My First Christmas Card!

Hello everyone,

I have my very first Christmas card for 2018 to share on Winnie & Walter Blog and here today. I know it is very early. Last year I put off making  Christmas Cards until last minute and it did not go well. I did not make any other than DT assignments. No Christmas cards were sent out last year. So I decided to start nice and early to make a good collection of cards ready to post when time is ready.

For this card, I used Happy Christmas and Merry & Bright with Evelin T Designs stamp sets. I used the  poinsettia stamp set from Happy Christmas stamp set and stamped around the kraft panel using masking technique. This makes a good border. I trimmed the panel to 4’x5.25’ in size. Then I coloured the poinsettia using copic markers. I used R24, R27, R29, R30, R59 for the flowers and YG21 and YG23 for the leaves.

I then spattered some gold Colour Shine spray and once dry, I sponged the edges with white pigment ink to soften the panel. Using MISTI I stamped the sentiment from Merry & Bright stamp set using black ink. I added some Nuvo white blizzard crystal drop to add some texture to the card.

I adhered this panel to a Kraft card base. I also sponged the card front with white pigment ink on the edges. This card is simple, rich of colours and easy to make. You can stamp a number of panels one day, another day colour them, then stamp… Have a assembly line to make a set of 10 such cards. If you find colouring the poinsettia tedious, then use larger image so you have less images to colour. Hope I have kick started your Christmas card making or at least got you thinking about it 🙂 The supplies I used are listed below.

    I know a lot of people get weird about doing or saying anything that has to do with Christmas or winter in the summer months! I’m one of those! However, it’s kinda fun! Changes things up a bit. Your card is really lovely. Now you have one less card to worry about!
