Can you believe that Christmas is less than two weeks away?! I mean, where has December gone? That’s my excuse for not getting a card up last week. This month is just flying by and there’s so much to do! So, to make up for not getting a card made for you guys last week, I made three for this week! They are all pretty simple designs that can be quickly thrown together if you need a last-minute card.
So, in order of how I made them:
I had actually planned out a whole cool scene card with a window and a fireplace, making like a cozy house with a tree and presents, but for some reason I couldn’t get Cricut Access to work when I was making the card. The day before, while I was trying to make some treats for a Christmas party, I got logged on and had to update the app. But I didn’t have time to actually cut anything out. And the next day when I actually had time to sit down and work on cards, I couldn’t get the plug-in to load. After several attempts, I gave up and made this instead. I’m still hoping to try something like I had originally planned eventually, but for now this works.
I’ve had this cookie paper for a while and when I was digging through my Christmas stickers, I found this cute sheet of all different kinds of Christmas cookies and I thought they would be cute together. I like how the cookies frame the red which in turn frames the cream. And what’s more fun than Christmas cookies? 🙂 My mom and I had our annual Christmas baking day today, and it definitely was fun!
I’ve seen cards on Pinterest with button ornaments or button holly, so I decided to combine the two. This is really the simplest card possible, but it’s still so cute! I just used a green marker to draw on the holly leaves and a silver one for the strings and ornament tops. The buttons are held on with glue dots. Add a simple sentiment at the bottom, and you’re set!
So there you go! I hope that makes up for me missing last week. I really should check my list and see if I have enough Christmas cards made now for the few people that I send them to.
Have a great week!
