Last-minute cards - just in time!

Last-minute cards - just in time!

Julie Heyer

Create beautiful last-minute cards for those special people on your list. If you are anything like me, you are running a tad behind in making and sending out Holiday cards this year. Here are some fun and easy card designs to help inspire your creativity.

Last-Minute Cards - "Pinspired" Idea

Choose a fun card design on Pinterest that can be recreated quickly with supplies in your stash.

Pinterest Inspiration -

Trim 12x12 Happy Camper Dk. Blue and Slate plains at 8.5" with the grain direction running vertically. Rotate each 8.5x12 horizontally and trim at 11". Score each 8.5x11 vertically at 4.25". Trim the scored 8.5x11 horizontally at 5.5" to create four card bases. Cut each 3.5x12 horizontally at 9.5 and 4.75".

Trim a Happy Camper Hybrid kit print (leftover from my Camper project into four 3.5x3.75" panels.

Cut four Lt. Blue papers from the Happy Camper panels into 4x5.25" panels.

Emboss the Dk. Blue and Slate panels with a Darice snowflake folder. Layer with the plaid Hybrid kit prints and adhere to the embossed panels.

Die cut Sizzix snowflake embellishments from the Happy Camper Lt. Blue plain panels. Adhere clear sequins to the snowflakes with Bookbinding Glue dispensed with a Needle-tipped Applicator.

Stamp the Holiday Mail "Merry Christmas" sentiment onto thin strips of Lt. Blue and adhere to the plaid panels with Sapphire Hybrid Ink.

Let's take another look at the completed cards.

May your holiday season be filled with happiness and joy!
