Vintage Theme Christmas Cards

Foiled Christmas Cards

Are you frantically getting ready for Christmas? We decided to take a long vacation the weeks before Thanksgiving - so I am super behind this year! We will not be taking a vacation at that time again. It  wrecked my Christmas schedule!

I don't send out many handmade cards- but there are a couple of people that I like to send something special too. For these cards I used Rinea® Foiled Papers to add some lovely accents. And I got to repurpose some supplies I have had lying around for years!

Craft Supplies

I have totally had these chipboard pieces from K & Co for years. Literally years. It never seems like I have the right project to use them on. So this time I decided to cover the chipboard pieces to match my project. I used Silver/Silver Glossy Foiled Paper to cover one side of each chipboard piece.

Rinea Foiled Papers

I started by applying double sided adhesive to one side. I love and use iCraft Easy Cut Adhesive Sheets from Therm-o-Web. They are so easy to use! After trimming the adhesive sheet close to the chipboard, I used a nail file to trim to fit. I love the this also gives the chipboard a vintage look too!

Die Cutting

The card bases I used here are also from K & Co - seriously I have a bunch of this stuff I am trying to use up!  I cut the sentiments using Ruby/Gold Glossy Foiled Paper and a cute die set from PhotoPlay.

Christmas Cards

I grabbed a few more embellishments from my Christmas bucket to finish the cards off; ribbons, flowers, die cut embellishments, and some greenery. Done!

What are you working on for Christmas? I would love to see some photos - drop me a pic on my Facebook Page.
