Here's another Christmas card that I would like to share with you. I've already mentioned step cards, but I have also noticed that hinge cards are popular at the moment. Again I'd never made one before, so I thought I should give it a go! Actually this uses a card that I had messed up....I covered my mistake using the papers, so my card didn't go to waste!
The card is really easy to make, you just have to fold the front in half and then use a brad to hold it in place, it's then up to you how you decorate it.
For my card I used papers from the Artylicious Season's Greetings CD Rom edged in gold Krylon pen. I cut out a square of heavy duty acetate and ran this through my Wizard in the snowflake Cuttlebug Embossing Folder. I wrapped a gold ribbon around the acetate and then fixed the acetate to the card using little gold brads. I stamped the Winter tree (Elusive Images, Winter tree from the Winter Tree and Torn Holly Script Themeplate) in Cranberry Adirondack Ink onto patterned paper. This was then cut out edged with Krylon and matted onto red pearlised card before attaching to the acetate. As a finishing touch, a little bit of gold glitter was added to the branches.
Watch this space for more cards......
