A Card A Month

Hey there everyone thanks for stopping by today.  As the holidays have come to an end and the decorations come down I must admit i'm already thinking of gifts for next year!!  I know i'm not crazy and some of you are thinking of that also, you may have even grabbed some good deals with all of the after Christmas sales!

One thing i'm creating for a handmade gift for next year is a set of cards.  Cards for all occasions!  I want to make one or two cards a month just for this gift and then put them in a nice box for next year.  I figured there is no better time to start then first thing in the new year.  I'm going to share my first card creation for my gift box with you today.

Lets start with the amazing Die-namite die that I used to create this one.  I love adding things to the corners of cards so I used the Scrolly Corner on this one.

I created this card using the Graphic 45 collection Time To Celebrate.  I thought everyone needs a little Congratulations card to send out for something during the year!!

You can see I tied a little ribbon on the left side, which left the right side of the card a little plain....just the perfect spot to add the Scrolly Corner to.  I added a little Walnut Stain distress ink to it (not to much), then ran it through my Xyron 510 and placed it on the card.

Hopefully after I create these cards and box them up I will still want to give them away!!!

Supplies Used:
Die-namites - Scrolly Corner
Graphic 45 - Time To Celebrate
May Arts - Green ribbon
Xyron - Mega Runner, foam squares, 510

Thanks so much for stopping by the blog today.  I hope this inspires you to create more handmade cards this year!
