cut out a christmas tree from the Kaisercraft Carnival Collection, tied a green bow around the top and stuck it down. So there you have it, a really simple but fun and cheerful Christmas card.
I also embossed an envelope to match. Adorable, no?
I'm linkin' up with these blogs.
