If you are like me, then you are not very fond of making cards. In fact, I stink at it. lol I think anyone who has received a handmade card from me should feel very special. Really, they are just not my thing. So needless to say, I take HOURS on cards and they still look like poo. :)
So, one year, I decided I would distract my recipients. lol I made Christmas cards with a Christmas CD. Here is what I did this year:
Christmas pattern paper
red and green shades of cardstock
CD (download 12-14 favorite Christmas songs onto your CD)
pop up dots
sewing machine (red thread)
embossing (heat gun)
embossing powder & stamp
I cut a 5.5 X 11" piece of cardstock. You can use any color to match your pattern paper. I then cut two strips of paper and stitched them together.
I glued them to the front of my cards, glued a ribbon. To add some texture, I stamped 2 holy leaves with embossing ink and used a heat tool. I used a pop up dot for the tag.
On the inside I kept it very simple, I used another scrap of pattern paper and sewed it onto the cardstock to make a pocket. Like so:You can also send your family a DVD of pictures. I thought this would be a great idea for those living away from family.
Here is a glimpse of 2007's card:I decorated my CD with stamps. This year we are getting SUPER fancy and we will be lightscribing a picture onto our CD.
I am in search of new Christmas music. If you have an absolute favorite song...please share!That's my Christmas CD card. Have fun creating your own! :)
