This season it’s all about making your own inspiring Christmas Cards.  Let these cards be an inspiration to get your creative juices flowing.  Using imagery from The Vintage Workshop and some basic supplies that can be found at your local craft supply store (many of you probably have things around the house already) you can create your own handmade cards this season that will have your friends feeling special.

Here are some helpful tips! Use your imaging software to add your own text to vintage images. Add glitter, mica snow or other embellishments to give your card dimension.  Wonder tape or double sided tape is perfect for all paper projects.

Save money by customizing dollar store cards. By adding vintage imagery to cards that already have a great message, you can get an elegant look without the expensive price tag.

Let us be your resource for timeless imagery and creative inspiration. Until next time…

    The ideas are very helpful — love the suggestion about embellishing with mica snow! Because there are “snowy” Valentine’s Day images, I can’t wait to try mica on those cards and gifts as well.

    Can you tell me more about Mica Snow? Do you use a spray adhesive and then dust this product on? I make machine embroidered cards and this would be great on them. I just need to know the process of adhering to surfaces. Thanks

    Hey Sandy, It’s even easier than that - think elementary school glue! White glue or any glue that dries clear will work. I like the orange tip school bottle like my son is required to buy for school because I can “draw” lines with it. Then just sprinkle it on and shake off. You use it pretty much the same way you would use glitter - it’s just a bigger flake size. I know you will love it. Please send us pictures of your finished products. We’d love to share it with our blog readers. Good luck!! Cheryl
