Christmas cards for favorite people

Hi lovely crafty friends, making Christmas cards is always something special. No matter if you like sparkle, glitter or not, they are different than the cards we make throughout the year.

Wether you are bulk card maker or not, I bet you have some people who get an extra super pretty card. Of course I have some of those people too. I am going to show you what I do to make the cards in a way that the receivers know I made them especially for them.

(All supplies are linked to different stores at the end of this post in the thumbnails. The different stores are also linked behind the product name. Among them are affiliate links that may be used at no cost to you.)

In this video I’m going to show you how I make the cards for my favorite people. I use lots of different techniques and share how I love to make cards with something extra. I create them thinking about the receiver and tell how I go about that.

If you like some more Christmas card inspiration and you haven’t seen the Foiled Christmas cards post yet. It has some fun new foil techniques, so make sure to check it out!

patterned paper card

For my niece Nadine I’m used patterned paper. The Tim Holtz papers ( SBC ) are perfect for her, she loves vintage so these papers are a great start.

The big open Sizzix – Tim Holtz – Stunning Snowflake ( SBC | SZZ ) is the focal point on both cards.

I used Craft Perfect – Glitter Card – Welsh Gold ( TNCUK | TNC ) for one layer. On the big flake are Distress Oxide ink – Antique Linen ( SBC | JGG ) and Embossing Glaze – Antique Linen ( SBC | ELH | JGG )

The layers on this card adds to the interest. I cut the snowflakes, swith the Sizzix – Tim Holtz – Thinlits Dies – Arctic ( SBC | SZZ ), out of the pieces of patterned paper.

And then I add the parts to a piece of gold glitter card. In the open spaces I added back some of the white inked snowflakes to get some variety

The big snowflake is in the background on the card base. On top of that there is a layer with Sizzix Thinlits Die Set 4PK – Falling Stars ( SZZ ) cut out of glitter card.

Another layer was added on top with the Sizzix – Tim Holtz – 3D Texture Fades Embossing Folder – Crackle ( SBC | SZZ ) coloured with distress oxide spray.

The snowflake was cut out of rose gold Tim Holtz Kraft Stock – Metallic – 2 ( SBC ). Another layer was made with paper coloured with Cosmic Shimmer – Aurora Flakes – Golden Rose ( SBC | JGG )

With a big Nuvo – Dream Drops – Love Potion ( SBC | TNCUK | TNC | ELH ) in the middle en two more above and below the big flake give a nice finish to the card.

I have another to more cards to share with you next week, for my mom and dad and my sister and her husband. So make sure to check back.

Thanks for stopping by and make sure to keep on crafting!
