Happy World Card Making Day! Did you know today officially kicks off the holiday card making season? It may seem a little early to be listening to Christmas carols and sipping hot cocoa, but it’s never too early to get started on those holiday cards, especially if you have a long list of family and friends!
For those of you that love to mass-produce your Christmas cards, I’m here with a little inspiration right from the pages of our November/December 2012 issue! Officially on sale next Tuesday, it has over 160 festive projects to make your holidays a little bit merrier and a whole lot brighter.
Take our Simple Sentiments on p. 87. I used the mistletoe sentiment to create this Merry Kissmas Card. I think red, green, and kraft is my new favorite color combination. (Of course, I say that about A LOT of kraft combinations!)
All I did was trim the mason jar from patterned paper (there are actually 12 whole jars on this single piece of paper, so it’s perfect for mass-producing!), trim the sentiment to match the shape of the jar, and adhere. Add a bright red bow and some pearls to accent the berries and you’re done! For complete supplies and instructions, click here.
Leave a comment telling me how you plan to spend this crafty day and I’ll pick one winner to take home goodies from the Dear Lizzy Neapolitan collection and a copy of our new November/December issue! All comments must be received by Monday, October 8th at 5 pm MDT.
Whether you end up shopping for new supplies, organizing your creative space, hanging out online, or actually making a card (or 20!), make this day all about you!
