Every year I make Christmas cards and sell them to my family so they can send out special handmade cards to their friends. There’s always something so special about receiving a handmade gift or card. I usually start making my Christmas cards around September time so that I have lots of cards ready for the end of November. This year I’ve really been struggling with creative ideas; I feel like I’m in a creative rut and I’ve been finding it really frustrating trying to come up with new ideas.
After a lot of thinking and getting frustrated I decided that maybe I was trying to overcomplicate my designs and I needed to think of a much simpler idea.
I stripped everything back to basics and came up with these cute felt cards!
These were so easy to make so I thought I would share them in case anybody else fancied giving them a go.
The cards are A7 in size (very small and cute) on brown card stock. I used felt to create the stocking and the Christmas pudding. I actually used a die-cut for the shapes, but there’s no reason why you couldn’t cut them by hand as they’re relatively easy shapes to cut.
To create the ‘Christmas Wishes’ sentiment I used a stamp with embossing powder. I actually stamped the sentiment on to white handmade paper which I had laying around. It has a rough texture and helps give the card more of a ‘handmade with love’ feel. You don’t have to use stamps though if you don’t own any. You could always print the sentiment and stick it on or by some sticker sentiments from your local craft shop.
Despite being in a creative rut for what has seemed like months; I’m really pleased with how these cards have turned out.
Thanks for stopping by!
