#Christmas cards origami style 2014

This year I studied a lot of burlap and earth tones so when I saw a tutorial on Christmas cards with a vintage look I thought I’d give it a try. I used Kraft paper, distressed inks, glitter and patterned paper. The best part was the origami paper folding.

Christmas Cards 2013

I fell in love with the “chalk art” or “chalkboard” look and wanted to use that theme for Christmas cards. After finding “The Chalkboard Stack” at Walmart by DCWV, I thought this paper would be perfect. I tried many markers, and crayons trying to get a bright, crisp, chalk look. *Though this paper is nice and thick it is not suitable for Versamark heat embossing because it gives off a strong chemical odor when heated. I settled on die cut stencils I made and white sharpie paint markers. (fine & medium tip).

I also tried this poinsettia on transparency method and made a set of cards for a friend and my beautician.

Christmas Cards I Made This Year 2011

This was a very happy experiment. I decided to make hand made Christmas cards this year. My goal was to make each one distinctly different. It was like magic was in my hands. Enjoy.
