Make your christmas cards on repeat

Make your christmas cards on repeat

Hi, it's Ruby here. I hope you've had a great week.


Joy Card 1


Today, I'm sharing a card that you can make easily in time for Christmas. All you need is a couple of stencils, some alphabet letters and you're good to go.


I'll take you through the process for one card, and then share how easy it is to adapt the design in different ways. 


Joy Card 2


Here's how I made the card:


  1. Using a smooth piece of white A4 piece of cardstock, I coloured the Concord & 9th's Boughs and Holly Stencil Set, with Altenew mini ink cubes in Delectable Delights, Red Cosmos and Green Fields. Tip: By doing it on A4, I can now make many different cards.

  2. I then die cut the stencilled panel using a stitched rectangle die

  3. Next, I die cut a smaller rectangular panel in white cardstock, using the same die set, 

  4. I then wrapped some red and white Baker's Twine around the stencilled panel, leaving the ends untied. 

  5. Next, I attached the smaller white panel onto the stenclled panel and tied the twine to create a bow.

  6. I then die cut the letters for 'joy' using Altenew's Bold Alphabet Die Set. All letters were cut three times in red cardstock. This allowed me to stick them together in three layers to create a stacked 'chipboard' letter. I often do this technique as it makes the letters look really solid and they don't then bend when posting. NB. Because I wanted the letters to be completely red from the sides, I didn't use white cardstock for the second and third layers as it would show through.

  7. I attached the letters to the centre panel and added a copule of coloured gems to finish.


Now, this is one card. Remember you can flip it to landscape for a different look. For this second card, I added some Ranger's Glossy Accents for a twist on the previous card.

Here's the four-step card making recipe I've shared with you:

  1. Choose a layered stencil set, colour all elements

  2. Choose an alphabet set, stack the die cuts to create a chipboard letter

  3. Die cut two rectangular panels

  4. Adhere card together.

The options are absolutely endless for this design.


What different colour combinations could you make?


What other non-Christmas stencils could you use to create a completely different look?


What about making a set of different coloured cards as a gift for people. What other wording could you use, such as 'hello', 'thanks', 'yay'?


So what will you make? I'm off back to my 'studio' to make up some card packs using lots of different stencils. See you next week!
