Warm Holiday Wishes!

Happy holidays! If your life is like mine right now, your time is limited! I still have cards to get out and I want a few that I can keep -- just in case. I love the idea of using simples shapes, and this card just works with those!

White circles: 4" (two), 3" (one), 2.25" (one)
a hat ( I used Lettering Delights Christmas Photo Props)
a carrot shape (from Lettering Delights Christmas Photo Props)
7-8" ribbon
6" twine
Permanent black marker
Assorted glues
Scotch Transparent Tape
Distress Ink: Antique Photo
Red and Silver Stickles Glue

  • Cut the circles from white cardstock. Ink three one of each size (3 total) with Antique Photo ink. 

  • Crease the un-inked circle (4") 1/2 from edge:

  • Add glue at the folded line one the smaller section of the circle. Glue to second 4" circle (inked side out). This forms the card base. Open and set aside. 

  • Add 6" of twine to the back of the 3" circle with tape. Add pop dots. 

  • With the card base open and the right side up, add the prepared 3" circle as pictured:

  • Add the carrot shape to the 2. 25" circle as shown:

  • With the black marker, add eyes and "coal" mouth....

  • Fold the ribbon in half. Knot approximately 1" from the folded edge. 
  • Tape to the back of the 2.25" circle with the knot outside of the circle circumference. 

  • Pop dot the smallest circle to the stack:

  • Add the hat shape and embellish!

  • I added a sentiment in a snowflake shape to the inside that says "Warm holiday wishes!" You could use this as a holiday thank you with "Snow many thanks!" 
I hope to see you again soon! The warmest holiday wishes to you and yours!
