Quick Holiday Cards + Amazing Recipe

I'm experiencing DEEP shock that we are already halfway through August! DEEP SHOCK.


I saw people starting to make holiday cards and realized that yes, it's indeed time. I have some SUPER fun Halloween stuff coming, but with the temperature dropping to 99 degrees - BRR - I thought I'd share some tips for super quick holiday cards.

I LOVE these puffy gold holiday stickers - I was such a huge fan of the gold stickers that were all the rage in the late 1900s in stamping, and these are even better because they are dimensional. Do y'all remember a technique with the flat gold stickers? I'm wracking my brain trying to remember it. 

Anyway, I used my MIS-T ruler and my glassboard to line them up perfectly on a horizontal - the little markings on the ruler help you space them perfectly as well. I right justified them using the ruler too and added the little star from the sticker set. PS they also have alphabet ones if you want to DIY your sentiment.

That was time well spent, because the only thing left to do was add the adorable little VW ephemera and BOOM - done and dusted! Love the gold accents on the ephemera. There's a tag set as well I'll be using - I will just go ahead and admit I'm a terrible stamper and rarely stamp my own tags, so WINNING.

I used more of the ephemera and more of the stickers for this quick wreath card too! The background is this foiled paper. Easy peasy & cute!
