Once the jolly season is upon us we all want the option to make the Easy Christmas Card ... especially if we have lots to make for family and friends.
Maybe you make them for a charity that you support or perhaps you have a small card making business and you have orders to fill to a deadline
And maybe you don't have any of the fancy equipment that is on the market, and so everything needs to be cut by hand , doubling your work load.
But if you do have lots to make then this could be a really good idea for you to try, and use up lots of those scraps in the process.
Over the past few video tutorials I have covered making many styles of Christmas cards, that are pretty and all are simple to make.
Some have used the ever popular Spellbinders dies ... Heirloom Ornament 2010
But I have also covered cards that don't use these or any other brand of dies ... the Christmas Bauble Card was one.
And this is another variation ... and not a Spellbinders in sight !!
This pretty design is a good way to use up all your little odds and ends of glitter, pearls and ribbon.
I have chosen my colours from those in the small piece of ribbon that I wanted to use that is holding the bauble in place.
Maybe you want to keep it all one colour, and each colour glitter that you use will give you a different look.
You could match them to the colour scheme you have chosen for your Christmas theme, or your recipients theme.
You could try adding it to some Mirror card if you preferred... or any of the specialised card that is around. There is always a lot of sparkle and foiling at this time of year.
You could also try altering the way you lay the thin strips down to create yet another look.
I have added small self adhesive pearls to all the cross sections on my ornament.
Have fun with your own creations and see what you can come up with ... but this is certainly a very pretty way to send those Christmas greetings to the special people that are in your life.
A quick and easy card that you can make lots of in an evening. There is not a lot of thinking needed but some lovely results at the end.
