Getting Ready for Christmas

Getting Ready for Christmas

Hi Friends! Andrea with you today sharing my first Christmas project of the season using the new Simple Vintage Christmas Lodge Collection by Simple Stories.

I used my most favorite products to make a set of Christmas cards and envelopes to send to friends and family members during the Holiday season. 

Every time I receive a new collection, there are certain products I love to check out first: the foam stickers are my number one embellishment and I am not sure that will ever change.

After that, I spend some time looking at the patterned papers, the chipboard Frames and Clusters, and it makes me happy when a collection comes with a card set.

Yes, I normally make all the cards I get in the card kits and have them ready to share with the people I love.  It's always great to get a head start becasue the holidays come up quick!

The first step of this project was to make the cards. I love adding dimension and texture and I get that by adding machine stitching details and using foam adhesive on all of my cards.

The cards kit comes with pre-punched embellishments and printed color instructions that make the process of putting together the cards a super fun one--and anyone can do it. 

I then custom created the envelopes using some of the 12x12 patterned papers. I added machine stitching details around the edges of each one of the envelopes and decorated them using the chipboard clusters, chipboard frames, foam and chipboard stickers. I also included a few bits and pieces and some enamel dots to finish decorating each card/envelope. 

I hope this post inspires you to create fun cards and spread the Christmas spirit with your loved ones. I would love to know if you make and share cards with your friends and family and what are your favorite products to use or techniques to apply when making them :)!
