One Christmas Card every week!

I have heard of other people doing this and I have decided that I am going to join in! I am going to be making a Christmas card every week so that come December that Will nearly all be done and I can get them in the post at the beginning of December. Thats the plan anyway!

So this week I made 3 to make up for the first 2 weeks when I didn't make one at all.

All cards are made using these measurements

  • Base is A4 cut in half and scored in half, this makes a C6 card 5 7/8th x 4 1/8th
  • I cut a mat just 1/4" smaller on each side - 5 5/8th x 3 7/8th
  • I cut a second mat in some cards 1/4" small on each side again -  5 3/8th x 3 5/8th

Card #1

I used the Swirly Snowflakes dies on this card,

  • I cut a mat in Velum 5 3/8th x 3 5/8th
  • I then used the the snowflake border and cut it twice leaving a small gap in the middle of the mat
  • I used a sponge dauber and Dapper Denim Ink to give it a hint of colour
  • I used Dapper denim as the card base 5 7/8th x 4 1/8th
  • I used Whisper White as the mat  5 5/8th x 3 7/8th
  • I applied adhesive down the middle of the velum snowflake layer and stuck it to the Whisper White Mat
  • I cut a length of Dapper Denim ribbon to go across the centre and adhered to the back
  • I then adhered the Whisper White Mat to the card base
  • I added Dapper Denim enamel dots to the centre of each snow flake 
  • I the stamped the sentiment .Merry Wishes' from the Oh What Fun stamp set in Dapper Denim on Whisper White 
  • I punched this out with the Classic Label Punch
  • I then adhered this onto the ribbon toward the right hand side.

Card #2

I got chance to use the Labels of Love on this card, I had not used it on any of my Christmas cards this year but did make some labels with it. 
  • I used an Emerald Envy card base 5 7/8th x 4 1/8th
  • Whisper White mat  5 5/8th x 3 7/8th
  • Emerald Envy Taffeta Ribbon (available on clearance rack) stuck around the mat like a present
  • Merry Christmas Label stamped in Emerald Envy onto Whisper White
  • Punch out with the Every Day Label Punch
  • Hole punched in it and ribbon added and tied at the crossover point 

Card #3

For this card I used The Oh What Fun stamp set and dies from Swirly Snowflackes, Seasonal Layers and the Stitched Framelits. 

  • I used an Emerald Envy card base 5 7/8th x 4 1/8th
  • Whisper White mat  5 5/8th x 3 7/8th
  • I used the holly stamp to make a Christmas tree shape
  • Cut some snowflakes for the top of the tree
  • cut some swirls for the corners 
  • stamped the sentiment and cut it out with an oval stitched framlit
  • Used some more snowflakes to add some interest
  • Finished off with Emerald Envy enamel stars

I will be doing a Christmas card every week from now on.  I hope you get some ideas and get ahead like me :-) 

See you soon
