Blogmas 2018 – Traditional Christmas Cards

As in my previous card making post as part of Blogmas, I will make and share four different cards to fit the theme. Today I’m sharing some more traditional Christmas cards.

These are produced using a variety of methods; just to show how versatile it can be, making your own cards.

Traditional Christmas Cards

This second card post is probably my most common theme; traditional colours, very red and green, though I tried to have some fun with the cards I made!

If you would like to know how I make a specific card in more detail, get in touch, and I can explain further on theĀ Facebook page. These papers are SO gorgeous, I can’t remember the name of the stack, Vintage Christmas? Possibly! I know I got them last year, so they aren’t new. If you know feel free to tell me.

Ribbon Bauble card

Traditional Christmas cards - Red bauble card

I punched red circles, layered onto this pretty tree print paper, and trimmed with some green ribbon, before finishing with some liquid pearls in silver. I did finish with some sparkly red sentiments after deciding this was a little too plain.

Snowflake Charm Card

Again these were really simple to make but so pretty! I kept these cards plain, just patterned paper with some coordinating ribbon and a small snowflake charm. After Christmas the charms can be cut; and turned into a “wish bracelet” which is so much fun!

The red papers are from Dovecrafts Festive wonders paper stack which I got this year.

Rosette Card

I am a big fan of rosette cards, though they are hard to post, so I don’t make them very often! I chose to finish with a little robin sketch and some ribbon.

Traditional Paper block Christmas card

I absolutely adore this paper! So I let it speak for itself on this card, I finished with these little wooden tree shapes, which I used a couple of years ago too! I just love them!

Punched Snowflake Christmas Wreath Card

This card looks WAY more complicated than it is; but it might be my favourite of this “series”. Using several different papers from the Christmas stack I got last year; I punched several snowflakes, and alternated them into a circular wreath shape, gluing them into place, and finishing with some organza ribbon. I added one snowflake and a small gold sentiment to finish.

Over the month I will be sharing different styles of card, generally using punches, paper layering and stamping, though there will be different elements used here and there.
