Vintage style Christmas card
Makig a christmas present is not something very complicating and expensive. I'm pretty sure that everybody should know how to make a small greetings card. And that is what we are going to do on our third handicraft advent.
Let's prepare all the necessities for the card:
- double-sided colored cardboard A4 size - 2 sheets
- a piece of scrapbooking paper
- Christmas vintage postcard
- gold-cloth ribbon
- faux pearl semi-beads;
- cliche with a greeting sign and related image
- double-sided tape;
- figurine scissors or shaped punch for edges
- Snow-flake shaped punch
How to make a vintage style Christmas card
The standard double colored cardbord comes in A4 size, and we should fold it to size A5. Fold and pinch the middle of a sheet on both sides and using a smooth side of scissors' blade make Biga ( Beigen ) line. Fold the card
On the front page:
Cut a rectangle with sides 13.8x15 cm and glue it to card
I have a picture from a decoupage set, but you can use any vintage card with sides 7x9 cm. If you have an embossing set, it wil be a good idea to emboss the edges. Using a beige colored cardboard make a mount 2 cm bigger than our card. Using a figurine scissors or a punch work over the edges of mount and glue the card on it.
With the same scissors work the edge of a smaller piece of cardbord that we are going to decorate with a Greetings cliches. Also you can decorate it with a srapbook paper that matches the color of a main card but has some texture.
Measure the gold-cloth ribbon to the exact size of our card, in my case it is 14.8 cm and attach it to the card with a double sided gule tape.
Use a cliche to decorate the inner space of a card, add some paper snowflakes. On the front part add some pearl half-beads and a greeting sign
This card will show the recipient that you do care about him and made something really special
