Punches are fantastic for making quick, cute Christmas cards, especially when you have a number to make!
Today’s share is both a project inspired by a sample in the Holiday Catalogue and one of the cute projects we did at my recent Stamp-A-Stack:
The background is fun and unique! I had quite a few of this particular print of paper left over from the Come Sail Away Designer Series Paper after doing card classes and a scrapbook layout with them. So. . .what to do?
I’ve cut the paper into four strips, inked the edges, and wrinkled them up in my hand. I somewhat flattened them back out and adhered them to a Very Vanilla base with Tombow glue. It always tickles me when someone looks shocked when I suggest they crinkle up their “perfectly good” paper; it’s always good to push our comfort zone a little, but also I totally respect if someone just prefers a more clean look. Of course one can just put the strips down without inking or crinkling, too!
Two other things I love about this project: I love the contrast of the bright colours with the vintage style papers. And I also love the unexpectedness of pairing sailing themed papers with Christmas ornaments. It’s so fun to do something out of the norm and have it look great!
I do have a few kits of this one left, in slightly different colours, but of course you can change the colours to suit you anyway with just some small scraps to cut out the ornaments. I only have a few, so I won’t create a Paypal button, but please just email me instead if you’d like up to ten of these kits.
** Also, I just updated my Class Calendar page last night for 2020! Check it out! I also have a couple of other classes that may be added; please contact me if you’d like to host a class in your area, either a one-off or a regular one.
Thanks for stopping by!
