Christmas Card Ideas

I have tried to put together a few simple ideas for Christmas cards using some of the tools I had already in my craft cupboard and some of the supplies from my store. 

Any of these ideas and styles can be adapted to suit the supplies and tools you already have in your cupboard. Sometimes it just means you only need to add one or two extra supplies to give your project the final touch.

Check out what you have in your craft cupboard!

Now for a few ideas.

Centre Step Card - Christmas Tree Double layered

 

 What a surprise I had when after writing up the instructions for the Centre Step Card following a demo on You Tube – I went to my craft supplies and I found that I had the exact size card in stock to create the card without cutting it down. All I needed to do was score, slice and fold. Too easy!

If you would like the instructions for the Centre Step card, leave a comment here or email me and I will forward them to you.

 

Another Centre Step Card

I will record the supplies I used at the bottom of this BLOG post.

and another

 

the inside

 

So quick and simple to make.

  

Another quick and simple one - what embossing folders do you have in your cupboard?

 

Some Peel Offs, some foil and an embossing folder!

 

Die cutters, coloured card stock, peel offs and embossing folder.

 

I painted the Peel Off sentiments with Dufex Brush Pens and now I have Green!

 

Patterned Acetate was used here. I think I will stock it. I like the fresh look! Now I have to decide - do I add a design in behind on the insert sheet or leave it white?

 

 I added a few Transparent Peel Off Baubles as well – in amongst the stars!
 

Moved away from the traditional Christmas colours and used silver blue ink to colour the embossed design. I used the Brush Pens again to change the Peel Off colours.

 

I used the same embossing folder to emboss the foil and then cut them out and popped them up on the background. The Peel Off sentiments and bows were coloured with the Brush Pens.

 

 I saw this idea below on You Tube and thought it didn’t look toooo difficult. Give it a try!

 

Half Swing Card

 

Half Swing Card - Inside

Mmmm kind of messed up the sentiment when I didn’t stick it down straight first time and pulled it off – didn’t get it right the second time either but…….you get the idea!
