Welcome to Day 6 of our handmade Christmas Card a Day idea with instructions. Follow along each day this week for a new card design! Please see our previous post for background details on this post. (For previous card designs, please click here.)
This is another simple card which would be quick and easy to make in multiples for mailing out to your friends and family.
Cut out your greeting card base from a piece of festive patterned paper. We used Basic Grey’s 12″x12″ double-sided patterned paper, “Tidings/Wintermint” from their Fruitcake collection. The cut size (open) is 6″ x 9″.
- Score the card in half and fold.
- Use Word to print out a greeting. We printed on a cream coloured cardstock. Cut to size and ink edges using Ranger’s Distress Ink by Tim Holtz in the “Tea Dye” colour.
- Cut out a green piece or another coordinating colour to back the greeting. (Sorry, not sure which paper this is that we used as it was a scrap). Use corner rounder to round edges. Glue greeting to green backing and glue all this to the top of the card.
- Cut out a piece of ribbon to fit underneath the greeting.
- We used a gemstone brad to attach a mini flower to the centre of the ribbon and then that was attached below the greeting.
We invite you to come back tomorrow for Saturday’s card.
