A Ghost of Christmas Past

Hello, Crafty Makers!

Christmas is not a holiday that I celebrate and, in the past, I would not create projects with Christmas related themes.  This year, I decided that I would send Christmas cards to my friends who do celebrate this holiday.  Sadly, half of the cards had been mailed before I decided to create this blog post!

Cards for the Ghost of Christmas Present
Because of my limited supply of Christmas dies and stamps, I had to keep my designs simple.  I was able to create cards quickly and reduce my stash!
The tree was cut from kraft card (I cut three and glued them together to add dimension).  I applied glue using a glue stick and then sprinkled it with glitter.

Happy Holidays!
