Are you ready to get in the Christmas spirit this week? Emma and the My Creative Time design team are sharing some fun projects to give you some ideas for your holiday crafting! My project today is perfect for that college or even high school student in your life who is counting down to Christmas, but also trying to get through finals beforehand!
To make this fun card, I started with an A2 card base in aqua mist cardstock. I trimmed a cute piece of patterned paper from Simple Stories December Documented collection to 4 1/4" x 5 1/4" and cut an oval out of it with one of the dies from My Creative Time's Scallop Stitched Oval Dies. To make this layer a little thicker, I cut a piece of white cardstock the same way, and adhered it behind the patterned paper.
To get my "snow," I used one of the Fun Sitched Edges Dies. Then I made my adorable snowman using the Winter Snowman Dies. The sweet jumbo coffee mug was made with a die from All You Need is Coffee, and I used another die from that set to get the little heart "steam" coming out of the cup.
To make my sentiment, I masked off part of a stamp in the My Favorite Sayings stamp set to get "With a little caffeine," and then I used individual letters in Alpha Pack to make the rest.
On the inside of the card, I made a little pocket for a Starbucks gift card with the Tag Gift Pocket Die and adorned it with a snowflake made with one of the Winter Flake Dies. Hopefully my nephew will make it through finals with this extra little boost of caffeine!
