Examples of handmade Christmas cards to inspire you

Hello there!

Did you know that Britons send approximately 16 Christmas cards each a year? That's a lot of cards especially if you are planning to make them yourself.

With only a few weeks left till Christmas, you might think you don't have enough time to make Christmas cards yourself and you might be tempted to buy them from a shop. Quick and easy.
But do you realize how much more meaningful would a handmade card be to someone you love?

Let me show you a few Christmas cards I made recently. I hope they inspire you to sit down one evening and create something beautiful for your loved one(s).


I designed my first card within an hour. I had an idea in mind and managed to turn it into reality straight away. This doesn't happen very often I must say... :) so I felt quite pleased with myself. This is what I came up with:







To make this card I used quite a few Stampin’ Up! Products, especially the amazing designer series paper from the 2019 Autumn/Winter catalogue. What I managed to do as well, I turned the patterned paper into the shimmering paper! Love the effect! here is my short video tutorial:


If you would like to know the exact supplies I used to make this card, and the other 2 projects -  I have listed them at the bottom of this blog.

Another card in the box I made recently has a beautiful stamp I heat-embossed on patterned paper. I used wide white organza ribbon, small silver embellishment, and red glittering poinsettia flowers.










In the last few days, I also managed to make a beautiful gift box. I used the amazing window box thinlits die from Stampin' Up! and covered it with Festive farmhouse Designer series paper again. Love this patterned paper, as you can see I used it in all my 3 projects.






I hope you like my 3d Christmas projects.
Thanks for stopping by.
