CardMaker Blog Team Hop

Welcome to the first CardMaker Blog Team Hop featuring last minute Christmas cards. Also known as quick and easy and I have too much going on cards! :)
Quick Merry Christmas BOTH
Quick and easy cards, at least to me, mean a small number of supplies and a basic design that is effortless to re-create several times over. While thinking about this hop, I went wandering in Michael’s. Already marked down on clearance (which makes this even better!), was a package of decorative tape and a package of dimensional star stickers. Perfectly coordinated for me by Martha Stewart (ha ha), I knew I had found my solution.
My three supplies:
  • Decorative Tape
  • Dimensional Stickers
  • White cardstock
Quick Merry Christmas Star
For this card, I placed two pieces of decorative tape across the center of the card. The tape overlapped the edges and I trimmed away the excess with a pair of scissors. I added the star sticker to the right side, over the tape. Then added a sentiment by cutting the words from another roll of decorative tape. Total time: 3 minutes, maybe.
Quick Merry Christmas
For this one, same thing. Layer the decorative tape across the card and trim the excess. While placing the worded tape, I made sure that the words “Merry Christmas” were in the center of the card. Three dimensional stickers were added around the sentiment and voila, another card done. Total time: 3 minutes. Again, that’s generous.

Check out what the rest of the team has created! Hey look, that’s 5 (or more) cards for you to use if you are running behind, like me! :)
