Handmade Christmas cards – The holidays are coming quickly, there still some time left for Homemade Christmas crafts and cards! When I need to make a lot of cards, I like to pick a product that makes it easier to to choose the colors and design. It helps me speed up my creative process. This year I have created a number of cards using felt embellishments created by Pebbles Inc from the Welcome Christmas line. I have three cards to share using some of these felt embellishments.

Supplies you need for your Handmade Christmas cards:  felt embellishments, white cardstock, 3-4 different sheets of patterned paper, rub-ons, favorite border punches, twine, a couple of brads and colored gems. I always have my paper trimmed, some sharp scissors handy as well as 3D foam pop dots handy.
