Card making is something I absolutely love doing and have done for a while now so what better time to get creative with making cards than at Christmas.
Please note these photos aren’t all from the same card, I made a few of them!
I started off by folding a piece of green card in half and drew half a Christmas tree on the folded side.
I then unfolded the card (you only want to cut into one half of it) and using a craft knife I cut along the outline of what I’d just drawn *important* make sure you have something underneath where you’re cutting – a proper cutting board would be good but I improvised and used an old TV guide on top of my lap tray for this.
Once I’d done this I refolded the card and cut around the right hand edge of the tree, leaving about a cm gap to make it more tree shaped.
Next you need to glue it to a piece of folded card that you’re using to make the card – I used white card for this, now here’s the tricky bit, which part you need to glue! I thought the easiest way to explain this would be to annotate the photo. Also, put it where you want it on the card before you glue it, that also might help visualise which parts need the glue!
Now you need to stick it onto the card – some areas might need a bit of extra glue if you miss a bit (I did more than once).
Now you can add other decorations to the card…
I used a snowflake craft punch from Hobbycraft (which I also used last year to create these gift tags – Blogmas | Making Christmas Gift Tags) to create the snowflakes with blue card which I glued onto the card.
I also glued ribbon onto the card and added a few adhesive gems as well as the gold lettering which was also bought from Hobbycraft along with the various card toppers in the flatlay in the first image above, I’m not sure where the ribbon is from, we’ve had that for a while.
What do you guys think? Is this something you’d like to try making?
