Seasonal Sampler Day #6: Holiday Cards + VIDEO


Welcome to Day #6 of the "Seasonal Sampler" FREE Blog event. Let's talk holiday cards. It's highly likely no matter how much of a crafter you claim to be that you're going to be making holiday cards this year. Making handmade cards is a special way to say you care. I've created several cards, and I've even shared a few already here on my blog. If you missed my "Christmas Card" 10 day video event, be sure to catch all 10 cards and VIDEOS here! (Here's a peek at one in case you missed it the first time!)



I thought I'd share a few more ideas on creating holiday cards today.

I saved one card from my "Christmas Card" session for today's blog post. In this video, I'm using the Bo Bunny "Mistletoe" Christmas line, which is full of traditional reds and greens but also a touch of cool blue. It's a fun collection, and I wanted to share this additional Christmas Card idea with you. Here's the card I created in this video:


And here is the helpful start-to-finish video featuring this card:
