I've had a busy weekend, trying to make as many Christmas cards as possible. When you live overseas, you have to think early -- otherwise, your friends and family might not receive their holiday cards in time! And living in the UAE, I'm not really sure how much selection we will have in Christmas cards. So I'm doing what I do best -- make my cards!
The attached cards feature a folding technique, Double Pocket Cards, which was featured in October's issue of the techniquejunkie newsletter (www.techniquejunkes.com).
I'm mathematically challenged, and I was unsure if I'd be able to figure out the folding. However, I followed the instructions and photo samples very carefully, and I discovered that this card is really easy!
This card is great for the holidays because you can stuff gift cards, cash and family photos into the pockets, along with the tags. Size your holiday photo to 3 by 5 inches, and put it onto one of the tags.
The papers come from two of my favorite companies, BoBunny and Creative Imaginations. The card with the whimsy Christmas trees and stickers is from Creative Imaginations and artist Debbie Mumm. The burgundy and green colored papers with gingerbread and stars are from BoBunny. The tags feature corresponding stickers.
