Christmas Cards - December Creative Kit from My Creative Scrapbook

Hello friends. For My Creative Scrapbook I created a couple of Christmas cards using the fabulous December Creative Kit featuring the "Cozy and Bright" collection from Pebbles Inc. I've made three layouts with this kit, so for this project I thought I'd create a set of Christmas cards. And although the cards were already up on the MCS blog and Christmas has come and gone, I thought I'd still share them here on my blog.

All Pebbles collections contain at least one sheet that's just perfect to create cards with. In this case it's the "Merry Little Christmas" paper. Here are the cards I made with it:


All with just this one sheet "Merry Little Christmas":


I started by cutting all the 3"x 4" cards apart:


Next I cut pieces of patterned paper just a little bit larger and glued the cards on top:



I used my sewing machine to stitch around the edges:


For the card base I chose red and green cardstock and cut them a bit larger than these matted cards, but twice as wide and folded them in half to create a card base:


Most of the cards I adhered straight away to the cardstock base (using double sided adhesive tape), but in some cases I added one of the fun die-cuts first:


Other cards I embellished later, adding a die-cut or sticker, like here: 



Some were so very cute, they needed no extra's:


And some could use a bit of glitter:


I was done in no time at all! and I really love the result:


As I always love to receive handmade cards, I thought it would be nice to send a few handmade cards as well. Hope you like them too!

Last but not least a photo of the December Creative Kit:

  1. Good evening! !
    It is 9:30 PM on 30th Japan time now.
    It is the custom of Japan's year end.
    In the year end, we say “Yoi otoshi wo” to each other wishing for the coming
    year to be pleasurable.
    The New Year season is the most significant season for the Japanese.
    All the Christmas d├ęcor is switched to the New Year’s in a blink.
    Major New Year icons are the pine tree, bamboo, plums and so on. All of them are symbols of good fortune and longevity.
