Easy Christmas Cards - using your stash!

Well, I've been unbelievably absent from posting! It's been a crazy fall with work and I've mostly been heads down trying to get some things done for holiday markets. Unfortunately, the first 2 that I planned to participate in didn't happen for one reason or another. The first turned out to be a rainy, windy, freezing day and it was cancelled. The second... well... I got COVID :-( I'm thankful to be on the mend now and looking forward to Blanco Market Days on Dec. 17!!

In the meantime, I was recently inspired by a lovely, clean Christmas Card created by Erin Bishop @eb_mixedmedia. I loved the way I could use up some of the myriad papers I have to create something so lovely. I had so much fun with it that I decided to not stop with trees but move on to ornaments as well. It's amazing how gluing down some strips of paper can result in the focal point for a ton of cards really quickly.

I hope you enjoy it and and are inspired to create your own!! I'd love to see your results. To make, cut random width strips of paper and glue them on a piece of blank printer paper. Cut out the shapes you want and add them to the front of your card. Embellish as you wish. I used gold paint pens and splattered with some watered down metallic gold acrylic paint.
