So, I decided to get crafty and bring my own touch of gold to the holidays. I had so much fun stamping away, that I made enough cards to last a lifetime. Or, since I've already done the majority of my Christmas cards, to sell on etsy...
They turned out even better than I imagined in my head. I like the mix of ink and paint and kraft and white. It's a beautiful combination.
But no need to buy mine! Make your own! Nothing makes me happier than an easy DIY :)
For this project, I bought blank cards and envelopes at Michael's, ran them through my printer to get an oversized and slanted "Merry", and then used my Martha foam circle sponges and craft paint to create gold dots. I mixed a gold and silver metallic paint to get the "perfect" gold.
I think the kraft cards look great with a white envelope, and vice versa, so we did a little switcheroo!
The best part? You can be as random as you like with the dots! If you don't have a perfect pattern, like the one above, you can just make it look like confetti!
Have you crafted your own Christmas cards before?
