Elegant Holiday Card

elegant christmas card

Hello, Friends! Mitsyana Wright here, and I’m back to bring you a little holiday inspiration with this Elegant Holiday Card!

 With Christmas soon upon us, it’s time to put your card making game into gear!! Let me show you how I created this gorgeous and elegant holiday card with some amazing products from Little Birdie Crafts!

Here’s What You’ll Need:

Step 1

Gather your supplies.

Step 2

Cut and fold your black cardstock to create a standard A2 sized card (4.25″x 5.5″ folded).

Step 3

Trim a mat from gold cardstock to measure 4″x 5.25″ and the second mat from plaid paper to measure 3.75″ x 5″.

Step 4

Layer and attach mats onto card front using Xyron Mega Runner.

Step 5

Mix Charcoal Chalk Paint with texture powder to create a paste.

Step 6

Paint mixture onto Chipboard Christmas Wreath. Set aside to dry. *TIP*- You can speed up drying time by using a heat gun.

Step 7

Once the paint is dry, rub gilding wax over the raised textured areas of the entire wreath.

Step 8

Attach wreath onto card front using mixed media glue.

Step 9

Color several Kraft Leaves using an alcohol ink marker. I used Spectrum Noir’s DG4.

Step 10

Arrange and adhere green and kraft leaves onto one side of the wreath, then attach Camilla Cherry flowers over leaves.

Step 11

Attach “Happy Holidays” from the Happy Holiday With Love set.

Step 12

Lightly apply more gilding wax over tips of the flower petals and over raised areas of the leaves.

Step 13

Attach gold sequins to centers of the flowers.

And here is my finished card…
