This time last year I decided that I wanted to create at least three new handmade Christmas card 2019, for all price ranges and with a mixture of styles, to suit everyone.
It took me a few months of research, various sketches of 20 different ideas, quite a few prototypes and now I have four new Handmade Christmas Cards to join the oldies (but still goodies).
In this blog, I am going to introduce the brand new cards, what inspired them and where to buy them from.
Is anyone else super obsessed with Christmas fairy lights like me? I just hate them when they are all tangled up.
This is one fun and colourful card, that doesn't need to be just for Christmas. Could be used for birthdays and New Year party invites.
The card is 6inx6in square, a hammered texture card, its blank inside for your own message and comes with an envelope.
The light cable is sewn to give a fun effect and then the lights are made out of multi-coloured card, stuck down with foam pads, to give a 3D effect.
Silver Christmas Wreath
These next two cards are quite similar, but sometimes simple is better.
This card feature a risen 'wreath' on foam pads and surrounded by sparkly dots and blue snow flakes. The message on the front can be customised, the card is blank inside and comes with an envelope.
Gold Christmas Wreath
A bit more of a snazzy 'wreath' in gold. This design features sparkly gems and red snowflakes with the addition of wooden stars and gingerbread man. There are also small jingly bells attached to the card, and the message is on card attached with a small peg.
Snow-globe Shaker Card
I have always wanted to create a shaker card (as in the insides can be shaken and move around like a real snow globe).
It took a bit longer than expected, and is super fiddly, but I love the background and overall effect.
The snow globe is risen off the card with foam pads and this allows the insides to move around.
The Card is A6 sized, with an envelope include. As standard it reads 'Merry Christmas' on the outside (which can be changed on request) and the card is blank inside.
Which is your favourite? Which do you hope to receive in the post?
I have a couple more cards I am working on behind the scenes, but they will be a lot more simple cards possibly with small drawings or typography.
