Craft #1- Christmas Cards

27 Nov

With Christmas just around the corner, card season is well and truly on its way.

I’ve been busy (when I can be, depending on health) making cards for those people I love. In the past, I have spent up to 8 hours simply designing the card. I am a perfectionist, which makes craft quite difficult.


‘Mr Snowman’ was made using an image from Google that was manipulated, cut using a Silhouette machine, and uses basic card stock, ribbon, glitter glue and sentiment stamp.


‘Dizzy Reindeer’ was made with a manipulated Google image, Silhouette machine, basic and patterned card stock, ribbon, glitter glue and sentiment stamp.


‘Baubles’ was made with very basic image in 3 different sizes. You could make this without a Silhouette machine, assuming you are into punches and own circular ones. Patterned and plain card stock was used, a sentiment stamp, glitter glue behind the stars, stamp ink border for sentiment, and has raised heights via the square foam stickers (mind blank on their actual name. Google suggested Salmon).
The most difficult part of this card was lining up the bauble paper underneath, as there is a gap in height they needed to be perfectly centered.

That’s all for now folks! See you again soon with more crafty projects.
