Quick and Easy Christmas Cards

I struggle when it comes to Christmas crafting. I always leave it till it’s too late to make my Christmas cards even though everybody expects one. So I need quick crafty cards that I can make in batches, which is super easy to do using the beautiful detailed 12×12 card from Canvas Corp Brands. Because of all the detail on the card, there is very little you have to do to create a great little Christmas card.

Products used:
Canvas Corp – Farmhouse Christmas on Ivory
Canvas Corp – Red and Ivory Ticking
Canvas Corp- Black and Ivory French Script
Tattered Angel Color Wash Paint – Lemonade
Kraft Card, White card
Sliver washi tape
Black Ink, Stamp, Pencils

Cut the main patterned card into 12 pieces to make 12 cards. Cut all the other mats and layers to fit these pieces.

Stamp out 12 sentiments on white card and trim them to size.

Mat the sentiments onto card with foam tape.

Mat all the layers onto the card blank and add a strip of Washi tape for extra interest.

Colour some script card with color wash.

Draw and cut out 12 stars, attach them to the corner of the cards with foam tape.

Your cards are now finished and ready for posting to your family and friends!

Have great Christmas!!!
