Homemade Greeting Card: Pink and Blue Merry Christmas Card

Hello everyone!

I am so excited about the card I have to show y’all (yes that’s how we say it here in the south).

This card turned out even more beautiful than I could have imagined. When I was pulling out scrapbook paper for the color scheme I wanted to use for my homemade Christmas greeting card, Mom was a little nervous, but after it was finished she changed her tune and was so jealous! LOL (Mom I know you’re reading this I had to tell the truth). Now for the moment you all are waiting for, here is a picture of the beautiful handmade christmas card I made.


I am so in LOVE with this little card. The more I play the better I seem to get; especially when I don’t have other things going on for the day and I can just focus on my scrapbook pages or cards. This card layout is a sketch I got from the Clean and Simple Stamping Blog this week and I tweaked it a little to add ornaments instead of stars. There are so many different things you can do with this layout. I’m actually working on two more card that look like this, but in stead of ornaments I’m doing candy and gingerbread men and the other is going to have presents strung across it. This layout is so simple you can make it work for anytime of year.

The scrapbook pages used for this project are just stock pages from Michael’s craft store.I used the cricut cutter to make my ornaments with the Joys of the Season cartridge. If you enjoy making holiday greeting cards, scrapbook pages or any other crafts and don’t have this cartridge for your cricut, get it! There are so many cool little cut outs and they have a whole section dedicated to the 12 Days of Christmas. I embossed the top of the ornaments with silver embossing powder, as well as the Merry Christmas sentiment. The silver behind the ornaments and bordering the sentiment is a mirrored, silver cardstock. To decorate the ornaments with a little bling I used rhinestones and OH MY, they look so elegant and pretty.

I have decided to enter this little card into several challenges this week which include:

Cute Cards Thursday – Anything Goes
