it’s Wendy here today to share with you how I made a quick, simple hybrid (combined digital and traditional) Christmas card.

I used this month’s “traditional colours” mood board as inspiration for my card.

First I designed the white panel on the front of the card digitally using some favourite Christmas elements. You could use any pictures on the panel, or even a written quote. I then printed out my design twice on white card stock.

I cut out the first panel and stuck it in position on my cardstock base. My base is 22cm x 15cm, scored in the centre so that the folded card measures 11cm x 15cm. You can make the card any size you want but I made mine this size because it fits in a standard size envelope easily.
The second panel print I used to make some 3D embellishments. I cut out the “HO HO HO” banner, Christmas stocking and the gnome – all very straight forward cutting. I then used foam dots to adhere these embellishments in place over the base. This is what it looks like in 3D.
As you can see, I have also added some traditional embellishments in the way of sparkly gold stars and red bling dots.
Hope I’ve given you some ideas and thanks so much for dropping by.
