I decided to make my own Christmas cards this year…
I used pages from an old tattered hymnal
I taped the hymnal pages onto regular printer paper (Washi tape worked perfectly for that) and printed the pine cone/branch printables I found on a blog this week (for the life of me I can’t figure out where I found them) (I have looked and looked) (It’s driving me crazy if anyone knows which blog had these posted this week, PLEASE let me know. I think I need to ask the Wizard of Oz for a memory!). UPDATE:: Angie from Knick of Time was nice enough to let me know that it was from her blog just last week that I found these graphics! How embarrassing, but thanks Angie! (I swear I looked there!) Where can I find that Wizard?
After trimming the printed pages to fit my cards and I used a glue stick to attach them to the card.
I touched a bit of glitter here and a bit of glitter there on the print…
just enough to highlight the design.
Martha Stewart adhesives are the best, I used a glue stick to attach the music to the card and the gel adhesive to apply the glitter.
My coffee table may never be the same!
But I do love the cards! Each one is a bit different…
On the inside of the card I glued a piece of music with Merry Christmas printed on it.
in keeping with the music theme.
I also made some Shutterfly collage Christmas cards to put inside these. I only paid $6.73 for 25 cards and can’t wait to get them.
Aren’t they cool? I can’t wait to send them out!
I made these stickers with my Xyron to put on the outside of the envelopes.
I am linking to these great parties!
