It’s hard to decide which paper pack was more fun – Merry Little Christmas or Merry Music. I liked the fact that the Merry Music papers were thinner and worked perfectly for envelopes. But I’m a buffalo check fan! You see it everywhere this season – in home decor and fashion too! Here’s a simple card that makes a bold statement.
How to Make Merry Little Christmas Card
- The card base measures 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ and is cut from Whisper White Cardstock.
- The second layer measures 4″ x 5 1/4″ and is cut from Real Red Cardstock.
- The top layer measures 3 3/4″ x 5″ and is cut from the black and white buffalo check designer paper in the Merry Little Christmas paper pack.
- Top these layers with a silver snowflake using tape runner.
- Die cut the letters to spell JOY in real red cardstock. The large letters framelits are a great investment and work on cards, home decor, and scrapbook pages. I used foam strips to adhere them and get the raised look.
- Embellish your card with a 2″ strip of ribbon folded in half to make a banner. Top it with a black rhinestone and you’re done! TA DA!
Once you get your letters cut, this card goes together fairly quickly. It would be easy to make multiples of these for your Christmas card send out.
