Here’s One I Made… 2014 Christmas Cards

I have spent the last weekend working on the BMB Christmas Cards for 2014, it’s been a couple of years since I made a batch, last year because of the change of job and the year before because of work pressures.

But this year as part of my refound compulsion to craft, I have started the cards:

Christmas03

The key element is the Christmas Tree inspired by a pin on Pinterest. It is based on fours Squares (3, 2.5, 2, 1.5 inches in size) which is firstly folded into a waterbomb base. Once you have the base fold the two corners on the top layer down along the centre fold line to create the point.

Christmas02To assemble, I drew the tree base onto a Kraft tag, using super sticky I fixed the triangles one on top of the other from the largest upwards. To give it a bit of depth, I put a single 3D foam under the peak to raise it up a little.

The star is from the original 2×2 Quickutz Nativity Die set and is embossed with a quickutz embossing folder as I needed something with small details.

Christmas01I mounted the tag on glimmer mist card and added a block with the same colouring on the first third of an A6 card. I then folded the remaining card in half and attached the star to the front third.

As I am getting back into the crafting zone, I am starting to visit my old challenge blogs on a more regular basis and this card is perfect for the Simon Says… We’re Seeing Stars challenge this week as even my stars are seeing stars!

The card is finished by a length of ribbon and adhesive pearls.
