Seeing Red & Green

Hope I am not boring anyone with all my Christmas cards. I have really enjoyed creating and making these Christmas Cards. It is like a miniature canvas that you decorate, and then you can share with family and friends.

Poinsettia Card - use 2 different green pattern papers, 1 red with stripe pattern paper, the poinsettia flowers are stickers from Michael’s dollar bin, and was a gift to me from my sister, Lizzy. The smaller green pattern paper just free hand a wavey border and cut it out. Also you will need to smaller pieces of solid green to stamp the wording on. All the layers of paper will need the edges inked in the appropriate colors.

Tis the Season Card mint green solid card stock, a mistletoe pattern paper, a small strip of a green pattern paper, punch out a yellow star, and cut out a circle. I used a template, but I am sure you could use the cricut cutter. Two small piece of ribbon, and two brads, a small piece of the mint card stock to stamp the wording.

Hope-Peace-Love Card- 2 pieces of pattern paper (1 green & 1 red), two small pieces of cream cardstock, one to adhere the sticker (peace-hope-love-Miss Elizabeth sticker), and the other to stamp the wording. On both of the creams pieces you want to round off only two corners each (see picture). Then ink the edges of both pieces. The cream piece with the sticker you will want to matt it in red and then round only two of the corners. You will also need to ink the edges of the red & green pattern paper.
