Hello! I am back with a card!
Christmas is round the corner, have you start making any xmas gift yet?
I decided to make a simple christmas card which many of you can create easily for your friends and family. You can always google for card sketches for some inspirations on laying out your card. For this, I was inspired from this week Mojo Monday’s inspiration #375!
And here’s my take for the card:
It is pretty easy to follow the sketch. All you need to do is to layer your pieces of paper according to the sketch.
For my card, I actually layer my desired patterned paper (Kraisercraft) over black cardstock. If you like to create a texture pattern like what I did, you can embossed the patterned paper using embossing plate. For my card, I used Sizzix Snowflake embossing plate to create a lovely texture. Otherwise, you can add some glitter or leave it as it is if you do not have any embossing tool. The layering will still help to give the card a more classic yet simple look 🙂
Next, you get a piece of white cardstock which is to be used for the middle of the card and cut accordingly (smaller than the patterned paper) as shown in the sketch.
Stamp your favorite season’s greeting or you can even write yourself! For my card, I wet embossed the sentiments (Inkadinkado warm holiday wish stamp)using versamark ink and black glitter embossing powder to give the sentiments a shiny look. Distress the edges of the paper with desired colour you want using ink pad to create a soft border(I used Faded Jeans Tim Holtz Distress ink) and distress the edges to create a “torn” look. Again, it is up to you whether you prefer a clean look with no torn edges.
Now comes the final part! In the sketch, the circle indicate anything you wish to add on. It can anything ranging from your favorite Christmas embellishments which you get from value shops or craft shop, or you can simply make one of your own! I love making paper snowflakes so I decided to make my own embellishment for this card.
I used my Silhouette CAMEO to cut out the snowflake and give it some love by adding glitter to it. I love glitters so most of my cards will have glitter, and this one is no exception!
I embossed my snowflake using glitter embossing powder, and it turned out looking gorgeous! If you do not have the embossing tool, grab some glitter glue, it will work pretty well too!
Use foam tape to paste the embellishment onto the center of your card. Foam tape will help to create a 3D look which make the card looks even fantastic. 😉
There you have it!
Great for making duplicates if you need to make many cards at once 🙂
Have fun! ❤
