A Small Pack Of Christmas Cards
For the cards I’m going to show you today I used different images from from a Creative World of Crafts Popper Pad, that was in my box of things to make Christmas cards in the garage so not this year’s purchase, to make two packs of 5 cards. There is little difference between the content of both packs but I’ll show you photos of all 10.
I started by matting and layering each image onto a piece of black cardstock.
While cutting out the black mats I also cut out one piece around an 1″ bigger.
I then took a pack of pre-scored, scalloped, white, 6″ square base cards and used the larger piece as a template to draw around with a fine liner black pen onto the front of each base card, leaving a space to put on a peeloff aling the bottom. I used black peeloff tyat say “Nadolig Llawen” greetings (Welsh for Happy Christmas) on the cards.
I then used used double sided tape to attach my matted images to the card fronts.
An insert with “Nadolig Llawen a Blwyddyn Newydd Dda” (Welsh equivelent for Happy Christmas and a Good New Year) was stuck to the inside of each card.
This is what I finished up with.
The cards in pack 1
The cards in the 2nd pack (most were made using the same image toppers as there are several of each image in the popper pad – which means I have enough to make more little packs of cards like these.).
So, that’s it for today – another couple of small packs of cards that are small and flat enough to go through tge UK post using a standard letter stamp, which is important to some who buy a few cards from me..
I’ll have some more Christmas card posts to come over the next few weeks, so please do pop back to have a look.
