Hello! I have my August Christmas Cards to share with you today. As most of you already know I play the Christmas Card Challenge on Splitcoaststampers where we make Christmas Cards all year long so that were not stressed out during the busy holiday season. I make five cards a month so that I'll have about sixty cards at the end of the year. I make a long card, about 4 x 8 so that I can fit a Christmas letter and photo card inside. I also try to keep layers to a minimum so that most of the cards are mailable. However, this month I broke my rule because I wanted to use these cute little felt critters. I will probably hand deliver these cards to my church family who have small children.
I purchased these pre- made felt designs from a local fabric and crafts store last year. I get a lot of questions every time I use pre- made felt creations. You can find them in the seasonal craft section of any major craft store, or in the dollar bins. I even found some in the kid's crafts sections of the stores. They make the cutest and easiest cards without all the work.
I used an old DCWV Holiday designer paper for my background. It is very glittery and has some texture to it in real life. I then tied a Christmas ribbon around the card base and added another small circle of designer paper and a sentiment. A simple hemp bow and some adhesive crystals finished the card.
Have a great day! Amy
