Welcome to my NEW Arts & Crafts Blog!

Welcome to my little creative corner of the web I like to call: Artzee Chris' Cool Creations. For as long as I can remember I have loved to draw, paint, sew, craft, knit, crochet, color, cross stitch, embroider, scrapbook, you name it: if it had anything to do with Arts & Crafts I was on board and still am. For a long while I've been wanting to create a place where I could share cool ideas, crafts, art, supplies, and basically all things arty and crafty with others like me who share my passion. Artzee Chris' Cool Creations is this place and I can't wait to get this party started! With each new post I plan on showcasing a crafting project or offering up some really great free stuff that you will be able to download and print out for free on your own printer.

So without further hesitation, here is my first project that I've put together!

Gardening Glove Greeting Card & Matching Envelope

This sweet card is a wonderful way to wish someone Happy Mother's Day or send a Spring Greeting out to that special person.

Artzee Chris' Crafting Rating: Easy

Here is a list of Materials you will need:

  • One 12" x 12" light tan or offwhite cardstock (important: the cardstock need to be the same color on both sides)
  • One 12" x 12" scrapbook paper needs to be lightcolor and simple design. This is the paper you will be making your custom envelope from so the design and color need to be light and subtle enough for you to write an address that is ledgible for the post office
  • One piece of scrapbook paper that is about 4" x 4" and is color coordinated to your envelope paper
  • One packet of flower seeds your choice. It's nice to try to coordinate the seed packet colors to the scrapbook paper colors
  • Scissors
  • Thin line black marker
  • Pencil
  • Eraser
  • Card Templates printed and cut out for use
