Fortunately this Christmas card is very simple and any card maker will be able to make it in no time at all.
This Christmas card idea is made from an A4 piece of card folded in half. I used a bone tool and score board to score a straight line down the middle of the A4 card.
I used white card but you can use whatever you have in your card making supplies.
Use the bone tool to make the fold neat and tidy.
I then used a piece of blue 12×12″ blue card stock which I cut slightly smaller than the front of the white card stock.
Before attaching the blue card to the white card stock carefully ink around the edge using a blue ink pad. This softens the edges of the card and hides any snags or white bits that may appear after the card has been cut.
I placed double sided tape on the back of the blue card.
Next attach the blue card to the front of the white card, applying even pressure to make sure it has been stuck down properly.
I then had a look through my card making supplies for some appropriate Christmas themed rubber stamps. I selected four rubber stamps and arranged them on the front of the card to ensure the stamped image would fit nicely.
I used black StazOn ink to ink the rubber stamps. It is always best to dab the ink pad over the stamp rather than pressing the stamp into the ink as this applies an even coverage of ink.
I then stamped the images onto white card stock. Because the Stazon ink is fast drying it was dry within seconds. This is not very good if you wanted to emboss the image but in this case I didn’t so it worked fine.
You can use whatever you have handy in your card supplies to colour the stamped images or alternatively just leave them black and white if you wish. I used my sons colouring pencils just to give a very slight amount of colour.
I then mounted each stamped image onto dark blue bazzill cardstock and cut the card out leaving a small edge.
Repeat the process with silver card.
Next place some double sided tape on the back of the framed images.
Attach the framed rubber stamped images to the front of the card leaving a gap down the centre.
I originally wanted to place some ribbon down the centre of the card however I found some Christmas confetti in my card supplies, the kind you find scattered on party tables, which I thought would work much better with this Christmas card idea.
Use small 3D foam to attach the silver snowflakes to the front of your Christmas card.
Using 3d foam really makes it stand out and gives the card depth.
A really simple handmade Christmas card idea which can be be made very quickly by any card maker.
