Crafty Christmas Club: March

Hey everybody!! Me and some of my crafty peeps decided to do a monthly Christmas project hop, and this is the first one.  Who wants to join us for some monthly encouragement and inspiration for your Christmas needs?

And it could not come at a better time. We could use a little positive distraction with the events of the world right now.  Many people are on stay-at-home orders, lockdown, or self quarantine. What better time to work on some Christmas crafts,  right?!

For this month's project, I decided to work on cards for gift card-giving. I used the Concord and 9th Christmas Cheer turnabout with the Honey Bee Stamps Coffee Cup Card dies to start these out.

I started with this red one, which is ink blended with Distress Oxides in Worn Lipstick and Candied Apple for the reds, and Pine Needles for the green.

The Christmas Cheer turnabout is White Satin Pearl heat embossed over top of the ink blending. And all of this was done on the the paper after it was die cut with the Coffee Cup Card die.

The poinsettia is made with the dies from the Spellbinders Card Kit of the Month for November 2019- Christmas Wishes. The sentiment banner was cut, the stamped. All of it is popped up with the help of coaster blanks.

Inside, I used one of the Coffee Cup Card dies to cut the smaller cup shape and added Lawn Fawn Simple Gift Card Slots before gluing that to the inside of the card.

Next up is the green version. Same process, just using Iced Spruce and Pine needles Distress Oxides on the cup body this time.

I also used some embossing powder from the November 2018 My Monthly Hero, which is a mix of dark green and gold. Turns out, I really like it! It does well with detailed images.

Now I need to make a pile of these! I want to have stuff ready not just for me to use, but my family and for craft fairs. I better get to work!

I have a list (with links) of the supplies I used at the end of this post.
