Ideas to Make Your Own Christmas Cards
Bloggers Like Us Christmas Edition
Christmas Tree Cutout Card
Firstly I gathered the papers and cut out a Christmas tree in one of the pieces and made it so it fills most of the blank card. TOP TIP: Save the cut out tree for the inside of your card. I then cut some bright pieces of card of up in to random lines. These were then glued on to the card itself so that they overlapped. I also added some of the shiny washi tape that came with the kit to give it a bit of sparkle. These will form the inside of the tree.
Next glue the cutout tree on top of the inner decoration and on to the card. I love the effect this gives. You could then add washi tape around the edge like I have or leave it blank.
Finally I decorated the card with some embellishments from the kit, including Mrs Brimbles stickers and die cuts. Et voila, a quick and creative card.
Festive Envelope Decorating
I also wanted to decorate the envelope, so I used some more of the stickers and die cuts and a bit from the creative zine to make it more festive. I hope my recipient likes it.
Handmade and Stamped Watercolour Christmas Card
Last up I have made this watercolour card using a variety of Daniel Smith watercolours and some gold spray alcohol ink that I made myself. I then used a winter tree scene stencil and layered over some blue distress ink. Finally I added a few of the sticker embellishments to finish it and a bit of writing that I added, a nice and simple card.
Festive Cards Using Stamps
At the Mama Makes Christmas Craft workshop I had fun making a variety of cards, tags and wrapping paper using stamps. You can see these in the top image. I absolutely love this cute one made with some of Lotti's gorgeous paper and stamps. I then added some pearls that you can also buy from Mama Makes. My favourite one and I also stamped the muslin gift bag too.
Finally I used some cute bits from the Christmas themed box that I received from Crafty Bonbons using their beautiful paper and Lotti's stamp. I then added embellishments from the Crafty Bonbons kit to finish off the look.

You can also see the stamped wrapping paper I made at the workshop using parcel wrap and a Mama Makes stamp.
