Christmas Present Card
I made this super-easy and super-quick Christmas card, using a green card base, red torn mulberry paper, raffia, and a paper tag with an eyelet. I attached the raffia bow with Zots. I think it turned out really cute, and took under 5 minutes! (Such a bonus, when mass-producing for family!). The tag was just a circle punch, and then I used another punch for the snowflake center.
Here's a handy tip for tearing mulberry paper: use a paintbrush or those craft brushes you can fill with water, and gently trace along where you want the paper to tear (w/a bit of water). The water will dry quickly, and your paper will tear super-easy! :o)
Kindergarten teacher by day, and self-proclaimed crafting nightowl. I enjoy long walks with my Gypsy, iced mochas, and salivate over the newest papers, embellishments, Stampin' Up products, and Cricut cartridges available. While I LOVE my job as a kindergarten teacher, I need a creative outlet in my downtime. For me, this comes in the form of scrapbooking, cardmaking, cake decorating, and other miscellaneous crafts. I am a woman who is forever 29. Artist. Married with furry and slimy children (cats, dogs, & fish). And, in case you can't tell by the blog name, I'm obsessed with frogs. :o) I'm ready to try new things...let's see where this journey takes me!
