There is still plenty of time to create homemade Christmas cards, if you use a few shortcuts.
For this one, I cut paper from Prima’s Sweet Peppermint Collection to fit the front of my card. I added a bit of ink to the edges.
Then, I took another piece of paper and punched each corner with the Kreaxions 4-in-1 Punch #311, using the C insert included in the set.
Then, I stamped the word Merry Christmas (from Elizabeth Craft Designs) in the middle and inked the edges.
Quick and simple, but beautiful, just the same!

My card features papers from Prima’s Sweet Peppermint Collection. I created a card base and then layered cardstock and printed papers as shown. (I added Distress Ink to most of my edges for additional depth.)
Next, I used Kreaxions Punch 902 and the Kreaxions Punch Mate to punch a short border. (If you flip over the punch, you can easily line up the punches.)
Then, I trimmed the paper, so I was left with just this …
I used scissors to cut the paper so I had two borders.
I then inked each border and added them to my card front.
After adding the final piece of paper, it looks like this …
Thank you so much for stopping by!
