Christmas is Coming! K-Mart Christmas Cards Part 2

Hey Everyone! Here is another Christmas card idea made exclusively with craft suppliers from K-Mart. Its so easy as well as being affordable!

This is what you will need  – all of it can be purchased from the Craft Department at K-Mart except for the Washi tape which you will find in the stationary area.

Here is how you wake them:

With the gold paint pump bottles spray the cards carefully with paint. Make sure you have a good drop sheet to help protect everything else in your work area from the over spray. Don’t worry if the spray looks uneven or there are some bigger splatters here and there as the finished effect will look fine. The cards will curl a little because of the moisture but they should flatten out as they dry. If you are impatient like me use a small desk fan to quicken up the drying process
