First of all, I can't believe that I am doing a Christmas post in September! But some of you like to get started early on cards and there are new Christmas papers at my2angels I want to show you. It is the new Mint Twist range from Kaisercraft, perfect for those of us who prefer a bit of bright and cheery to muted and old fashioned.
All I had was 1/2 sheet of this Mint Twist Jingle paper and I managed to get 3 cards out of that plus a few embellies.
If you are in a hurry, you can cut out the tags from the paper and use them as they are, but I like to always add a bit to it.
For the first card I stamped leaves into the tag to fill it out a little more and did some hand stitching with the Sew Easy tool and the Flourish head, plus 3 washi tape flags.
The Christmas bauble got a glass cabochon to make it 3D (use Dimensional Magic to glue it on) and 2 white bows.
The next card has a giant mulberry flower for a bit of background texture. I could have sprayed it with glimmer mist, but decided to leave it all white so the cute tag will stand out.
The sweet little pink present charming chain adds just enough wow factor. They come in different colours, too. I popped a little pink bow on top.
These bow packs are great for having a bunch of mini bows on hand whenever I need one.
The last card has 3 layered tags from the same Jingle paper
and I finished it with some cotton lace, red velvet ric rac, baker's twine and a present charm with 2 small leaves. This card was really quick to make cause I was running out of time before school pick up. I reckon you could make 10 of those in an hour.
I hope you got some Christmas inspiration. It's always a good idea to start cards early so you don't run out of time.
