Oh my gosh, has it been over a month since I last blogged? Time seems to speed by during the holidays. I hope you all had a great holiday! I know I did. I'm one of those crazy woman who likes to make my own handmade Christmas cards. I made a total of 40 cards, and it took me a solid week to complete them all. I thought I'd share a card I did last year, that although it looks simple, there was a lot of work involved, along with a lot of hair pulling!
This snow globe has a back piece covering the front part of the card that prevents you from seeing through to the inside of the card. I hand punched a lot of the pieces, and the snowman was hand cut out of thick glitter paper. As I said, looks simple, but really was a lot of hard work. I love the embossing of the snow and the base of the globe. If you all decide to try and reproduce a card like this, then hopefully you won't struggle as much as I did. Although one card is a lot easier than 40!
Next I'd like to share a card that I made for my Grandson. He's a huge Spiderman fan and I decided to try my hand at a special card for him. I cut the web out of my Cricut, and hand cut the eyes out. The letters are punched out of card stock, using a Martha Stewart punch. This was such a simple card to create, and he just loved it. I hope you all have a fantastic New Year, and I wish you all happiness, love and creativity! Happy crafting!!!!!
