Christmas Card




    
    Christmas is coming and I decided to make a Christmas card. Here is the card I made. How have I made this? It's very simple.
I had a thick, white paper and I cut the piece for future card.
Then I took a napkin and separated the top layer with a pattern, 2 remaining layers I did not need. I chose a part of the picture that I wanted for a Christmas card and cut it off (it was a picture with bells and cones)


I put a layer of packaging film on the white paper piece and  I put the selected pattern on top.
Then the important moment came. It was necessary to carefully iron the picture to film and paper with a hot iron.


 When a pattern tightly connected with the paper, I took scissors and cut unwanted edges off card size. I folded in half my handmade card. 


           I used the other pictures from my napkin and made three Christmas cards.

  6. Those are so very pretty! At first, I thought it might be expensive to use one napkin per card, but since you explained that you could make several cards from one napkin, that is a very smart idea!

    1. Holley, if you have a napkin with many different patterns, as mine (there were bells, cones, berries, red leaves of Poinsettia)it's not expensive, you can made at least 4-5 cards. Thank you!

  11. They are very pretty cards. If you had to send a lot of cards to everybody you know, as they do in this country, you wouldn’t have time to do anything else. There would be no time left over for gardening.

    1. Frico, my gardening is the cleaning paths from snow now. So what I have a lot is the time. I will send some cards and then will write e-mails. I'm getting lazy with internet. Thank you!

    1. You're right, Jason. If you make a card and send it, be sure nobody will get the same.
      Thank you!

  13. What a clever way to make cards! There is something special about receiving a card you know the sender has made just for you.

    I've been behind in blogging lately and just saw your last post--beautiful photos! We have had some warm days, too, but I know the snow will eventually come.
