Handmade Christmas Cards (using Tim Holtz idea-ology collage paper Christmas/Noel)

Hello my crafty friends! The other day my husband and I were out Christmas shopping. We were near a Joann craft store, so I wanted to see if they had any of Tim Holtz 2021 Christmas products. The only thing I came across was this collage paper Christmas/Noel. I was so happy to get that. I live in a small town and our Joann don’t carry any of Tim Holtz products. I always order on line or go to a Joanns out of town. Came home and couldn’t wait to play with his Christmas collage paper.

Merry Christmas
I always do something inside the card to match the front. And I like to write a personal note when It comes to Christmas.
Here’s everything I used….

Hope you guys try this technique too. With anything you have in your stash. Thank you for checking out my blog. Have a wonderful day and weekend.
