Christmas Card Design – 2016

12 Days of Christmas Ideas 2016 – Day 7

This Christmas season I decided to have a go at designing a set of Christmas cards. These were created with the help of Susan Wong, using Stampin’ Up products which can be purchased through her online store (the full list of products used can be found at the bottom of this article).

Here is a step-by-step guide on how to make your own ‘Joy to the World’ card:


Begin with half an A4 sheet of Whisper White cardstock, folded in half to create a landscape-oriented card.


Cut a 65mm by 120mm piece of Basic Black cardstock and stamp it using the Merry Medley stamp set.


Mount this on a slightly larger piece of Garden Green cardstock making sure the right hand side is level.


Position the mounted piece hard to the right on the base card and about 12mm up from the bottom edge.


Stamp a piece of white card with the ‘Joy to the World’ stamp from the ‘Tin of Tags’ stamp set.


Using the 2″ Circle Punch cut out the stamp.


Cut a flag end from the gold foil sheet and tie the Linen Thread around the front of the card.


Using dimensionals, attach the ‘Joy to the World’ embellishment to the front of the card.


And there you have it – one ‘Joy to the World’ Christmas Card. See the next page for the full product list.

If you’re keen to get together with friends and have a go at making this card or any of the other designs everything you need is listed below and can be purchased through Susan’s online Stampin’ Up Shop. Alternatively you can buy them pre-made from our Esty store.
