Christmas Cards – Day 2

Our Christmas Card Making ideas for today feature our Krafty Christmas Goodybag!

Our Goodybags are known for their amazing value for money, over £20 worth of crafting goodies for just £10, all colour co-ordinated and you will make at least 20 cards.

Here are some of the cards I enjoyed making using the contents of the Goodybag, quick and easy just what I like for Christmas cards as I have to make so many.  I only added some punches, some of our Festive Luxury Ribbon Selection and, of course, some glitter glue!

A simple triangle tree cut from Kraft cardstock.  Cover the card with background papers, cut some hills and add a punched snowflake and sentiment.  Edge elements with glitter glue.
A lolly stick creates the trunk for my ribbon tied Christmas tree.  Add some Candi and a star at the top and your card is made!
I love the die cut robins, I added some colour using a dye-based ink pad and added it to a snowflake covered card.  A sentiment, some ribbon and a touch of glitter glue and the job is done.
Snowflakes form my Christmas tree, with Candi added to the centres.  I love the glitter glue dots to create a border to the top part of my card.
Again punched snowflakes but this time I turned them into a wreath for my card.  Added a layered sentiment, Candi and some ribbon and the card is ready for posting.
In the goodybag you get the die cut robins left in the cardstock, this means you have twice as many to play with.  I added background papers behind the aperture and attach to a card blank.  I added a flower, sentiment and some string to finish the card.
I hope my ideas have helped to spark your creativity and to get you to start making your Christmas cards.
Join us tomorrow as we have ideas from Karen using our gorgeous Distressable Christmas pad.

    These Christmas cards are of the type I like simple design which usually means quick to make but look fantastic when finished.

    I love this Krafty Christmas goody bag, cos it makes such beautiful cards like all your little lovelies Julie. And you get sooo much for your £10.
    Your winter white snowflake card with the lone robin red breast is my fav x. It's the splash of festive red luxury ribbon that does it for me x
