Vintage Inspired Christmas Card Set: A Step-by-Step Tutorial | 12 weeks of Christmas Series Week 11

Updated: Dec 18, 2023


Thank you so much for joining me for this Vintage Inspired Christmas Card Set: A Step-by-Step Tutorial | 12 weeks of Christmas Series Week 11, Let's jump right in.


 When I made card sets, I like to treat them assembly style. Every step I need to I will do with every card until they are all finished. So I started by cutting down my cardstock, I used A2-sized bases then cut the metallic coloured kraft-stock to be about 1/8th of an inch smaller than the base to leave a thin white border all the way around.


After I trimmed all the panel, my next step was to run them throught my die-cutting machine with the embossing folder. Next, I used my die-cutting machine to cut out the dies from Bowtied until I had enought pieces for my 5 card fronts using both white cardstock and white glitter cardstock for added interest.


All that is left is to adhere all the layers and build the cards, you could use some foam if you wanted more dimension but I chose to adhere everything flat on these cards so they would be easied to get into an A2 envelope. I love how simple but vintage these cards look and hope you enjoyed seeing them come together.
