I’m back with another day of holiday-themed cards. I wanted to continue using up some of my 6×6 paper stacks and decided to go with one of my all-time favorite ways of adding a sentiment to cards. I used some rub-on appliques from Little Yellow Bicycle. I love the opaque results an applique can give to a card and it is a no-mess solution as well. I like to cut up an applique sheet and separate the images so that I don’t transfer any images I don’t want accidentally. There are many tools out there that are designed to help get the image on, but honestly, a simple craft stick will work just as well.
To finish off the card I made a faux stitched white line using a gel pen. I think this is a great way to create some beautiful cards for the holidays with minimal supplies needed.
Here’s a quick video on how it all came together.
Here’s a closer look at the finished cards.
With the extra bit of paper trimmed from the background, I created an additional card. I used the same stitched line around the edge and added a simple sentiment from the paper stack.
Thanks so much for stopping by and I’ll see you again real soon for another project.
