Festive Friday 6-10

Good morning and welcome to another edition of Festive Fridays. If you are new to us, sit back, grab a cup of coffee, relax and enjoy some wonderful Christmas Cards. Yes, I did say Christmas...Festive Fridays will be every other Friday with samples of Christmas cards. This way, you can be making your cards all year long and you will avoid the mad rush when you could be enjoying the Christmas Season. You should have just come from Debbie. If you stumbled upon this post you can go back to Terri and start at the beginning. There is also a complete list of the Festive Friday hop on the left sidebar under the Festive Fridays blinkie in case you get lost along the way.

As most of you know I also design for a company called Creative Paperclay...well I used something I made out of the paperclay.  I thought it would be fun to make some christmas tree ornaments.  All you need is some paperclay, cookie cutter and your imagination.  Hehehe.  After it dried, about 24 hours, I painted the tree and added some puffy white paint and then "blotted" it a bit to look kinda like snow.  I added a piece of gold embroidery floss for the hanger and there you have it. 
I just made a basic card using some real cute christmas tree paper and a little bit of ribbon.  I used a simple stamp and attached a little sentiment tag.  Then I attached the christmas tree ornament to the front of the card with removable tape.  Now you have a simple gift with a card.
I hope you like my Festive Friday card and hope to see you back in two weeks for another christmas card.  Now head on over to Angela and check out what she has for you.


  1. What a great idea to include the gift/ornament on the front of the card. The tree and the card are beautiful. So glad that you are getting a jump on your Christmas cards. You must have a pretty good stash so far.

  2. Great idea doing an ornament and a card together. With the paperclay I'm sure it wouldn't even cost extra for postage :)

  3. Love this... great tree and love this paper!!!
