I wanted to share my holiday cards with you that I made for my family and family friends......I spent probably 12 hours working on these yesterday, I did nothing but stamp and prep these all day...I still have the sentiment to stamp on the inside and then they will be ready to mail. Hope you Enjoy!!!
I think I am a little crazy, LOL I made a total of 50 cards, I really hope this is enough, I have extra pictures if necessary :)
I wanted to make something easy and cheaper to mail since I will be mailing so much for the holidays. I want to share directions for you in case you would like to make something similar with a photo of your kids in the center.
This card is your standard A2 size, I cuttle bugged the second layer with this darling Basic Grey Sizzix folder. My next step was to add a 1 1/2 inch layer of green and tore it for added texture. I sent my picture off to Walmart, I had the kids sit really close together in front of the fire place so I could get it so I could punch the pictures out. When I ordered my photos I ordered the wallet size. Next I used my large scallop circle punch (by Marvy) and punched the red circle, I then used the next one down (the pink one by Marvy) to punch all of the pictures. I then used my nestie to do the white circle behind the picture. This is the one in the small circles nestie pack. I then punched a 1 1/4 circle to attach on the back on the scallop red circle, then punched a hole so it would look like an ornament. Finally, I tied a ribbon and hot glued it. I thought it needed a little something extra so I added some bling to the corner :)
Hope you enjoyed my creation today, thanks so much for stopping by!! Have a GREAT Monday Everyone!!!
