Hello everyone! I hope you're well.
I'm sharing a really fun and better still, easy, Christmas card with you today. It features several small elements so it's great for using up your scraps too!
First, I created a top fold UK A6 card blank from White Super Smooth 300gsm card.
I cut down a piece of Rosso Fuoco Nettuno Linen Effect 280gsm card to approx 2mm smaller around each edge than the card front.
I cut a strip of black card to fit the width of the card panel, approx 2.5cm long. This will be Santa's belt.
I cut a piece of silver Mirror card down to approx 3cm long and approx 2.8cm wide. Using a craft knife, I removed the centre of the silver card, leaving a 'frame' of approx 1.5mm around each edge. This will be Santa's belt buckle.
I adhered the buckle to the belt using wet adhesive, then stuck this my red card panel.
Once the glue had dried, I trimmed the overhang of the belt.
I stuck my card panel to my card front using wet adhesive.
Now all that was left was to do the buttons.
Using a round die, I cut 2 buttons using scrap white card. I also used this die to cut twice from white fun foam. I adhered the card buttons to the foam buttons using wet adhesive. Using fun foam gives the buttons dimension.
Finally, I stuck the buttons to Santa's outfit using wet adhesive.
The card is complete! These are great cards for children and craft fairs!
Until next time, take care.
Love, Dani xx
