Christmas Cards for the Boys

December 14, 2011

Here are the cards I made for my grandsons. There are many variations on this style of card out there in blog land, so thanks to everyone for the inspiration.

I started with a base care of Whisper White and added a layer of Real Red.  (Look no embossing).  I punched the long edges of a piece of Whisper White card using the Scallop Trim Border punch and then embossed the centre panel using the Perfect Polka Dots Embossing folder.  I added a strip of Basic Black card and then using a piece of Silver Glimmer paper punched a 1″ square I used the 1 1/4″ square and punched around the 1″ square making sure to centre it.  I added this piece to the Basic Black strip to make the “buckle”.  I kept the inside of this card plain as well but did add “Ho Ho Ho” to the inside.  I cut the letters from Real Red cardstock using the Timeless Type Junior Alphabet.

These are simple cards but I think my grandsons will love them.

Bye for now, Kris.
