Christmas card making in July is always a great idea. Winter is upon us so the weather is perfect for it. It’s exactly what we did for our July Catch-Up. We used the stamp set called Christmas Season on the day and each attendee also took it home.
One of the projects was the card above. We used the pinecones in different shades of green. It’s a one-layer card that’s easy to replicate and make multiples of.
Here’s how to make the card:
- Cut a C6 or standard card base in half to make 2 pcs of notecards
- Stamp your pinecone in Garden Green and then stamp the detail in Old Olive. If you’re making the pink version, stamp the pinecone in Blushing Bride and then the detail in Crumb Cake
- Stamp the sprigs and holly leaves in different shades of green. I used Pear Pizzazz, Garden Green and Old Olive.
- Stamp the berries on the sprigs. I used Real Red and Blushing Bride for the pink version
- Punch a hole on the card base and attach a piece of string or ribbon
We also used Designer Series Paper (DSP) to make this gorgeous Christmas card shaped as an ornament. When folded, it’s squashed into a little square which can be posted out as a card. It’s a fabulous pop-up card idea if you’re thinking of giving out paper ornaments this year.
I hope that you enjoyed this inspiration to make Christmas cards this early in the year. If you missed out on our monthly catch-up in July, why not join us next month? Let me know so we can organise it. There’s always something fun to do at catch-ups and the company is lovely too.
