Today I am sharing a couple of Christmas cards I have made. I love to make my own Christmas cards each year for special family and friends.
I love adding a little “flair” to my cards with some fun buttons from TheCraftyPickle Etsy shop
|Rudolf’s nose shines bright with this red bokeh flair.
I really like the layers on this card. The fun Merry & Bright is just the right touch to embellish this card.
How cute is this December set?
There are a ton of New products now available in the shop. Just in time for all your Christmas crafting projects.
This is my favorite from the new release.
Thanks for stopping by today
Hi Crafty Friends! It’s Lisa here today from Happy Paper & Ink to share a new Project Life card that I created. I am doing some preparation for my December Daily album, so that is what inspired me to create this card.
For this card, I started with Pink Paislee Merry & Bright 6×6 paper pad. I cut a tag and a 4×6 project life card from the paper pad. I then cut strips of paper for the side border to add some interest. I cut a snowflake tag on white and red paper using my Silhouette Cameo. I also cut the title using gold glitter vinyl and my Silhouette Cameo for the title “Hello Santa”. I doodled around all the edges with a black 0.8 American Crafts Black Pen and inked with black Memento Ink.
To finish off the card, I used The Crafty Pickle’s Black & White Color Pop Flair and applied it to the top of the snowflake tag. I added some sequins to the corner of the card from The Crafty Pickle. Adding any of the Relish Mixes to your layout or cards gives a fun, sparkly and thin embellishment. These come in all colors, I used the Magical Mouse mix for this card. I layered the sequins and put red glitter stickle dots on top of some of the sequins to change the look a little. And finally, I tied a bow at the top of the snowflake tag to tie it all together!
I hope you enjoyed my Project Life card & are inspired. Look for some more blog posts showing my December Daily in the future!
Thanks for looking & Happy Crafting!
Hi Crafty Friends! It’s Lisa here today from Happy Paper & Ink to share a new Project Life card that I created. I am in the beginning stages of working on my December Daily album, so that is what inspired me to create this card.
For those of you not familiar with December Daily, Ali Edwards created it to document the days of your December. Basically, you do a page for each day spotlighting the activities of the day to include your family traditions, etc. This will be my first year to do this, and I am super excited!
For this card, I started with Pink Paislee Merry & Bright 6×6 paper pad. I cut a tag and a 3×4 project life card from the paper pad. I then used The Crafter’s Workshop Positive Stencil and texture paste to create the black cross or plus signs on the paper to add some dimension and interest in the corners. I doodled around all the edges with a black 0.8 American Crafts Black Pen and inked with black Memento Ink.
To finish off the top of the card, I used The Crafty Pickle’s Black & White Color Pop Flair and wrapped a ribbon around it. I added some sequins from The Crafty Pickle. Adding any of the Relish Mixes to your layout or cards gives a fun, sparkly and thin embellishment. These come in all colors, I used the Magical Mouse mix for this card.
The title on the card is made by using American Crafts cardstock stickers and American Crafts Be Merry Red Thickers Alphabet.
I hope you enjoyed my Project Life card & are inspired to start a December Daily! Look for some more blog posts showing my December Daily in the future!
Thanks for looking & Happy Crafting!

Here is Joann’s super fun FlarTastic Greeting Card I love how she used the vellum as an overlay to soften the background paper …so great!!! And how she used the Something Shiny Slightly Cupped Sequin to follow your eye down the card for interest!!! And bunching the twine behind the Orange Pop of Flair …i am so going to steal that idea!!!
And next we have Carrie
