I made a little batch of Christmas cards this morning, and I like how they turned out.
First I sketched a simple Christmas tree shape on a shipping tag and cut it out.
I saved the tree shape to use as a template. I covered other tags in a collage of bits of paper, postage stamps, paint swatches and washi tape, using a penciled rough outline of the tree shape as a guide.
Next I used the original tree-shaped tag and traced it on the back of each of these tags and cut them out.
I made some tiny tags to add to my Christmas trees. I have a rubber stamp with a tag shape but you could also draw it.
These are stamped onto a dictionary page that I’d glued to a scrap of card stock for sturdiness.
After stamping the tag shape, I stamped a heart on each one, then cut out all the little tags and punched a little hole in each one.
Using foam dots, I adhered the tiny tags to the larger, tree-shaped tags and added a bit of baker’s twine. I mounted the trees onto folded red cards with more foam dots.
Here’s a few of the finished card fronts.
I still need to stamp a greeting inside each card, but I’m pleased with my progress.
I worked on a few other creative endeavors this weekend but both of those project are gifts, so I’m not ready to share them here. Yet.
Thanks for visiting.
