Tis the Season Cards with Technique!
Hello BoBunny Friends,
It's Elena here with you today to share some of the tips while making Christmas Cards.
You know it's never too late or too early to start making the cards for Christmas. However it's very difficult for me to start in the summer, but during the Fall - I am ready quite easily to start.
I made a set of cards.
I like doing fussy cutting as well as doing die cutting.
So I decided to make a card with a rotating ornament.
I started with cutting the circle images from the paper, then I adhered them together pulling the string between them before
So I've got 2 images on both sides.
I made the circle using the die and fixed the string with the rotating circle inside the card using the tape.
Later I covered the tape and the string with the papers, but I made the circle die cut before
This technique is quite simple , however it makes a kind of surprise effect, and I guess this is a good idea to surprise someone who got used to receive handmade cards.
You can also use the die cut circles for the other part of your card, you can place a quote there or add the other image
The circle inside the card can be of the same size as the window or larger.
My third card is a bit larger, however I used the die cut images from the paper too.
I've put the the die cut circle from the left part of the card to the right and topped it with the sentiment circle.
I also added some drops of Pearlescents to make it look more festive.
While taking the photos I've realized that I planned to add glitter paste on the chipboard bell I used.
So I've added and it looks lovely finished!
The picture doesn't show all the glitter but it really looks wonderful.
I hope that I have inspired you to create something new for upcoming Christmas.
