Christmas card set

Hello and happy Monday!! Today I´m sharing another set of Christmas cards. This card set is done using Canvas Corp papers.

I love the kraft paper on the background with the Christmas sentiments on it!! And I combined a very bright green, white and red toned paper (also by Canvas Corp) with the kraft paper and they work together really well! I´ve just added a few buttons and pieces of ribbon to the cards for detail, but didn´t want to overdo them. I find the papers themselves look fabulous enough!!

One more full week and then we are almost there! How are your Christmas preparations going along? I still have so much to prepare. And it´s been a very strange year all in all, pre and during the pandemic and I´m not sad to see 2020 go, to be honest. I just hope next year will be slightly better. I´m not wishing much this year, just that the situation would get better eventually. So scared this will just go on and on..

But for today, I´m just thankful that we have been healthy so far and that I can get my mind off the awful things thru my crafting. Wishing you all a good day! Stay healthy!!

Misted Christmas cards – Canvas Corp Brands

Happy Monday everyone! How about another set of Christmas cards? These again are fairly easy to create. You just need a piece of this patterned paper on ivory, a few of your favorite Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist tones, some burlap to go with the mists and finally some chipboard, a piece of twine, some Christmas sentiment stamps and a paper glue. And if you want, a few half pearls to finalize the „ornaments“.

Here is a finished set of cards:

Sanna LippertI first cut the patterned paper into a right size, then I misted the pieces with blue, green and brown Glimmer Mist.

Then I cut the burlap (black, blue & green) to match the size of the chipboard ornaments (these are by the way by Wycinanka). I then first glued the piece of burlap down onto the card, then adhered the chipboard piece.

Sanna LippertNaturally you could also leave the paper as it is. Just adhere it down to a card base as it is and then add some chipboard elements over it. These can be plain or painted like on my last card. The paper is really lovely also as it is!

Hope you have enjoyed reading thru this post,
wishing you all a happy Holiday Season!!

A set of Christmas cards – Canvas Corp Brands

Hello and Happy Friday everyone!!! Did you create handmade Christmas cards this year? I did. I sent a few on their way around the globe very early, as I participated on a Christmas Card Swap for the 4th year in a row. It has become such a fun tradition and I would not want to miss it for anything – if you are interested in joining, then look this group up over at Flickr!!

And then to my first set of cards. I´ve been creating with the lovely Christmas collections (Farmhouse Christmas & Jolly Christmas) from Canvas Corp Brands this year. Let´s start with a set of Farmhouse Christmas cards:

Sanna LippertSanna LippertI love the black and kraft  snowflake paper! It is so very pretty! Here is how I created these cards:

Sanna LippertSanna LippertThis was my starting point. Some brown Glimmer Glam, burlap, patterned paper and a few chipboard pieces. I glued the patterned paper onto white card bases first.

Sanna LippertNext I added droplets of White Metallic High Impact paint onto the patterned paper.

Sanna LippertSanna LippertSanna LippertNext I fussy cut some tags from the Farmhouse tags on Ivory paper and misted them with Verdigris, Turquoise Blue and Vanilla Breeze Glimmer Mist tones.

Sanna LippertWhile the paint and the misted pieces were drying, I painted the chipboard pieces with brown Glimmer Glam tone (Bon Bon).

Sanna LippertAnd while the Glimmer Glam was still wet, I added a thin layer of Rock Candy Distress Glitter over the painted pieces and let that dry. When the paint dries, the Glitter will stick to the surface – no glue needed. Then all I needed to do was to layer the burlap and the misted tags onto the patterned paper. I also added some twine, seam binding, pearls and some silver netting onto the cards. So easy and very fast to create!!

Here is one more extra card – created in a similar way, I have just used various brown tones for coloring the door – the paints are from the Tattered Angels paints range 🙂
