Christmas Cards – 049 to 054

Thank you for coming over to have a look at my blog

Christmas Cards

A big thank you to all who have come to have a look at the Christmas Cards I’ve made so far this year.  I do appreciate your visits and comments, though circumstances have made it difficult for me to get enough time to visit every blog post made by crafting friends I do try and visit the craft groups I’m in on Facebook to keep up with your creations – and I am so impressed and wish I had half the tallent and patience that some of you have.

This time I have more Nativity cards to show you.  They are a little bigger than the last batch, A5 instead of 6″ square, and this lot have different dimensional elements on them.

What I Did

The card blanks I’ve used this time were pre-cut and scored A5 white base cards.

The toppers are again from Debbi Moore’s Nativity collection.  For some I just used papers and single topper layers raised using foam, for others I used decoupage – the whole collection includes matchit dies so that items can be cut out to layer without having to use a scissors, although some scissor work for less intricate shapes was involved in the creation of these cards.

After cutting, I built up the different cards, some layers using flat tape, some using foam tape, and some using glue gel.

I then added “Nadolig Llawen” peeloffs.

I finished off by putting a simple insert with the same greeting printed in black onto 120gsm paper on the inside.

I stamped my details onto the back to finish.

What I Used
Finished Cards

As I said in a previous Christmas card post – I’m numbering the Christmas cards I’m blogging this year so that I’ll know exactly how many I’ve made in total by Christmas.

Christmas Cards – 043 to 048

Thank you for coming over to have a look at my blog

Christmas Cards

Hi all! Time to show you some more of the Christmas cards I’ve made so far this year.

This time I have Nativity cards to show you.  I do like having a good lot of Christmas Cards showing scenes from the Nativity – after all, that is what Christmas is all about.

What I Did

The cards in this batch are all simple and similar.  They are flat and 6″ square so will go through the post using a standard letter stamp to save postage.

I’ve used flat toppers cut from a Debby Moore kit for each one.  Matted the images onto cardstock and stuck to the front of pre cut and scored base cards.

I then added “Nadolig Llawen” peeloffs.

I finished off by putting a simple insert with the same greeting printed in black onto 120gsm paper on the inside.

I stamped my details onto the back to finish.

This week, to have a bit of a change from the Hunkydory cards and the more simple ones with decoupage I’ve been doing, I’ve started makeing up a batch of Nativity Christmas cards using Debbi Moore Nativity kit and dies. I do like Christmas cards that show the Nativity – after all, that is the real reason for celabrating Christmas in the first place – and having dies to cut out the Nativity characters and animals allows for some dimensional elements when there’s no way I could cut them out by hand.  Keep an eye out for them appearing on my blog during the next couple of weeks..

Christmas Cards – 019 to 024

Thank you for coming over to have a look at my blog

Christmas Cards

Hi all! Time to show you some more of the Christmas cards I’ve made so far this year.

What I Did

This batch of cards is similar to ones I showed you previously – here – only this time they are created using scalloped edge A5 base cards, not 6″ square cards.

After folding the cards I drew a border around about 1cm in from each edge in a fine Sharpie pen. I printed out the greeting “Nadolig Llawen a Blwyddyn Newydd Dda” onto perleascent paper – some in red and some in green.

These were then trimmed and stuck onto corresponding cardstock and the mat trimmed to around 0.5cm or 1cm before sticking onto the base card.

I’m still working my way through the decoupage Christmas themed images I’d stuck together previously.  These were stuck to the front of the base card using wet glue.

I finished off by putting a simple insert with the same greeting printed in black onto 120gsm paper on the inside.

What I Used

As I said in a previous Christmas card post – I’m numbering the Christmas cards I’m blogging this year so that I’ll know exactly how many I’ve made in total by Christmas.

What is really odd about some of these photos is how the bright red writing on the pearlescent paper doesn’t show up well at all in some photos at some angles, even though it is practically as dark as the red mat behind the greeting panel.  If you look at the angled view next you can see it shows up much better at a different angle.  Strange!

Christmas Cards – 013 to 018

Thank you for coming over to have a look at my blog

Christmas Cards

Hi all!  Time to show you some more of the Christmas cards I’ve made so far this year.

What I Did

This batch of cards is different to the previous batches, although I do have some more of the Hunkydory ones to show you again, but I thought I’d go for something different this time.

Each are based on a 6″x6″ square card with a border drawn around about 1cm in from each edge in a fine Sharpie pen.  I printed out the greeting “Nadolig Llawen a Blwyddyn Newydd Dda” onto perleascent paper – some in red and some in green.

These were then trimmed and stuck onto corresponding cardstock and the mat trimmed to around 0.5cm or 1cm before sticking onto the base card.

I had bought a pack of die cut decoupage which I spent an afternoon popping out and layering up using Pinflair Glue Gel.  These were left for a while – OK, quite a long time as I wasn’t feeling up to much at the time – then I stuck the decoupage onto the cards.

I finished off by putting a simple insert with the same greeting printed in black onto 120gsm paper on the inside.

I stamped my details onto the back to finish.

Althoug not large, because of the decoupage, these cards will not go through the post using a standard letter stamp, so either hand deliver, in with a parcel, or a large letter stamp for these.

What I Used
Finished Cards

As I said in a previous Christmas card post – I’m numbering the Christmas cards I’m blogging this year so that I’ll know exactly how many I’ve made in total by Christmas.

Christmas Cards

Hi and welcome to my blog (or welcome back if you’ve visited before). Thank you so much for poping over for a look, and a big thank you to those regular visitors who have left such kind comments on my various posts of late. I realy do appreciate you taking the time to do so.

I did start showing you my Christmas card makes a good while ago, and had a couple of dozen already made ready to photograph and show you, but things like an emergency operation got in the way.  So now I’m going to, very slowly, get back into blogging and crafting, and sooner or later I hope to catch up with things – at least I hope to do so before Christmas – no rush is there?!

Like the first ones I made, the cards in this batch have been quick and easy ones made using components from the latest Hunkydory Christmas Collection, and, as I was so late doing my cards last year and didn’t use up all my stash, I have quite a few bits added from last year’s Hunkydory Christmas Collection as well. As the cards became all jumbled up when I was putting them into a storage box I’m not quite sure which year’s collection the cards I’ve got to show you in the first few posts have been made from.

What I Did

Have a look at the first batch I showed – Here! – if you want to know what I did.

Christmas Cards – 001 to 006

Thank you for coming over to have a look at my blog

Christmas Cards

Hi and welcome to my blog (or welcome back if you’ve visited before).  Thank you so much for poping over for a look, and a big thank you to those regular visitors who have left such kind comments on my various posts of late.  I realy do appreciate you taking the time to do so.

Well … I’ve officially started my Christmas Card Making!

Just a few at a time in small batches, but hopefully it will mean I’ll have ones ready to sell at the chapel, etc., in a couple of months time (assuming the COVID-19 virus is got under control and lockdown eases so that we can return to worship in the autumn).  I suppose I’ll have to try selling some online or over the phone to friends and family if the lockdown continues.

The first ones I’ve made have been quick and easy ones made using components from the latest Hunkydory Christmas Collection, and, as I was so late doing my cards last year and didn’t use up all my stash, I have quite a few bits added from last year’s Hunkydory Christmas Collection as well.  As the cards became all jumbled up when I was putting them into a storage box I’m not quite sure which year’s collection the cards I’ve got to show you in the first few posts have been made from.

What I Did

For this first batch of cards I simply went through the collection picking out matching background cardstock and inserts that went with the various die-cut toppers that were in the kit.

Each sheet of background cardstock was scored and folded in half.

I wanted to keep these first ones very simple, with very little dimension, so I only used glue, fingerlift tape, or 1mm deep foam tape to do the attaching of toppers and greetings banners where these were used.  This way I hope that all these cards will go through the Royal Mail on a Standard Letter stamp to save on postage.  I’ve got a “letter ruler” to check each card in it’s envelope so that I can be sure before I either post myself, or to tell anybody who buys the cards.  Peel-offs were used on some of the cards instead of banners.

I set up a greeting “Nadolig Llawen A Blwyddyn Newydd Dda” (The Welsh equivelent of Merry Christmas and a Happy New year, though not a direct translation) in MS Publisher on my laptop.  This greeting was printed onto the matching inserts before they were trimmed a bit and stuck inside each card.

I then use my stamping platform to stamp my details on the back of each card.

Note – Although the We R Memory Keepers “The Works” bit of equipment has the ability to cut, score and stamp, when I’m batch makeing I don’t like swapping the plate up and down for scoreing and cutting, or adding the stamping platform every time I want to stamp the details, so I do use separate bits of equipment for each job.

14th Batch Of Christmas Cards For 2019

14th Batch Of Christmas Cards For 2019 – Welsh Cards

Hi and welcome to my blog (or welcome back if you’ve visited before). Thank you for coming over to have a look at my blog

This is the second half of the batch of cards I made as square ones on a chrisp, white, base card – although, as I said in my previous post – here – the photos are not showing up as crisp a white as they are in reality. I’ve made them very Clean And Simple, with very little additions to the topper, although I have put the toppers on with foam tape for a little bit of dimension.

What I Used
  • Items from Hunkydory Christmas Collection from this year
  • 6″ square cards with envelopes
  • 2mm and 3mm Shaker Foam Tape
  • Roller Glue Tape
  • Pinflair Bookbinding Glue
  • Black and Gold “Nadolig Llawen” Peeloffs
  • Glitter “Nadolig Llawen”
  • A4 White Paper – for printing out inserts
  • Paper Trimmer
What I did

You can have a look at what I did in my last post if you missed seeing that a couple of days ago.  You can find it – here.

Batch Of Cards

The insert in each card was a simple one like this.

.

That’s just about it for Christmas makes for this year.  But never fear, I have much more crafting on the go so it won’t be long before I’m back with more things to show you.

13th Batch Of Christmas Cards For 2019

Thank you for coming over to have a look at my blog

13th Batch Of Christmas Cards For 2019 – Welsh Cards

Hi and welcome to my blog (or welcome back if you’ve visited before).

Today’s batch of cards (and the next one) are square ones made on a chrisp, white, base card – although the colour in the photos is not showing up as crisp a white as they are in reality.  I’ve made them very Clean And Simple, with very little additions to the topper, although I have put the toppers on with foam tape for a little bit of dimension.

What I Used
  • Items from Hunkydory Christmas Collection from this year
  • 6″ square cards with envelopes
  • 2mm and 3mm Shaker Foam Tape
  • Roller Glue Tape
  • Pinflair Bookbinding Glue
  • Black and Gold “Nadolig Llawen” Peeloffs
  • Glitter “Nadolig Llawen”
  • A4 White Paper – for printing out inserts
  • Paper Trimmer
What I did

The cards were already scored, so it was simply a case of folding them before starting.  I chose toppers from the collection of a size that left a lot of white space on the card front, keeping the framing element if there was one with the topper.

Each topper was stuck down using 2 or 3 mm deep foam tape while the framing element was stuck directly to the card front using either the roller glue tape pen or bookbinding glue.

I added a greeting to most to finish off the front.

For the inserts I printed off a greeting and my mother and my names (I know – cheating a bit to save having to write inside each one as I’m running out of Christmas steam by now).

The inserts were trimmed to size, folded, and stuck in using the roller glue.

Batch Of Cards

The insert in each card was a simple one like this.

The central topper on each card is raised up slightly on foam tape.

I’m coming to the end of my Christmas makes for this year, but still have some items to blog about.  Then it will be on to the new year and more crafting.
