December Card Challenge

Happy December everyone! Can't believe it is almost Christmas. Amazing! Well, the beginning of the month brings my new card challenge over at Scrapping the Moments. This month's challenge is a special project I especially love doing for Christmas. I call it a "Mini Album Card." I love mini albums and decided to use my card "vision" to do something with my supplies.

The challenge is to create one with your own theme, colors and designs. This is a fun little project you can make with your kids or a friend. Once it is personalized this is a terrific gift that someone would cherish!

Ok, here is how I did mine.
  1. I used 1-12x12 cardstock, cut in half into 2-6x6 pieces.
  2. Then I folded each to make 2 cards.
  3. I decorated all the surfaces with patterned paper. 
  4. I love creating the pockets with the tags and the blank red squares for pics. I used pop dots on 3 sides to make the pocket
  5. Finally, I staples the middle to hold it together.
Take a look!

Used Echo Park pp, red cardstock, red glitter cardstock, red glitter tulle, die cuts, and pop dots.

Love using my Spellbinder to make these scalloped pockets.

Join us over at Scrapping the Moments for this fun challenge and other holiday projects presented by our wonderful design team.
