More Christmas cards


Aaaaaand another set of Christmas cards. To make these I used mainly scraps: pieces of kraft paper, some leftover patterned paper in green and red and fragments of a doily. I added splotches of white and gold watercolour and a stitch to add some interest to the background. I’m not very good in even stitching with my tiny handheld sewing machine but I discovered that marking paper lightly with a pencil beforehand helps a lot. To finish I used sequins and stars.

Quick post with a quick card today.

To make this card all you need is a piece of nice christmassy patterned paper, a stamp with sentiment and some embellishments: twine, ribbon and wooden stars. Patterned paper is here the main focus point so there is no need for tons of decorations.  Enjoy!

Mass produced Christmas cards


It’s this time of year again! Today I want to show you a design I have chosen for my mass produced Christmas cards this year. It may seem that it requires a lot of work but if you do everything in batches it goes really fast and I made a good bunch of them in  no time.

Handmade mass produced christmas cards My workflow looked like this:

1. Heath emboss bunch of images on vellum.

2. Cut out round windows in the cards.

3. Cut out round window in the patterned paper.

4. Stamp the sentiments sentiments and fold the ends of paper strips (you can skip this step).

5. Using adhesive, make a sandwich: card -> vellum -> patterned paper.

6. Adhere the sentiment on top.

7. Add sequins to embellish.

8. All done!
