Hello, friends! It’s Nancy back to share a fun new JOY Christmas Card project!
I always think of Christmas as a season of JOY!
So when I saw this fun file in the shop, I knew I had to make a card with it.
There are two options for buying this card; on it’s own or part of a kit.
Here are the links:
Here’s my card:
Isn’t that a cute and creative card?
I think the pieces would be fantastic all cut out and reassembled,
but I didn’t have the time for that.
So here’s what I did:
I actually took some screenshots of the process.
I’ve not done this before but thought I would try it.
Let me know if it helps.
First, I uploaded the clipart I wanted to use.
The file includes each individual “letter”, along with the word art png.
I uploaded the complete word, and sized it at 5 1/2″ wide.
Next, I added a white rectangle to my canvas.
It uploaded with rounded corners, which I really liked.
I knew that I wanted my finished card to be 5″ x 7″,
so I sized the white rectangle at 5 1/2″ wide.
I sent the white rectangle to the back, and added the word art file on top.
I then resized the word art to 5″ wide.
I then highlighted the whole piece and selected “flatten”.
(Sorry, I don’t have a picture of that.)
Then I selected the “print then cut” option.
I sent the image to my printer, and then added the printed piece to my mat.
Here it is all cut out!
Next, I printed out this fun diagonally striped paper.
It’s part of the Christmas Treats Craft Bundle.
I made a white cardstock card base that measured 5″ x 7″.
I cut the striped paper to fit the front and rounded all the corners.
I inked around the card base and the printed panel, using red ink.
I then added the printed/cut piece to the card base using foam tape.
It’s cute just like that but every Christmas card needs a little sparkle, right?
To finish things off I added pretty red Stickles Glitter Glue to the wreath and the reindeer nose.
I also added Glossy Accents to the reindeer eyes.
It’s such a fun and festive card…and so much fun to put together!
I hope you give it a try!
Thanks for stopping by today!
I’ll be back soon with another fun project!
