Happy Holidays Cards

I hate to say it but Christmas is literally right around the corner! I am almost done my Christmas shopping and everything that I've bought so far is wrapped! Go me! So I'm waiting on the last few gifts to arrive by mail... Oh did you think I went out on black Friday to do my shopping? Heck no... not me. Anyways, here's a little project to help you get your cards completed! Forget about spending $1 per card and make your own!

Here's what I used:
Plain White Envelopes by Staples
Photo paper by Staples
Papers and embellishments by Creative Memories (Love this new holiday paper!!)

Using your trimmer, cut a piece of pattern paper to 8-3/4x6-1/2".
Score the pattern paper at 4 1/2".
Attach a 4x6 photo to the front of the card.
Attach the embellishments as shown.



Once you've created the card, scan the card, crop out the background. Print the cards on photo paper and mail them out! This is a quick and easy solution for your Christmas cards and will only cost you about 10 cents per card after you buy your supplies, rather then spending a great deal of money on boring cards.

I love how my card turned out and I hope I inspired you in some way with this class!
