Hello again! Sorry for three posts in one day! I have been behind in my blogging but I have been busy in the craft room! I’m still working on Christmas cards! Yikes! Time is slipping away fast! Instead of making a dozen individual designs (like I did last year and got creatively drained for a month), I decided to mass produce two or three designs for my sanity and time management.
This set of cards is the first design I finished. I made five of these and when I was done I had silver glitter speckled all over me (in my hair, on my jeans, stuck to my fingers, you name it!) Using glitter can be messy but I love the sparkle! It adds to that Christmas magic we feel this time of year.
All of the die-cut images (sleigh, reindeer, and the word “Joy” are from my Potpourri Basket cartridge. They are originally from Joys of the Season.
- Kraft card base – 5×7
- Black cardstock mat – 4 1/2 x 6 1/2 inches
- Snow Drifts – cut a 4 1/2 x 6 1/2 piece of white cardstock then cut that in half – ripped off the top edge of each piece creating snow bank – overlapped one layer on top of the other and highlighted it with Stardust stickles
- Sleigh – 2 1/4 inches
- Reindeer – 3 inches
- Joy – 1 1/2 inches
I cut the sleigh and reindeer out of black cardstock, then used Elmer’s Craft Bond adhesive spray to coat it entirely, and then sprinkled silver glitter on top. I had to make sure to thump the excess off very well so that it’s not too messy for the recipient.
I used a white gel pen to add faux stitching to the Kraft card base and I also made tiny red bows using my homemade “bow easy” to add some color to the reindeer.
The inside sentiment was typed in Word using the Edwardian Script font.
Thanks for checking out this set of Christmas cards!
