Last Minute Christmas Cards! 1-2-3 Card December 2017

by - Friday, December 22, 2017

Hi friends and Happy Holidays! Christmas is only a few days away, and if you're like me, there's always one or two people you need a last-minute card for. This month's 1-2-3 Card Design is perfect for using up scraps and creating those last-minute cards in a flash!

As you know by now, my 1-2-3 Cards can be made quickly and easily with 1 Sentiment2 Paper  Shapes and 3 Embellishments. They are easy, fast and fun! This month I'm using the lovely frosty papers from Creative Memories Glacier Collection, but instead of using the coordinating stickers, I'm using two sizes of punched stars as embellishments.  Using punched shapes is an easy way to create many embellishments, especially when you don't have coordinating stickers of die-cuts. They are also great when you are making cards in bulk as you can make them all the same. If you have a Cricut or other die-cutting machine - that will work great too, and probably will be even quicker!

Each month I provide you with a FREE printable handout that shows the card sketch in both vertical and horizontal formats, gives you the measurements of the paper shapes, and includes a picture of the two sample cards for inspiration. And, each month I also create a how-to video that shows you just how easily and quickly the cards come together! So go get a holiday beverage and sit back for a few minutes to watch!


Here's a few pics of the completed cards...





Do you have any last minute cards to create? If you're all set for Christmas, then by all means use this month's sketch to create some cards for any other upcoming holiday or occasion! I'd LOVE to see what you create, please consider sharing your cards on my Facebook group to show us how YOU used the sketch! 

Don't forget to click here to download your copy of the handout with the sketch and dimensions so you can make your own cards, and leave a comment here and/or under the video on my YouTube Channel to be entered for a chance to win a little card kit with everything you need to make these two cards! (Winner of card kit will be randomly chosen from all comments on blog post and YouTube Video comments and announced at the end of December.)

Happy crafting!
