  • Christmas card

    My wife and I started a tradition last year . We make custom cards to send out with an ornament attached that can be peeled off and hung on the tree.
    This is this years version. Six stacks of six 1/16 Finish birch with sparkly stuff on the star.

      Rolf, I love it!! Did you find the cards pre-cut that way or did you have to cut your own card stock?? I got the brainy idea of making my own Christmas cards this year!! They are pretty simple, but I waited a bit late and am now struggling to get them done. I scrolled the design in green card stock and put a heavy gold piece under it. Scrolled my initials on the back. Maybe next year I could start a little earlier!! Probably not, I'm the master procrastinator!!!

      I do like your your idea very much!! It's something the recipient can keep and use forever!! Can I borrow that idea for next year??

        Rolf, very nice and very good idea. If I may ask what did you use to stick the ornament to the Card?

          We've got some imaginative and creative members on this forum . Those are both smashing Christmas ideas, Cathy and Rolf. I may just have to copy one (or both) of you next year if I can get my act together.

          In my household it's usually a case of, "OMG we haven't sent the cards out yet!" .

            Those are both really nice ideas, Rolf and Cathy.

            Glad I'm not the only one who leaves Christmas cards till last minute - Sue would say not just Christmas cards ..lol We did manage to get the ones going overseas mailed ON the last day - others are still sitting here ..

              They both look really nice. That is a clever way to get your talent out to everyone you know too.
              I love reading all the tips and ideas I see on hear.

                I really like what you did. I love the green gold combination.
                Last year I cut out a pattern in paper that I was just going to stick to card stock but then my wife suggested that instead of the paper to use a real ornament.
                We bought the card stock at AC Moore a local arts and crafts supplier, it was pre cut for 4 x 6 photos. It was a royal pain to print on the inside because the thick stock kept getting caught in the printer. (A snifter of Gran Marnier lubricated the pain)

                Last year I used a Scotch brand roll on rubber adhesive . It is used for mounting photos. The adhesive is not permanent and the ornaments peel off easily.
                The attached picture is last years card. Blank card stock, gold wrapping paper and green craft paper. I think the ornament is a BJ Holms design (one of my all time favorites)

                    Cutting a straight line I get it started then plant my thumb at the side of the piece and use that to stabilize the cutting path, a bit like the pin you would use on a bandsaw when resawing old style.

                    We went to Groff & Groff yesterday. Purple Heart wood is stuck on a boat somewhere. They said imported exotic and hardwoods are stuck on boats. So if you see a wood you need, grab it while you can.

                    He has 4 of the long ones, but we have other sizes that he uses for clamping up his cheese board slicers, another good seller. They go for $35, left over wood from dough board. On late shift yesterday because I took a 2 hour nap around 7. Off to the saw! I have 8 days of shows in 2 weekends! And one...

                    What Carole said. The lips are 1 1/2”, holds the board to the counter and keeps the flour from going off the back. After gluing them to the board, he drilled stainless screws through the lip into the board and made plugs to fill the holes. The board is 3/4” thick. Since he only has 4 large Bessy...
