“The Magic of Christmas” Card [Video Tutorial]
Christmas is one of the most magical times of the year, not only for children but adults too. Trimcraft knows how to put the magic of Christmas into cardmaking, so they’ve created a collage-style greetings card using papers from the Dovecraft Magic of Christmas Paper Pad. This beautiful card has a traditional feel with a rustic red, brown, and green colour scheme. This only takes about 30 minutes to make and is great for beginners!
Materials You’ll Need:
- Dovecraft Magic of Christmas 6″ x 6″ papers (collage design and red snowflake pattern)
- Dovecraft Magic of Christmas gems
- 6″ x 6″ Kraft card blank
- Dovecraft Magic of Christmas accordion pinwheels
- Dovecraft Magic of Christmas stamp
- Ink pad (red)
- Acrylic stamp block or stamping platform
- Adhesives (foam tape and double-sided tape)
- White card
Take the collage patterned paper from the Dovecraft Magic of Christmas 6″ x 6″ paper pad and trim to 14.5 cm square. Wrap twine around the square three times vertically and then the same horizontally. Secure in place on the back of the paper with tape.
To make the sentiment, cut a piece of the red snowflake patterned paper to 8cm by 3cm. Cut an inverted ‘V’ from one side. Cut a piece of white card to 7.5cm by 2.5cm and repeat the inverted ‘V’ on one side. Stamp a sentiment using the Magic of Christmas Merry Christmas stamp in red ink. Layer the white card on top of the red snowflake paper using foam tape.
Fix the sentiment to the card close to the point where the twine meets.
Finish with an accordion pinwheel topper, three small green gems on the sentiment, and three medium-sized red gems in the top left corner of the card.
