Quick and Easy Set of 10 Mint Wishes Christmas Cards with Instructions


Quick and Easy Set of 10 Mint Wishes Christmas Cards with Instructions
Hello Crafty Friends,
Six months ago I was asked to make a Quick and Easy Set of Christmas cards by Melissa at Kaisercraft.  This set was for their special Retailer’s Day where people from crafty shops and Kaisercraft outlets come together at Kaisercraft headquarters and have a full day together.  I’m not sure exactly what they do on these days but I know they have crafty time and Melissa prepares kits for them to use.  I think this was one of the kits that were used.  These cards are also in the Kaisercraft Workshop Magazine for October and on the Kaisercraft Website here.
Any project you see in the Kaisercraft Workshop Magazine is also on the website with full Material Lists and Instructions for how to create the Project.  Just in case you are interested in something you see, you can go to the website, search for that collection and find the instructions.
Anyway, I hadn’t blogged these cards yet so I thought I might get them up before Christmas Day.  Full Instructions for each card are below…
