There are a lot of options for sending out Christmas cards every year. You can buy pre-made cards, send cards online, or send out photo cards. But nothing beats a hand-made Christmas card! The FaLaLa collection from Crate Paper is perfect for creating unique hand-made cards to send to your family and friends this Christmas! I have two new cards to share with you today, using the collection!
I decided to go super dimensional on my first card. The Snowflakes just popped out at me and I Iove that they have a pop dot on the back for immediate dimension on any project. I started by covering my card front with the Twinkle patterned paper. Then I placed three of the Snowflakes on the front of the card in a staggered pattern. I love the contrast of the White against the Red background.
Next, I used one of the Ephemera Pieces for the sentiment on the card. I added a bit of glue under some of the letters, so the word would adhere to the Snowflakes. To bring in a bit more color, I placed a Button in the center of two of the Snowflakes. I finished the card with a Christmas tree Paper Clip and a couple of stickers.
The second card has a more subtle look, than the first. I used the Mistletoe patterned paper to create a softer background look for this card. And instead of going with a lot of dimension, I kept things flat on this card. Most of my embellishments came from the Ephemera Pieces. I wanted to use the large Gold snowflake and layer the “25” embellishment over it. You can still create great layers on your projects, without adding a lot of dimension.
I finished the card design with a few Puffy Stickers from the FaLaLa collection. I used three different stars to bring some color to the card. And I couldn’t resist adding the cute “ho ho ho” puffy sticker in between the snowflake and “25” embellishment!
It’s fun to create different style cards with the same collection. You can send your flat cards through the mail, to friends and family that you may not see during the holiday season. The dimensional cards are great for just handing out to those that you know you’ll be seeing at Christmas time, or you could use them to finish off some fun wrapping on your Christmas gifts!
