Quick and Easy Christmas Cards Scrapbook Ideas
One of my favorite post Christmas occupations is to create a Christmas Scrapbook.
Christmas cards is a tradition for many during the month of December. Some people display the cards they received and discard them when the holidays are over. However, incorporating Christmas cards to your scrapbook hobby is one way to recycle them.
Most scrapbookers also make cards. Should you own scrapbook supplies such as paper, adhesive, and a trimmer, you have the supplies you have to make greeting cards. Each of the articles below have ideas to make Christmas Cards with supplies that you have on hand for scrapbooking. Each of these ideas could also be used to embellish your Christmas scrapbook pages.
A card that features joy is a fairly simple project that may be finished in 45 minutes. All you need is red cardstock, glittered dark green Christmas mat stack, a timber brown ink pad, jeweled gold embossing powder, an embossing heat tool, solid shimmery gold ribbon, a maison frames ink-stamp, letter stamps, a large part rounder, a 4-in-1 embossing corner punch, scissors or perhaps a paper trimmer, tape runner and a ruler. Once the cardstock is cut and folded, decorate by applying letters and a maison frames stamp to the card and following up with embossing powder for added shimmer. Give the card a final holiday touch with the addition of ribbon to the center.
