Time to meet card #9!
This one’s a fun one. Especially because it uses no Christmas supplies except for the sentiment. The trees are cut from some terrific banner paper from Teresa Collins. I just love it! It’s sized better for scrapbooking, but I thought it would be so fun to invert the banners and use them as trees instead!
The middle tree is adorned with some colorful brads to mimic colorful Christmas lights ( for all you colored Christmas lights people out there!). Some string wound around the brads makes a great garland.
My son especially liked this one, so maybe it could serve as a great card for the smaller people on your card giving list. Think nieces, nephews, students, neighbor kids, children’s friends, etc.
Comment here for your chance to win the prize package. This time tell me how you reach out to others at Christmas time. This year we did Operation Christmas Child. The kids and I had a great time shopping for items to put into the box. We also send a Christmas gift to Sabian, the child we sponsor through Compassion. Most times I try to drop my spare change into the Salvation Army buckets when I pass by, too. There are so many other opportunities to bless others especially at this time of the year. There’s Toys for Tots, Angel Tree and Operation Christmas Child, to name a few. I think it would be a great idea to volunteer at a local soup kitchen or offer services to the elderly or give a gift of groceries to a family in need. I like to do more. I think we can definitely do more.
How about you? Do you have any great ideas for sharing the love of Christmas this time of the year?
