Here’s One I’m Making – Christmas Cards 2017 (Part 2)

I started my Christmas Card review last week with sharing the base for this year’s Christmas Card and having decided to use both the gold and silver snowflakes, I wanted to do something different. I am not really a red/green/gold Christmas colour scheme person so the challenge was to find something to go with the gold.

I was drawing a blank until I saw the A3 cardpacks from Crafters Companion, the Nordic Christmas back was Christmassy, warm colours but without any traditional red and green.

It was also a mute colour scheme, and to ensure I didn’t overpower it with the centre pieces, I went for a satin gold circle with a bright gold centre. I decided to carry this on with the silver too. I am glad satin metallics are “in” at the moment as I like the combination of the bright and the soft.

The silver colour scheme was easier, I have a LOT of “modern” christmas colours and I decided to go for a pearlised cardstock.

As the “Merry Christmas” die was so complicated, I used Ken Oliver’s Stick-It. I have never used it before, it’s a bit like a xyron machine without the machine and that you can cut down to size. I used two sheets for 25 cards. It is very sticky… very very sticky but its amazing!

At this stage I also stuck the snowflakes on the back of the cards, because they spin you need some detail on both sides. I have opted for a greeting on one side and just the snowflake on the other.
