Christmas Cards With A Nativity Theme
For the cards I’m going to show you today I picked out images which had a bit of the Nativity scene on them from a Hunkydory little book. There were five images chosen, and six of each.
I started by matting and layering each image with a metalic mat of either gold, silver, or red mirror card. I wasn’t wanting every of the same image looking exactly the same so deliberately chose at least two different coloured mats for the same image.
I then took a pack of pre-scored, scalloped, white base cards and used 2mm deep, double sided, foam tape, to attach my matted images to the card fronts.
I used peeloff “Nadolig Llawen” greetings (Welsh for Happy Christmas) and randomly used gold and silver ones, placed at different locations on the card fronts, to make each card with the same image slightly different.
These cards I batched into 6 packs of 5 cards each with envelopes and the following label put inside before sealing the cello bags.
I’m not going to post photos of all 30 cards, but here are the contents of one pack.
And here are a small number of the rest, one of each image taken at random from the different packs, so you can see the difference in greeting location and matting colour.
So, that’s it for today – quick and simple cards.
I’ll have some more Christmas card posts to come over the next few weeks, so please do pop back to have a look.
