We are winding down with this series… only a few more left to post.  See them all here.  Hopefully you’ve been inspired by this feature.  Did you make handmade cards this year?  If you did, send us a link and we’ll link up to them in a future post.

1)  Cut cardstock to 9" x 4 1/2".  Score at 4 1/2" and fold.
2)  Cut patterned paper (stripe) to 4 1/8" x 3 1/2 and (word print) to 3 3/4" squared.
3)  Adhere word print to stripe.
4)  Cut ribbon & tie into a bow.  Using twine/hemp, tie a button around the bow then tape the right side of ribbon to underside of patterned papers.  Adhere to cardstock base.
5)  Glue die-cut snowflake to top of button, adding a rhinestone & then gluing entire ribbon/button ensemble to card.
6)  Glue "joy" to top of journaling sheer, adding sticker letters for "Christmas."
7)  Glue to top of card, adding a rhinestone star to top of tree.
