Altered Christmas Card -Quick Changes to Personalize Your Cards

Do not have enough time to make your own Christmas cards? How about adding some personal touches to store-bought cards. Here’s a quick easy way to make a few changes and fancy things up! Start out with this plain card.....

**[Disclaimer! I know it is already late into December..., but this post is very appropiate for me because I am still writing our Christmas cards. There must be someone out there on my schedule? :) Wish the pictures were a little better too. :)

You will need:
Simple store-bought cards
corner rounder
embossing folder –border type (polka dots) {Oops, not pictured}
white Enamel Accents, dimensional faux enamel

I chose the border embossing folder because I wanted to be able to write on both sides inside the card. After embossing the card, I added accent dots with the white Enamel Accents and rounded the top corners only, with the ½ inch size.
Quick and easy!

To jazz up the envelope, I ran it through a different style border embossing folder. Sorry, not a great pic. (Wondering what the circle is? Just covering up our address!)

And now you have a completed Work of Art! That's what it feels like, anyway. :)
