Christmas Card Project

A year of craftiness starts with a Christmas card.

I have been making Christmas cards for our friends and family since 2000.  It was a fluke.  I was laid off from a small computer company (a victim of the 2000 dot com bust).  Luckily, I was only out of work for two weeks.  During that time I watched way too much Home and Garden TV.  On one program they made a beautiful flip card.  It was so cool, and I had time.  Hours and hours later, I had 35 flip cards.  An obsession was born!

This year I found out about quilling; using strips of paper to make various shapes.  I saw some fabulous quilled snowflakes and knew that would make the perfect card for 2014.

Materials:

  • Stardream paper
  • Card Square Stand-ups from Sizzix
  • Three Birds quilling paper
  • Jolly Bingo Bits from Stampin Up! Snowflake
  • Holiday Happiness from Stampin Up! “Happy Holidays”
  • Baker’s twine
