Hi there,

 

Zsoka here with you today, sharing a set of cards you can make in no time if you need a last minute present for friends or family,

but don't want it to look like you didn't spend much time on it! :D

 

As you see these cards are not Christmas cards - well, I was thinking no one needs Christmas cards at Christmas anymore...

So I decided to go with some everyday cards that anyone can use any time of year. But because this is meant to be a Christmas 

present, I created a festive box for it.

 

 

 

 

 

Alright, so here's what you'll need:

 

 

Of course I forgot to add a couple of things...Another coral ink pad, stamps of your choice. You also need standard supplies like 

glue, scissors, trimmer - I also used both a manual and an electric die cutting machine. You can however find 

alternatives to these if you don't have them. 

 

I made 10 cards, 5 Hello cards and 5 Thank you cards. The card base is 4.25x5.5" (top folding), I used white card stock for this. Then I cut 5-5 

panels from color card stock, coral and navy, in the same size. I then cut 10x 4x5.25" cards from white card stock. 

I chose an image from the wonderful Pinkfresh Studio Semi Circle Patterns stamp set and did the below steps.

 

 

I'm obsessed with circles and wreaths so this is what I wanted to do here too. I used a circle die as a template to draw 

a pencil circle in the middle of my card stock (you can use anything to help you, I just had this on my desk already).

 

 

I started off by stamping with blue. Of course I shouldn't have, not with Stazon...it is not called Stazon for nothing haha! 

Start with the lightest color and stamp as shown below. 

 

 

Next, take your second color and stamp in beween the blue images as shown below.

 

 

Fill the wreath with the third color.

 

 

Now you can glue this panel on your color cardstock, then on the card base.

I had these two dies that I thought would be great for every day cards (you can totally use chipboards, wood veneer,

stickers, acrylic pieces etc, if you don't have a diecutting machine).

 

I cut each word 3 times (per card), then glued them together to have a nice dimension.

 

 

 

Then I embossed the white Hello with white embossing powder, the coral Thanks with clear embossing powder.

 

 

 

Then all there is left to do is put the cards together. I suggest you always do each step for all the cards, it saves a ton 

of time! 

Now, clean and simple is not so my style generally, but I like how elegant these turned out. I'm sure my friend will love them!

 

 

 

When I took the photos I didn't have the right sized envelopes, but I will put 10 envelopes in the box too, navy and white 

because I haven't found coral yet.

 

About the box. I created a cut file in Silhouette Studio for this, but you could use any box cut file or even just a box that 

you cover with patterned paper.

The poinsettia cut file is from the Silhouette design store, I added pop dots between the layers to get a more dimensional 

flower. The tassel is also a cut file from the Silhouette store but you really don't need this in my opinion. You can cut a strip

of paper, as wide as tall you want your tassel, and then use scissors to create a fringe on one of the long sides. Then put glue

on the top unfringed part, add some thread, roll it up. You can add washi tape or ribbon to decorate the top.

 

I hope you like this idea of a handmade Christmas gift and give it a try!

 

Have a peaceful holiday season!

X

Dear Zsoka, I really like your cards. They are simple but as you wrote elegant. Your friend will love them! I tried making cards before, but I dont seem to be able to make cards I like, so I think I will try something like this. Thanks for sharing!
