Home For the Holidays

It's time for another Card Caravan over at The Hybrid Chick! The new theme is "Holiday".  You can submit cards, or holiday projects that you have paper crafted.  A new challenge is posted every other Sunday and you have until 11:59PM EST the Friday night before a new one is posted, to enter.  So that means, you have until Friday December 21 to enter this challenge!

Here is the card that I created to help inspire you. This is a hybrid card. I used the brand new release Retrospect Christmas Scrapbook Kit by Quirky Twerp available at The DigiChick.

I printed out the red and green papers and then cut the rectangles.  For the Santa paper and the shaped mat, I created the shapes in Silhouette Studio and then simply dragged the papers in to fill the shapes. Easy-peasy!  I then print and cut those with my Cameo. Some ink on the edges gives everything a little extra depth.

The tree was created by cutting several tree shapes with the green paper. I folded the trees in half and glued the halves back-to-back to create a 3D tree.  This card will be hand delivered, it won't be going through the mail!

I could only find clear acrylic stars at the craft store. So I simply colored one with a Copic Marker ( Y15 Cadmium Yellow).

The ribbon is lightly folded back and forth on itself to create the elegant effect. Some doubled up foam double-sided adhesive gives the center of it support.

I hope you stop by the Card Caravan and share your latest holiday project!
