Blue and White Christmas cards

on November 26, 2013

One of my aunt’s favourite colour is blue, so I wanted to make a blue and white christmas card and gift tag for her.

Blue n White Xmas

I’ve had this blue and silver snowflake handmade paper for years. I just found it recently and knew instantly that this would go into one of this year’s christmas cards. The white card stock (card base and mittens) are from itsybitsy.in. The white lace, silver glitter, and double sided tape are from a local craft store. I spent hours trying on various sentiments on different locations on the card, but for some reason, I kept liking this bare look better. Finally I decided to just keep it this way. The mittens pattern is a free digital stamp from birdscards.com

I’ve kept the inside of the card simple as well. I used a stencil to cut out stars from the same blue handmade paper, and stuck that to the four corners of the card.

Xmas Tree

The gift tag is actually a mini-card (2.5”x3”). The cardstock is from the DCWV Mediterranean stack. 3mm white quilling strips are used to form the the tree. I added a blue glitter strip, pearls and a 3D glitter star to complete the card. All the products used in this tag are from itsybitsy.in.

I will be trying a sunburst card for the first time tomorrow, so lets see how that goes!
