Happy World Card Making Day!

With my tea cup in hand, I walked into my craft room today to make a few cards for World Card Making Day. I just received an order from Paper Wishes and decided to take their Vintage Rose Paper Pack and make Christmas Cards.  The papers don't scream Christmas but you know when you see a paper pack and for some reason you know exactly what you're going to do with it? Well, thats what happened with these papers. 



The next picture is the inside of both cards.



I cut black cardstock for both cards to 4.25" x 5.5". All the pattern paper is from HOTP from Paper Wishes called Vintage Roses Paper Pack. I cut the blue herringbone paper to fit on the front of the cards. The snowflakes are Dazzles and I put them on another piece of blue medallion paper and cut them out.  The silver word stickers Joy, Peace and Merry Christmas are all Dazzles, too. These I also bought from Paper Wishes.  The inside of both cards I just tore the medallion paper into strips and had one large snowflake left so I cut it in half and placed within the torn strips. What do you think? They were really simple and fun to do.

That's it for now. I will have more to show you next week. Thanks so much for stopping by!

Go Create and Be Extraordinary!

  1. Very Pretty Cards. I like seeing Christmas cards that are done not using the traditional Red, White and Green.

    Lovely! :D
