I usually make Christmas cards for all the children in my class. Years ago the class was quite small and my cards were a bit more elaborate, however the past couple of years or so two classes have been amalgamated into one so the numbers have got bigger and as a result my cards have got less elaborate and quicker to make. With Rudolph day a monthly event it has spurred me on to think about the design for this year’s card a lot earlier than usual. In the hope that if I start now I will get enough made for the whole class before December 25th I decided to be a bit more adventurous and have come up with a simplified exploding box design.
Do Crafts free Christmas background papers downloaded from web site
Away in a manger sheet music download
Christmas stamps (sorry do not know make)
Memento Tuxedo Black
Derwent Studio pencils
Using the nativity stamp I stamped it in Tuxedo black onto white card, coloured in with the pencils and then cut out with enough extra card at the bottom to make a tab. I glued the tab to the base of the box.
With the greeting stamp I made a square to go on the front of the box. I used the left over card to make a double tag, the smaller outer one covering up a white blank on the bigger one. The tag will have the child’s name on come Christmas!
The Rudolph Day challenge asks for two cards so I have added a picture of my first design, which I was not so keen on!
Thank you for dropping in. Take care.
I would like to enter these cards into the Rudolph Day Challenge
