Card Making Monday: Divine Swirls Christmas Card {in red}



I sat down to do some Christmas crafting today only to realise that it was one of those terrible Fibro/CFS brain fog days thanks to good ole fatigue. So frustrating! I've been having so many of these days lately. Blah. Anywhoo, this was the best I could come up with:


I'm sorry if you were expecting something amazing, but I just haven't been feeling like myself lately, so my craft is suffering a little BUT I promise to bring the goods on the next edition of Crafty Fridays- I'm putting the final touches on my Christmas advent calender!


This card was extremely simple to make (perfect for those brain fog days!). I used white pre-cut card stock and rolled it through my cuttlebug machine using my Divine Swirls embossing folder. I've gotta say, I just love this embossing folder for creating Christmas cards, it's so pretty!


I then wrapped some red ribbon around it and tied a bow off to the left side.


Finally, I decorated my embossed swirls with red rhinestones. And there you go, a Christmas card in five minutes! Simple dimple!

Thank you both for your sweet comments. I don't think I'm really happy with anything on my worst days so the positive feedback is really appreciated x

I love this, it's elegantly simple. I have the same embossing folder and have never thought to do this.
