If you want to make quick, beautiful and easy Christmas cards, grab just a few products: the Snowflake Splendor Designers Series Paper (page 37 in the Mini Catalog), the Balmy Blue Glimmer Paper (page 37 in the Mini Catalog), and the Snowflake Wishes Bundle (same page). See? ONE PAGE SHOPPING! Easy!
The card I show you today is the simplest Christmas card you could possibly make. Seriously.
And isn't it elegant?
Die cut two of the snowflakes from the Balmy Blue Glimmer Paper, cut a 4" x 5 1/4" piece of one of the DSP papers, pick a pretty sentiment from the Snowflake Wishes stamp set, stamp it in Balmy Blue onto a diecut label. Add to Balmy Blue cardstock and then to a Whisper White card base. And you have a gorgeous card!
Read on for a tutorial to recreate a card like this for you and all on your holiday card list!

Die Cutting/Embossing Machine
Fold a 4 1/4" x 11" piece of Whisper White cardstock in half, creasing it well with a bone folder.
Add to this card base a 4" x 5 1/4" piece of Balmy Blue cardstock.
To this, add a 3 3/4" x 5" piece of the Snowflake Splendor Designer Series Paper.
On a 1 1/2" x 3 1/2" piece of Whisper White cardstock, stamp the sentiment from the Snowflake Wishes stamp set in Balmy Blue ink. Use an appropriately sized die to cut out the sentiment.
From Balmy Blue Glimmer Paper, cut two of the snowflakes from the So Many Snowflakes dies. Adhere the smaller of the snowflakes to the upper right corner of the sentiment label.
Adhere the label to the DSP, raised a bit from the center point, with Stampin' Dimensionals.
Add a bit of adhesive to the points of the larger snowflake, and slide it under the lower left corner of the sentiment label, pressing it firmly in place.

Your Christmas card is beautiful and inspiring! Though I do a lot of crafts - quilting mostly - but also some crochet and loom knitting - I've never done much with paper craft though I have always been intrigued by it. I've always been a little intimidated by all the supplies and how to use them but your instructions are clear and concise! Maybe I'll make some Christmas cards this year! Thanks for the tutorial!

Now this is my kind of card-- quick, simple, blue and covered in snowflakes! I don't like seeing actual snow falling outside my windows but I do love everything blue and snowflake themed for decorating. Pinned.ReplyDelete
