Christmas Lamp Card Two Ways


It’s Christmas Card Week on the Pazzles Blog. Be inspired all week long by handmade Christmas cards from the Pazzles Design Team. They’ve each created a card and are sharing two different versions with you. The first version is quick and easy, perfect for making multiples of. The second card is a stepped-up version of the first and a bit more time consuming for someone special. Turn on the Christmas music and create along with us!

Hello Pazzles friends,

Melin here today sharing a fun way to make a fast simple card and or take it to the next level.

Christmas Card Step Card

For the main card base, I used the Side Step Fold file from the Craft Room. I cut them both in kraft cardstock. I then used my DCWV Performance stack and found some lovely cream note paper. So I cut a cream mat for the main area of the card and then cut the rest of the mats in the patterned paper. I then turned to the Craft Room Library and found the fun Christmas Lamp file. I cut them out in black cardstock. For the “fancier” version, I took it a step further and embossed it with black embossing powder. If you look at it, you can see how it makes the lamp look a little more “realistic”. I then cut the flames out and inked them to give them a bit of a “glow”. I then cut out the garland and cut extras to line the bottom two steps on each card. I used my red Stickles glitter glue to add the little holly berries. I then turned to my sentiment and typeset my sentiment in my Pazzles software. I then used the print n’ cut feature to print the sentiments out on my printer and then cut them with my Pazzles. For the frames, I grabbed the Flourish file from the Craft Room and made a frame from it. I embossed the frame with Gold embossing powder on the fancier card. For the other card I simply layered the sentiment onto it and then added some pearl accents. I used my foam tape to give it a little lift.

Christmas Card Side Step Card

For the fancier card I also used the Day 9 poinsettia file and added some poinsettias to the card. I used three layers of the poinsettia flower and two layers of leaves and hand pieced them together. I also inked the edges of the mats on the fancier card and added some gold gems to the centers of the poinsettias. This makes the card a little more special. Either way, both cards are perfect for sending to those you are thinking about this season.

I’ve included the sentiment panel as a free download.

    And Melin hits another one out of the park! I couldn’t wait to see your card. I knew it was going to be AWESOME and I was right!

    I love both of the cards – the one on the left, I would make more than once. But the one on the right would be a one time only card! Beautiful!
