I would like to say that I have been inspired by the snow of recent days for these cards but I created the background paper and picked out the ornament punchies over a week ago!! I created the background paper by rubbing dimensional snow paint from a jar onto white cardstock with my finger until it was completely coated and left it to dry. The ornament punchies (SU) are some that I received in a prize from one of my groups. I loved the red colour with the little bit of glitter they had so I thought they would look great on my glittery snow backgrounds. I trimmed my backgrounds to 4" x 5.25" and embossed them with Christmas embossing folders (SX CB). I punched several leaf branch punchies (MS) from green cardstock and added silver cord hangers to my ornaments. I positioned the ornaments on my background first and adhered them with a little strip of 3D foam tape and then positioned the branch punchies so that they could be made to look like they were hanging from them by drawing a black line (Sharpie) between the two. I glued the branches on with white glue using a fine tip applicator and added a stitch using green thread to ensure that they would not fall off as the card was handled. I then glued this layer to a white card front!! Pretty happy with how these worked out!! I made two of each which adds four to my Christmas card stash for this holiday season!! That brings my total to 82 from the 78 I had after I made these elf shoe ones. I have one more sheet of snowy glitter paper so I will have to come up with a design for four more!!
Have you started your Christmas cards?? I have been making a few every month so that they will be ready by the time I need them. It is not too late!! You can start today and have fun making them over the next couple of months!!
