Hooray! It's July 1! And you know what that means to us crafters, don't you? Christmas in July has officially begun!

If you're like me, you have lots of snippets of leftover Designer Series Papers lying around amongst your stash. This card gives a great opportunity to use up quite a few of them!

Grab a variety of Christmas-flavored DSP and go to town with either the hexagon punch, if you still have yours, or a hexagon die. Once you have a handful of these little cuties, you are ready to create your first Christmas card of the season.

By combining your design made up of lots of Christmasy hexagons with a fun dimensional background and a diecut seasonal message, you have a quick and easy card.

Since the card is pretty obvious to put together just by looking at it, here is a list of the supplies you will need:

White cardstock
Real Red cardstock
Assortment of seasonal Designer Series Paper scraps

Die Cutting/Embossing machine
A hexagon punch or die
A seasonal word die
Stripes and Splatters embossing folders (page 169, Annual Catalog) or anything that provides good           texture
Red cord
White sequins

A merry heart doeth good like medicine.

  1. This is such a fun way to use up all those DSP scraps. I'm sure I have tons of Christmas one lying around.

    1. Thanks, Joanne! It is definitely a good way to use them! I love hearing from you!
