Traditional Kraft Christmas Card | Christmas in July Series


Hello Everyone, thank you so much for stopping by for my Christmas in July 2021 series!! I have this beautiful traditional Chrismtas card to share with you this week!! Let's jump right in.


I used a panel and base made out of Neenah Desert storm card stock, using a stitched rectangle die to add something a little extra to the panel. I white embossed a few images and my sentiment from Simon Says Stamps Joyful Season's stamp set. I coloured in parts of the images with some Prisma cloured pencils using two shades of red, green and a white for the cotton.


I wanted to add some whimsy to the design so I splashed on some perfect pearls and white gouache to the background and set that aside to dry. I wanted to have a matching envelope so I stamped the same image onto a Simon Says Stamp School House Red envelope. Once my panel was dry I adhered down a red velvet trim ribbon to the bottom and added a few Studio Katia Icy Sparkel Crystals around the sentiment. I wanted to add some dimension to the panel so I used 3M foam tape to adhere my panel to the base, and for a little added shine I brough in some Glossy accents and added it on top of all the berries in the image.


I hope you enjoyed how this card came together and if you would like a more in-depth look at how I made this card please check out the step by step video linked down below. I also have a full supplies list below the video if you want to know exactly what I used. Thank you so much for stopping by and I will see you again soon!!

Beautiful cards and love all the tips you share in your videos. Example is adding gray shading with copic marker, little touches that elevate a card's design.
