Guest Post: Christmas Cards

Hi All,

Today we have a guest post from Katie Brett of Chantilly Rose Crafts. She has created a fantastic tutorial to show us how to make some gorgeous, quick and easy cards. These would be perfect for those last minute cards needed!

What you will need:

  • Card base
  • Stamps
  • Patterned acetate (or stamp and create a pattern on some plain acetate)
  • Adhesive
  • Washi tape
  • Pearls

Step 1
Cut a piece of snowy acetate the same size as your Kraft card blank, to act as a slip cover.

Step 2

 

Choose your stamps (I used a set from Sheena Douglass), and stamp your design directly onto your card blank with black Memento ink.  I used old scraps of card to mask off the back side of my card blank.

Step 3

Your card should now look something like this.Christmas card 3

Step 4

Cut a ‘banner’ shape from white card, and stamp a sentiment.  I used a sentiment from the Mulberry Wood range, from Crafter’s Companion.

Step 5
To attach your acetate slip cover, add a line of tape using a tape runner to the back of the card, and place the card blank inside the acetate cover.

Step 6
To cover the visible tape, I used some washi tape in a music design on the back of my card.

Step 7
Fix your sentiment on to the acetate using foam pads, and add some self adhesive pearls to the top left hand corner of the card (or, embellish as you wish).

Your card is now complete!  Quick, easy, and very wintery!
