Blogmas Day 13- DIY Christmas Cards!

Hey hey you you!

It’s the 13th day, I’ve managed 13 days of blogmas! Yay for me! 

And today, it is time for a little bit of DIY. Now, I love DIY, I am a firm believer that a little bit of craft is the best stress reliever (ooh that rhymed!). I love making things so Christmas time presents me with many opportunities to do this, which is just so exciting! 

To make these cards I used:

  • Pack of 5 plain cards from paperchase
  • Fine rose gold glitter from paperchase
  • Black Sparkly ribbon (part of a pack of 3) from paperchase
  • Scissors
  • Printed shapes (e.g. Star and Tree)

I mean, my technique wasn’t anything really to rave about. I basically held the template down with blu tac and glued around it, and then threw glitter at the card to create the bottom design:

For the other two designs, I used the template from the first as the main feature by simply gluing over it, dipping it in glitter and gluing it to the card, simple enough!

Although I do realise these could be a little neater, I’m not a neat person so I absolutely adore the slight messiness! The glitter quality is beautiful and I only needed half a pack for all of my crafts, I massively over-anticipated how much I would need and bought three packs! 

That’s all for today, I hope you enjoyed reading and I’ll see you tomorrow!

Love always,
