March Christmas Card

Yikes... this is posted a little late. I thought I had done a post that was set to automatically publish yesterday, but obviously I was wrong!

Our assignment over at Christmas Cards All Year 'Round for March was to make a Christmas card using green and leaves in honor of St. Patty's Day. It's been fun to create different Christmas Cards outside of the Christmas Season. I do admit though, it's getting tougher for me. I'm sure it'll be even harder once the weather decides to warm up!

Though the card looks really small it measures 5x5. I started by cutting out a bunch of holly leaves with my Cricut in two different sizes. I then piled them up in a circle to create a wreathe. Add a red ribbon bow and some red brads and it's a cute Christmas wreathe.

I felt like the card needed another layer that wasn't green, but wouldn't distract the eye very much. That's when I remembered this piece of gold foil I've been wanting to use. It's actually a recycled sheet from hubby's gourmet coffee! It's absolutely perfect! I love it when I can recycle in this craft. And I bet you wouldn't even know there was recycled "trash" on this card if I hadn't told you!


  1. I love this card Denise, love all the little holly leaves made into a wreath :)

  2. No way - very inventive and so cute! Love the coffee foil salvage!
