I love making my own cards.
My designs are not usually complex.
I love simple and clean.
I wanted to share two cards that are perfect for this time of year.
Just simple winter greetings.
Start with your card base.
I usually just cut an 8 1/2 x 11 inch piece of card stock in half and fold it.
The bases I used here are prescored and a bit smaller.
I got them around 25 years ago at my favorite surplus store.
Does that make them vintage?
Next cut a piece of patterned paper the same size as the card.
Carefully rip out the bottom left corner.
Take out enough of a piece for your stamped greeting to show in its entirety.
I like my tear to show the white under the design.
Glue the patterned paper to the front using your favorite adhesive.
Stamp your greeting.
I love Stazon inks.
They don't run if the card gets wet.
Punch a couple shapes using a paper punch.
Here I used a snowflake.
Glue on the centers.
I added a clear plastic half round on top.
You could do glitter, buttons, brads or anything else your heart desires.
This basic format can be used for any occasion.
You can make a couple dozen in an evening.
I still prefer a card in the mail to an email...
Thanks for stopping by...
