Merry Christmas


To all those wonderful people out there:

May joy and happiness snow on you, may the bells jingle for you and may Santa be extra good to you! 
Merry Christmas!


Maybe some of you can remember, where I got the inspiration for my this year's Christmas cards. It came right form my 'Wreck This Journal': Find A Way To Wear The Journal.
Working with the rhinestones is a little delicate, but the outcome is just gorgeous. Have a look!

The outside:
Cut out a piece of paper, a little smaller than a regular card. Do the same with a piece of fabric. Glue in the fabric, use some glue stick only on the inner surface.For the decoration on the outside, use some patterns of bells, trees, stockings, snowflakes, etc. to glue the rhinestones on. This time use liquid glue.

The inside:
Let some ink drop on the paper, spray water onto the paper to create the marble effect. Let everything dry completely.
Cut the piece of paper in shape, that it fits into your card.

Print some computer made Christmas ornaments on the paper and decorate them with glitter glue. Write your personal Christmas message, BEFORE you glue this piece of paper (again with glue stick) into the fabric outside.

The envelope:
Unfolded envelope is used as pattern. Cut out one piece, using Christmas wrapping paper. Another piece, using normal paper. On the latter use some Airbrush pens to decorate the address fields.

Put everything together and Voila!: Very lovely and very individual Christmas cards!
