Make your Christmas tree look straight out of a magazine with these decorating tips. See how to perfectly hang lights, what decorations to use, how to choose garland and what other Christmas decor you can pair with your Christmas tree.
Take a simple, ho-hum image, and chop it up into three panels. Add a mat to each and there you go, ho-hum becomes something with interest. You try it. Find a simple image you love, and stamp away. You will need something that can fill a 3" space. In my case I stamped several times, not re-inking the image. I used: Paper: Soft Suede CS #115318, Very Vanilla CS #101650 Stamps: Lovely as a Tree #115026 Ink: Soft Suede #115657 Other: Vanilla Seam Binding Ribbon #120999, Scallop Trim…
These are easy to make. I made these using some books I bought at goodwill. Paperback romance novels seem to work best due to the binding. You can spray paint them or just add ribbon, stickers, or other "bling".
Pink and white grosgrain ribbon is lovely on this handmade Christmas card. Used as a border and as the trees, it makes a great non-traditional card color. I love the use of white embossed dots for the background and the rustic snowflake.
Rustic Christmas...in a basket. Put some birch branches in a large basket along with some lighted pine pieces for a softly glowing Christmas look. Add a "Joy" or other sign to the front of the basket for a prim touch.
The layering up of this card appeals to me for my next Christmas card. The colour match of the stamp and the patterned paper works well, and gives that holiday feeling when matched with the deep red ribbon. I think the use of the three beads is a good idea which can be used on other cards to add special detail. I am not so fond of the bow, though others may be inspired by the 3D element this gives the card.
