Handmade Christmas Cards!
Not sure if I have shared this with you, but Christmas cards are my favorite type of cards to make! I get super excited as it is like a countdown that Christmas is soon approaching, and since this is my favorite holiday I get all happy about it.
Some people might think that July is too soon. However, when you are making lots of Christmas cards, July it’s perfect to start making them. Don’t you agree? I much rather do a few each month than a lot in just one month. Plus this allows me to make even nicer cards as I am not rushing.
So here you have it! this is the card I made to showcase Christmas in July!
I used the Most Wonderful Time Product Medley for this card, mainly because this has a selection of products already selected for you to use and all of them coordinate, so this makes it super easy to make cards!!
As usual, I used a sketch, as you know this makes the whole process even easier.
For this card I use a sketch I have previously showcased on my blog. However, this time I decided to change the shape of the elements. Instead of using a circle I used a rectangle, which embellished with the gifts from the designer series paper (DSP) a.k.a. patterned paper.
So whenever you are looking at sketches, think of ways you could modify them, it will help you get even more creative! I promise you!
The Color Combination
For this card I used the color combination based on the designer series paper from the Most Wonderful Time product medley. This is always the easiest way to come up with color combinations. If you ever struggle with color combinations, give it a try, you will see how easy this is.
Cardstock: Real Red: Card base 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″, scraps to die cut, Old Olive strip 3/4″ x 3″, Whisper White 5 1/4″ x 4″ and scraps to die cut, Gold Foil 3/4″ x 5 1/4″
Designer Series Paper (DSP): 3 7/8″ x 5 1/8″, scraps to cut out the gifts from the DSP
- Fold the card base in half using the bone folder
- Glue the DSP onto the Whisper White cardstock and this piece onto the card front
- Cut the Gold Foil Strip ends using the Tailored Tag Punch to have the banner shape on the ends
- Glue the Gold Foil Banner onto the card front
- Die cut the labels using the Stitched So Sweetly dies in Real Red and Whisper White
- Glue the labels onto the card front
- Stamp the sentiment using Early Espresso ink pad onto the Old Olive strip and cut the ends using the Tailored Tag punch
- Glue the sentiment onto the card front
- Cut with scissors the gifts from the DSP
- Glue the different gifts onto the card base using dimensionals
