Not Your Traditional Christmas Card

By | December 9, 2015

This card is super trendy and not your traditional Christmas

As you may have guessed by now, I don’t make very “traditional” cards.  My cards are more modern, more funky and usually without any flowers.  I like cards that are a bit edgy and cute looking.  I also don’t use a lot of “stuff” on my cards.  I like as little clutter as possible so that the recipient isn’t overwhelmed.    Plus, I’m a Mom of only boys.  I’ve got a house filled with them.  My husband, kids, dogs, frog.. ya you name it.  Not a whole lot of pink going on here and so I’m always looking for alternative cards.  In fact, I think I’ve only made 2 or 3 purple cards in the 10 years I’ve been doing this.  Are you baffled?  ha ha… blue also happens to be my favorite color, so you tend to see a lot of blue cards too.

Now, you may be wondering where I got the circle from in the center of this card, with the stitching on it.  I’m sad to say that it is not a Stampin’ Up! product, however you could make one similar.  The framelit came from Lawn Fawn.  If you have Stampin’ Up! framelits or punches, you could create a circle and either draw the stitching on it, or punch out the paper using a paper piercing tool to create the same effect.  I’m not ashamed to say that I was just pure lazy when I made this and took the easy way out, ha ha ha.  Hey- it happens, am I right?

Thanks for tuning in today!  Happy Hump Day.
