Red and White Christmas Cards

on December 1, 2013

For some reason, I have never been a fan of green. I don’t remember the last time I owned any green coloured clothes. On the other hand, red is my favourite colour. Red, white, and black make up about 85% of my wardrobe. (Haha, when I previewed this post, I noticed my ‘red’ profile pic on the right of the screen 🙂 ). I wanted to make a few christmas cards without any green in them. Here are two of those:

My first card is a bit plain at the moment, and I might enhance it in the coming few days. I’ve had this old angel pattern with me for a while now. I used an A4 sized silver hand made paper, folded it into four, traced and cut the angel onto it such that when I opened up the paper, the angels were left holding hands. I then stuck this onto red hand made card stock.

This is what the back of the card looks like:

This is the front of the card:

I love this second card of mine because I find it very cute! I had recently purchased an A5 boofle pack and this cute little reindeer was on the front of the package. I cut it out and decided to make it the theme of a card. White pearl card stock was the base of my card. I used a pattern paper from the boofle stack. I used a die cut frame to highlight the reindeer, and quilling strips to form the border of the card. The writing (Merry Christmas xxx) was in grey and was a bit dull, so I used a black permanent marker over it to brighten it up a bit. Tada!

I kept the inside of the card simple, and just outlined the border with the same red quilling strips.Doofle Christmas Open
