Hi everyone!!! Welcome to my blog ... so pleased you came for a visit.
I'm back to share with you the last of the Christmas Cards I made for this year. These are the ones I made for close family and some special friends, although I must say, all of my friends are special. They must be to put up with me!! hehe!!
As with the other cards I've shown you, these are all basically the same card just made with different papers. They are Easel Cards and all of the base papers are from Meg's Garden's 'Musical Christmas' and 'Christmas Time' Mini Packs and the trees were made with a number of different Kaisercraft Christmas papers.
Construction of the tree is simple. You just cut a triangle to whatever size you want from chipboard or some other type of stiff board, glue a small frill of border punched paper along the bottom and then fill the shape with leaf diecuts from different papers. It is a little time consuming but I thoroughly enjoyed making these, they are a lot of fun. You could add some glitter here and there or maybe a few small gems to represent lights or even use some white puff paint or embossing powder to represent snow but I left these plain. I felt the different colours of the paper was enough.
The star at the top of the tree is a plastic snowflake which I painted with gold acrylic paint. The label is from Kaisercraft to which I added the greeting sticker and the diecut is the 'Virtuoso Music' Die from Memory Box.
The inside was decorated with more of the papers from Meg's Garden and I just added a diecut oval shape with the sentiment and also a Kaisercraft 'Holly Border' flourish. The flourish was coloured with Versa Color in Scarlet and Green and I also added a few red gems to represent berries.
Here is how the card looks standing up ...
... and here are a few pics of some others made with different papers.
On this one you can see the little bit of border punching I did on the paper. It doesn't show up quite as well on the others.
Once again, this is just a sampling of the cards made.
Not sure if I'll be back here before Christmas so I would like to wish all of you a wonderful and joyous Christmas. Hope you all have a fabulous day and many Blessings to each and every one of you.
Thank you so much for visiting.
Take care and God Bless.
