Blogmas Day 14: DIY Christmas cards.

I love making cards. I’ve been doing it for probably 8 or 9 years now and it’s a hobby that I really enjoy.

Its definatly something I need to make more time for.

I think that it is always lovely to receive something homemade and I love coming up with my own designs and ideas too.

I usually stick to a traditional colour scheme of red, gold and green and I use this as my starting base.

I then like to get some papers that are in this colour scheme.

I then look at the designs on these papers to see what embellishments I need.

My fave places for supplies are:

  • Hobbycraft
  • The Range
  • The Works

I also love Pinterest for ideas and inspo.

Choose your papers wisely and carefully as these will be the base of your cards.

This is the paper I chose…

You can get some great selection pads of paper, for card making. These are great as they have different themed ones and you get lots of variety within that theme that you have chosen.

They are also better value for money than buying lots of single sheets.

Lets take a look at a few that I have made so far.

I like to keep it simple and just accentuate the paper designs with a few nice embellishments.

I always think ‘less is more’ but of course that’s personal preference.

I hope you have found this helpful and it inspires you to give card making a go.

Let me know if you want any more tips or if you make any cards, I’d love to see them!!

Until next time,
