Make Christmas Cards All Year Round with the Kids!
GlueArts Designer: Lesley Langdon

Whenever your kids come to you and ask to make something, you can always make a stamped Christmas card, and by the time Christmas rolls around, you and your kids can gather them up, sign them, and send them off, and all feel like you did something worthwhile together. Look for simple images that the kids can color without difficulty, such as these sweet Lawn Fawn stamps.

Supplies:
Lawn Fawn Stamps (Cozy Christmas)
Spellbinders Dies (Labels Twenty)
October Afternoon Patterned Paper, Buttons, and Die Cuts (Holiday Style)
American Crafts White Cardstock
Pitch Black Adirondack Ink by Ranger
Copic Markers (YG25 green, R59 red) 
The Twinery Twine
Watercolor Paper (White)

Instructions:

1. Die cut label from white watercolor paper, stamp stockings and sentiment in black ink. Color with Copic Markers.

2. Make card from white cardstock. Adhere piece of patterned paper with Glue Arts Glue Glider Pro.
3. Adhere label to card with Glue Arts U-Cut-It Foam.

4. Adhere star die cut, button and twine with Glue Arts Extreme Adhesive Squares.

5. Pile cards up and wait for Christmas to send them out! You and your family will be ahead of the game!
