Time has been flying since we moved. Getting adjusted to the new town and even the new time zone for us has been exciting. But with all of the great distractions, it is time to get started and make time for getting creative and to make our handmade Christmas Cards.
This year I need to incorporate our new address along with a Christmas theme. So I decided to make a Christmas ornament using the Joys of the Season Cricut Cartridge, and a We’ve Moved rubber stamp from PSX. (I just wish this stamp had two cats in the window to represent my two boys).
Now deciding what color to make the ornament and back panel. I choose………. Christmas green and red (how appropriate – LOL)
I used the Cricut Expression Machine to cut the ornaments. Then I used a Cutter Bee paper trimmer to cut the red back panel.
Some other supplies that I will use is Copic Sketch markers, Elmer’s permanent dot runner, pop dots, natural polished hemp rope, Memento tuxedo black dye ink, and some sea shells from our beach (if you don’t have a beach near by, then you can always purchase shell online or in a craft store).
I printed our address on blue cardstock and used an oval paper punch from punch bunch to cut them out. The reason why I had to do that was the space that the stamp provided was way to small for our address and if I did write that tiny, no one would have been able to read it. So when I stamped the image on white cardstock I just masked that part of the image so it wouldn’t stamp. Then to add some dimension I used a pop dot to raise the address from the card. The finishing touch was attaching the sea shell with the hemp rope along with our inside message.
