Welcome to Day 7 of our handmade Christmas Card a Day idea with instructions. New card designs have been posted each day this week! Please see our previous post for background details on this post. To view our previous card designs, please click here.
This card features a handmade paper hat with a coffee-dyed pompom topper.
– This card has a coffee-dyed pompom like Wednesday’s card. For instructions on this part, please refer to Wednesday’s card. You’ll want to do this step first since there is some drying time involved.
– Cut out your greeting card base from a piece of festive patterned paper. We used a scrap from a double sided 12″x12″ paper (sorry, we don’t have the name). The cut size (open) is 6″ x 9″.
– Score the card in half and fold.
– The hat pattern was made by sketching a hat shape (mirror image to how you want it to appear) onto the back of a piece of coordinating paper (we used the reverse of the original patterned paper). Don’t worry about making it perfect; part of the enjoyment in getting something handmade is that it is less than perfect and therefore unique.
– Outline the hat with a black marker. Also at this time, you can outline the whole card with a black marker. Ink edges of card and hat using Ranger’s Distress Ink by Tim Holtz in the “Tea Dye” colour.
– Cut out a small piece of sparkly ribbon to attach to the bottom of your hat.
