Wild Whisper Christmas

Making a Christmas Card from non-Christmas paper.

You don’t always need traditional Christmas paper and embellishments to make

a Christmas card.

One of the perks of being on the Xyron Design Team is receiving product from partnering

companies like Wild Whisper.

I recently received Wild Whisper’s “forever & always” collection…

a soft mix of paper including backgrounds of banners and labels.

I considered making an everyday type project, but, since I’m currently in full blown

“Christmas Crazy”, a Christmas card was in order.

I cut out a few banners and labels from the background paper.

I added letter and number stickers to create my holiday embellishments.

My Xyron Creative Station* made quick work of putting the layers together.

I added a  small wood snowflake, sheer white ribbon and adhesive pearl rhinestones

to finish off the card.  I like the non-traditional soft peach and blue.   (It’s not my usual red.)

Reindeer Star Card

reindeer-star-card-sues-creative-workshop

Impress your friends and family this Holiday…

with a gatefold card that looks a lot harder than it really is.

This may not be a beginner card for some, but, I promise it really is not hard.

A few layers and a few simple steps and you’ll be done in no time.

The supply list may seem long…

but you can easily adapt the card with supplies you have on hand.

 

This is what I Used to make the Reindeer Star Card:                                           (*affiliate link)

Directions:

  1. Cut a piece of cream cardstock 7 1/2″ x 5″.  Score and fold on the 2 1/2″ mark to create a 5″ x 5″ card base with flap.
  2. Cut a piece of red patterned paper 2 1/4″ x 4 3/4″ and adhere to the front of the flap.
  3. Cut a 2 1/4″ x 2 1/4″ piece of light green patterned paper and adhere onto the bottom of the red patterned paper.  Repeat for the inside flap.
  4. Cut a piece of dark green patterned paper 4 3/4″ x 4 3/4″.  Adhere to the inside of the card.
  5. Cut a piece of red plaid paper 2 1/4″ x 4 3/4″ and adhere onto the bottom of the dark green patterned paper.
  6. Add a strip of thin washi tape to the seam of the patterned papers.
  7. Apply White and Gold Foil washi tape to a piece of white cardstock.reindeer-star-card-creating-a-washi-tape-background-sues-creative-workshop
