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:
This 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.
Next I added droplets of White Metallic High Impact paint onto the patterned paper.
While the paint and the misted pieces were drying, I painted the chipboard pieces with brown Glimmer Glam tone (Bon Bon).
And 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 🙂
