And then Christmas is really coming and….. You really still need to send some Christmas cards. I always try to make a different card for everyone, personal, with a joke, beautiful, classic or with a light. But every year I’m short of cards. How nice it is if you can still make nice homemade cards in a bit of pace. Like this one, for example.
Still nice and pretty quick made.
I made 6 in a short time, and I’ll show you how I did it.
So a mini-workshop.
These are the products I used.
Step 1: Cut 6 pieces of white soft finish cardstock measuring 9.5 x 13.8 cm.
Step 2: Sprinkle some color burst on each. A tiny bit is more than enough.
Step 3: Spray some water on it and let it dry or dry it with the heat tool.
You can also create a background with the Watercolor palette from E.C.D.
Step 4: Give the edges a tan. I used distress ink crackling campfire. Stick it on a blank card of 10.5 x 14.8 cm or fold half a A4 sheet double. Give that a touch of color too.
Step 5: Cut a reindeer head from white soft finish cardstock and color it with distress ink (Crackling campfire or color of choice). Then sprinkle some Glaze embossing powder over top.
Step 6: Die cut Merry Christmas from white cardstock backed with clear double sided adhesive tape. Die cut on the side where the tape is so you get a slice on the right side. Carefully remove the backing of the tape and sprinkle silk microfine glitter over the words. I used Forest green. Polish your glitter with your finger and brush of any access.
Step 7: Adhere the reindeer head and the words on the front using glue and your card is done.
Good luck with your last Christmas cards this year!
I wish you a beautiful Christmas time and all the best for 2021.
