Today I thought I would share with you how I have made these super easy Christmas cards. Even though its not December yet it’s never too early to start writing out Christmas cards to family and friends.
What you will need
- Sponge / paint brush
- Card / paper (my cards were 14cm x 28 cm folded in half so it became a square)
- exacto / stanley knife or scissors
- Stencil christmas-card-stencil
So first you will need to print out a stencil onto an A4 sheet of paper or you can trace it onto a sheet of plastic or cardboard so that you can reuse it ( I used paper).
Then using an exacto/ stanley knife I cut out my stencil, make sure that you have enough paper on the sides of your cut outstencil so that the paint won’t go over the edge (my tree one didn’t have enough paper on the edge so some paint went over).
Now squirt out your paint onto a paint pallet and place your stencil over your card.
Using one hand get your sponge or paint brush and dab the paint over the stencil and using the other hand hold the stencil down (try and make sure that the stencil doesn’t move).
Next carefully remove the stencil from your card and your done.
You can then use different stencils and colours. Also a little tip is once you have done one let the stencil dry for a little bit and you can use it for as many cards as you want.
I really hope you have enjoyed and are as excited as I am for Christmas. I am planning on doing a lot more Christmas inspired posts so stay tuned for those.
Also the printable-december-calendar is ready just in time for you to start writing all your Christmas plans on, hope you enjoy.
