Folk Christmas Cards

Hi everyone!

The lovely people at docrafts have sent me loads of goodies from their new Christmas ranges which I’ll be showcasing here over the next few weeks. The first range that caught my eye is the beautiful, bright Folk Christmas range which is bursting with turquoise, pink, blue and green and lots of cute, folksy, doodle type designs with birds and baubles.

This first card I’ve made has a bit of a rustic theme.

Here’s how to make it:

1. Use a sewing machine to do a simple stitch in white thread around the edges of a square kraft card blank to create a border.

2. Use the snowflake stamps from the Folk Christmas ‘Yum’ set to stamp a background pattern in white dye ink.

3. Build up the ‘Season’s Greetings’ bauble decoupage topper with foam squares and attach in the centre of the card.

4. Attach a blue Folk Christmas ribbon bow to finish.

Next I wanted to do something a little more elaborate so I’ve used a mix of die sets and a 5×7 foldies card blank to create this expanding, multilayered aperture card.

Steps:
1. Cover each side of a 5×7 foldies card blank, front and back, with different patterned Folk Christmas paper.

2. Use the largest rectangle parenthesis die to cut through the front of the card, leaving a large aperture. Use the tree and chair layer from the fireplace build-a-scene die set to cut through the second layer of the card. Finally, use a circle die to cut through the third layer of card. You may need to run them through your machine a few times to achieve a clean cut.

3. Stick a round ‘merry christmas’ sticker on to kraftstax card and cut out. Stick on the back panel of the card, in the circle aperture, with foam squares.

4. Die cut the garlands, bunting and holly from the fireplace set in pink and green and add to the layers as shown. Add a few poinsettas cut from Folk Christmas paper to finish.
