Let’s get into the groove of Holiday DIY cards with this month’s craft – Pinning for Plaid theme.

I took out my stamping block from my first box and got started with stamping some fun seasons greetings on the cards.

Next, using the adhesive dots, I stuck the acrylic sheet to the back of the circles.

Then I removed the dimensional backing (already sticky) and applied it to the back of the circled cards.

Now the fun stuff! I added in the different sequins on the backing and attached our stamped card at the back to close the opening with the adhesive dots.

Next, I used the plaid cards and glued the above creation on the front using the provided adhesive strips. Love that you get everything needed to complete the project – literally from start to finish, and that is the best part!

Verdict


Another phenomenal do-it-yourself craft project from Paper Pumpkin! As always the quality of the materials was top-notch and the instructions were crystal clear, making it literally a breeze to follow through! At the end, the cards turned out beautifully and certainly added a personal touch. These would be so much better than the store-bought cards and I totally see the oomph factor here. I can’t wait to pass these on to family and friends as soon as the holiday season starts! 🙂
