Hello friend, today I am sharing a few cards, to help inspire and motivate you to finish up those last minute holiday cards. I love to make cards, and I love opening the mailbox and seeing a card sent to me. Its an inexpensive way to tell someone you are thinking of them.
With just a few diecuts, pattern paper and ribbon, you have a beautiful card on your hands. The 6×6 Holiday Hustle and die cut ephemera pack, are the perfect combo, to create multiple cards!
I am about to tell you all a secret. When you use foam adhesive, it creates depth, and gives the illusion of a professional card. It really is the secret behind the cards I make.
Adding the little strip of pattern paper to the bottom of the card, helps to visually balance the bottom of the card.
For this next card, I wanted to create a scene using diecuts and pattern paper. First I diecut a scalloped rectangle using paper from the Holiday Hustle 6×6 pad, then adhered it using foam adhesive. Using a few tree die cuts fro the Ephemera kit, adhered them to the pattern paper using foam adhesive. Next the car die cut was added and adhered to the card, along with the sentiment. To embellish a bow was added.
Adding a little bit of black will always make a card “pop”. The “hustle & bustle” sentiment was the perfect choice.
Here are three different ways to use the Holiday Hustle collection, I hope they inspired you to send cards this holiday season!
