December’s card of the month is, of course, a Christmas card. I love making our cards each year. In fact, I’m currently rushing to finish making this year’s batch so that I can get them mailed in time for Christmas – taking just enough time out to write this blog post!
This card is still probably my most favorite ever.
I cut the oven mitt and rolling pin out using my Cricut. For the cookie sheet I used a piece of silver card stock and folded up the edges. The doily is just a piece of white card stock punched with a round scallop punch and dotted with a silver pen. The gingerbread “Got Merry?” stamp was from Stampin’ Up several years ago. I used tiny brads for the buttons on the gingerbread cookie.
For the inside of the card I stamped “Merry Christmas” and added a potholder also cut out using the Cricut to match the oven mitt on the front of the card. I used a little silver brad to “hang” the potholder on the inside of the card.
Even though it had a lot of parts and was a little labor intensive, this card will always be one of my favorites. I love how it tuned out!
