Day 1 - Home-made Holiday Cards

Our first project comes from Design Team member Julie Boeck. A card is the easiest way to send your Holiday Cheer through the mail and nothing says you care like spending the time to personalize it for a friend, family member or special someone. There are endless patterns and possibilities, so grab some simple supplies and get started!

Here are a few of Julie's ideas to get you inspired!


"A Wish..." card:
Fancy Pants Christmas Magic papers, Maya Road Tree, chalk ink (for tree trunk), Making Memories label, Stamp from Hero Arts, Making Memories alpha stickers, Gold metallic dot from Hero Arts.


























"Holiday Wishes" card:

Hero Arts stamp, Hero Arts gemstones, Martha Stewart border punch, Fancy Pants Christmas Magic papers, Bazzill Kraft cardstock.




"Honor Christmas" card:
Fancy Pants Christmas Magic paper and transparency, Vintage McCall's pattern children, Gary M. Burlin and Co. star brads, chalk ink for edges.

Hello,
When I design custom invitations, I offer to design custom postage for my clients to complete the look of their invitation package. The party starts when the guests open their invitations, so setting the tone of the party with the invitation is important. But even before the envelope is opened, the first impression the guest has of the invitation is what’s on the outside.
