As in my previous card making posts as part of Blogmas, I will make and share four different cards to fit the theme. Today I’m sharing some handmade Christmas sparkle cards in black, white and gold.
All of my handmade cards are produced using a variety of methods; just to show how versatile it can be, making your own. If you want to know how I make a specific card in more detail; get in touch, and I can explain further on the Facebook page.
With a running theme of Christmas sparkle; the papers I used making these cards all come from the Dovecraft Festive Wonders paper pad. Who doesn’t love a bit of glitz and sparkle for the festive season?
Christmas Sparkle Cards
These cards are great for using up off cuts of paper, which is great if you (like me,) are using smaller cards than your sheets of paper. I embellished with some sparkly gold ribbon, gold glitter sentiments and layered glitter stars, all of which I bought from Hobbycraft, and black bows from my stash.
These are probably the style of cards I make the most in some form or another. I just loved this paper and didn’t want to do much to it! I finished with some gold glitter ribbon, making a bow using a glitter brad from my stash, and a simple stamped sentiment.
This was just a simple card I made for the fun of it; lots of stickers and some stamped stars, I wasn’t seriously trying to create anything useful but ended up really liking the cards! So they got a sentiment sticker and I ended up making a handful of them!

This card was one I really wasn’t sure about when I made it; I wondered if the paper would be too plain, though I loved the design. It ended up being one of my favourite makes of all of my Christmas cards! I love adding ribbon or tape at an angle, it’s fairly common when I make cards just because I think it’s interesting(!) I finished with a different stamp and well this is he result! What do you think?
This is one of those cards that more work ended up going into it than necessary; I cut 4 squares and layered them with the stamped image (Finished by hand to add some gold, and a border) on a punched circle. I wasn’t happy with it; so added the ribbon, covering half the work! In the end though I think it’s quite stylish and nice! This stamp is one of my favourites though!
