Super quick Christmas Card



Hi everyone, today I’m here to show you this super quick and easy Christmas card! When you create 40/50 Christmas cards each year not all can be elaborate, so some fun and quick idea’s are very welcome I think!


Step 1:

For my background paper I choose some olive green card stock. I didn’t die cut it to size but first stamped a Stampin’Up background stamp called “Buffalo Check” onto the panel using VersaMark ink (which is sticky) and then I heat embossed using Zing! “Silver Glitter Finish” embossing powder. This creates a really gorgeous sparkly background. Now I can die cut a rectangle shape from it and know that my die will be precisely in the middle (this panel will be two sizes smaller than my card base).


Step 2:

For my sentiment I picked one of the sentiments from the Stampin’Up “Flurry of Wishes” stamp set and stamped this with VersaMark onto white card stock. Afterwards I heat embossed using Ranger “Silver” embossing powder. I die cut a circle shape around the sentiment.


Step 3:

For both the rectangle panel and the circle shape I die cut a slightly larger element using dark purple card stock. I adhered both rectangle and both circle shapes together using liquid glue. Around the combined rectangle panels I wrapped a piece of matching purple ribbon and adhered on the back using regular tape. I also created a separate bow from the same ribbon, which I will adhere later on.

These combined panels with the ribbon on top I adhered to a white linen textured card base using one millimetre thick foam tape. And to finish my card I now only have to adhere the combined circle die cuts and the separate bow: for the circles I used one millimetre thick foam tape and for the bow I used Glossy Accents.

And that is it for today’s project! I wish you a creative day!
