Welcome to our first ever CardMaker Blog Hop!!!! It’s nine days before Christmas … have you finished your Christmas cards yet? If not, don’t worry. We’ve got you covered. Our Blog Team has created quick and easy last-minute Christmas cards you can make today and still have time to deliver them.
I decided to join in on the fun and chose to create a very simple card that was inspired by all of the cool projects I’ve seen lately using baker’s twine including Carolyn King’s beautiful card she shared last week. This card is so easy!
First, cut a ring from heavyweight cardstock. My ring measures approximately 2 1/4 inches in diameter, but you can make yours larger or smaller. Tape ends of baker’s twine on back of ring and wrap twine around ring until it is covered. Trim end of twine and secure to backside with tape. I mixed two different colors of green twine together to create a more dimensional look.
Attach gems to wreath. I love sparkle, so I added lots.
Create a card of desired size from bright green cardstock. Cut a piece of white cardstock approximately 1/4 inch smaller than card front. Adhere to hot pink cardstock; trim a small border.
Hand-letter “Joy to the World” at bottom of layered panel. To be safe, use a pencil first and then trace over the letters with a black fine-tip pen. Adhere layered panel to card front. Adhere wreath to card and you’re done!
