10 projects for Christmas: merry card


I’ll be sharing 10 projects that I’m gifting this Christmas… from home decor to creative wrapping and everything in between… I hope you enjoy.  Here’s the first one.


idea: Friend I think could use a “pick me up”… want to give little Starbucks gift card to.

So I made a card (6″ x 5″ when folded) with kraft cardstock, used this felt Dear Lizzy (American Crafts) embellishment, and was on my way.

A bit of stitching, some random letters, some glimmer glam painted on… oh and who doesn’t love to have some sequin goodies.

What I love about this time of year is that it does not all have to be on one day. You can spread it out. Share the happy. Make merry. Cheer someone right up. Why not?

A quick card, a fun way to add homemade to a gift card, and hopefully a welcome gift to the person I’ve sent it off to…
