If you want a stunning holiday design, this is the quickest Christmas card to make.
I’ve got all the supplies, measurements and steps for you to make this in today’s post.
This is a perfect example of how pre-decorated foil papers instantly create your card.
All you have to do it dress it up even more with a special greeting on a pretty label and some over the top ribbon!
Want to see our design?
With a gorgeous piece of shiny foil paper like this, it’s always a toss up. Cover it up with some beautiful dies or let it stand alone?
I’ve chosen to let it shine! A simple greeting and a beautiful ribbon embellishment are all it needs to make it an even classier design.
(But if you wonder about this too, this post might help you decide…should you or should you not layer on handmade cards?)
Card Making is So Quick with Beautiful Specialty Paper
This package of paper is a little different than some designer papers. You don’t have to choose which side has to get glued down. Because each piece is a single-sided design.
With each piece you can make 6 cards in today’s design. So that’s 36 cards for the holidays made in no time!
And you’ll wow your family and friends with how beautiful they are!
You’ll have a darker Lost Lagoon (in today’s card which I think pairs very well with Pretty Peacock ink), a lighter Lost Lagoon and a bright white and silver.
All you need is a coordinating colour of ink and a lovely greeting. Mine is from the Magical Meadow stamps which brings your card to life in mere minutes!
Working with foiled patterned paper with images built right in will instantly help you make AMAZING cards!
Quickest Christmas Card to Make
Cuttin’ It Up!
- Basic White Thick – 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″, scored at 4 1/4″
- Snowflake Magic Specialty DSP – 4″ x 5 1/4″
- Basic White – scrap
- Silver and White 1/2″ Sheer Ribbon – about 12″
Let’s Make It!
- Fold the Basic White cardbase and adhere the snowflake specialty paper on the front.
- Use a piece of Tear & Tape or SEAL+ and lay down about a 1 1/2″ amount in the bottom right of the design, about an 2″ from the bottom.
- Take your length of ribbon and start at one end and place it directly onto the glue and weave it so it has a bit of a sideways “S” shape.
- Stamp greeting onto the scrap of Basic White with Pretty Peacock ink. Stamp the foliage in Lost Lagoon, then stamp off onto a piece of scrap paper than add it to the bottom right. Cut out the words with the Something Fancy Dies and add dimensionals to the back. Remove the dimensional backings and TIP! add some liquid glue (this will allow it to stick through the ribbon if necessary). Glue over the top of the ribbon so the ribbon extends above and below it.
- Add some Basic Rhinestones in the centre of the snowflakes to embellish.
