Holiday Greetings

I love to hand make holiday cards for my friends and family using my leftover paper from my layouts and scrapbook pages.  This year I started early and made a few cards with last years Echo Park Christmas Collections.

This first card is my favorite!  I die cut the mug with my Slice and covered it with Glossy Accents then sprinkled in a little glitter to give it some shimmer.  To finish it off I added a paper straw, some felt marshmallows and some bakers twine, so cute!

The second card is a rolled paper Christmas Tree which is super easy to do just roll the patterned paper and adhere the rolls to a triangular piece of cardstock.  To complete my tree I wrapped twine around it and added a snowflake star.  I stamped a Hero Arts bird carrying an ornament to the tree then to finish it off I added some glitter snow and glittered and flocked snowflakes.

For the last card I wanted to make a card that was fast and easy so I covered a chipboard snowflake with silver paint then while it was still wet I added some glitter to make it shimmer.  To finish off the card I added a sentiment from the Echo Park Journaling sheet and a button.  Super fast and easy.

I had so much fun making these cards and can't wait to use the new Echo Park Christmas Collections to make even more holiday cards and projects.

Thanks for stopping by!
