Welcome back to the Heart of Christmas weekly blog.
This week I had such a short window of time to make my cards and luckily Merry Little Christmas Memories & More Card Pack came to the rescue. That’s right, Memories and More Cards are not just for scrapbooking…they also make very quick and easy cards.
I’m almost embarrassed to say how easy it was to make these cards. You see there’s no stamping, colouring, punching or die cutting, which is exactly what I needed when I was so short on time. In fact they were so easy too make I ended up making 4 cards in under 1/2 hour…here they are!
I made card bases using whisper white and then it was simply a case of layering up the Merry Little Christmas Memories & More Cards with ribbons, embelishments and wash tape…super easy!
The joy card is embellished with the gorgeous Cherry Cobbler 1/4″ Double-Stitched Ribbon and a clear facetted gem.
Merry and Bright uses silver foil, Merry Music Specialty DSP, Pick A Pattern Washi Tape, and Basic Black 3/8″ Shimmer Ribbon.
Ho Ho Ho features gold foil, burlap ribbon, and Gold 1/8″ (3.2 Mm) Ribbon and jute twine tied together into a bow.
And Holly Jolly is mounted on some lemon lime twist card stock and decorated with Lemon Lime Twist 1/4″ Ombre Ribbon tied into a little bow, and the matching stickers that come in the Merry Little Christmas Memories & More Card Pack (mounted with a Stampin’ Dimensional!).
The Holiday catalogue really doesn’t do this set justice, you get so many cards in the set! And there are some gorgeous acetate cards with silver that I will use in a later blog to show you just hoe beautiful they are. Of course some of the cards are really only suitable for scrapbooking or bullet journaling, but many of them are also perfect for cards.
I’m going to make a stack more cards with this set because they are so quick and easy to make.
You can go back to Claire’s blog to see what the rest of our team have made this week.
And I’ll be back next week with some more Heart of Christmas inspiration.
