Make Beautiful Handmade Christmas Cards
You can make beautiful handmade Christmas cards for your friends and family. All you need is some imagination and card making products. While you do need some imagination, there is a word that we use in the crafting world to make our life easier. That word is CASE.
CASE is an acronym for “copy and share everything” , which tends to be a mantra for a lot of crafters. When I first get a new stamp set, sometimes I don’t have a clue what to do with it. For me, it’s getting to know your stamp. Where do I go? To the catalogue. Sometimes, I will copy the card exactly and sometimes I will use some of the same elements but mix up the colours and thinlits. No matter what, it’s your card.
Stamps: Holly Berry Happiness.
Ink: Crumb Cake, Cherry Cobbler, Old Olive,
Paper: Very Vanilla, Crumb Cake, Old Olive, Cherry Cobbler, Champagne Glimmer, This Christmas Specialty DSP.
Accessories: Big Shot, Lots of Labels, Pretty Pines Thinlits Dies, 5/8” Burlap Ribbon, Cherry Cobbler Baker’s Twine, Christmas Trinkets Embellishments, Holly Berry Builder Punch.
This card is similar to the one in the catalogue, however, there are some elements that I chose not to use.
For example, the holly is stamped on Crumb Cake card stock with Old Olive ink. One of the pinecones is die cut using Crumb Cake cardstock and the other pine cone is die cut from Very Vanilla and sponged with Crumb Cake ink to bring out the texture of the pine cone.
So, if you don’t know where to start to make beautiful handmade Christmas cards, the catalogue will help you out.
