DIY Clean and Simple Christmas Cards

September 19, 2017

Hello Kaisercraft Friends,

Today I’m sharing a Tutorial on how to make your own DIY Clean and Simple Christmas Cards.  These cards are perfect for mass production.  They are quick to make, sparkly and can be made in any colour you choose!  I filmed a Video Tutorial on how I made these cards so you can see exactly how I put them together.

Kaisercraft Products you will need:

Glitter Card Stock in three colours…

GC109 Emerald, GC107 Golden, GC120 Ruby

DD321 Decorative Die – Merry Christmas

IT021 Mini Designer Template – Flourish Tree

Kaiser Colour Paint in three colours…

KC050 Metallic Gold, KC028 Green, KC009 Red

CD511 Card Pack C6 – White

T321 Acid Free Craft Glue

(You will also need texture paste)

3 Easy Steps to Make the Cards

1. Mix Paint with Textured Paste and smooth over the top of the template and onto the card bases.

Hints: When mixing the paint and texture paste do not use too much paint.  You want it to be mostly texture paste with just enough paint to give you the colour you want.  If you make the mixture too runny it will seep under the template and ruin your image.  Also make sure you clean your template between colours and immediately after use. When you clean it do it very carefully with a baby wipe or paper towel and water.  Then pat it dry gently.  You don’t want to lift up the delicate swirls in the image which can be easily done if you are too rough with the template.

2. Die Cut the “Merry Christmas” sentiment out of Glitter Card Stock.

3. Adhere the sentiment with glue
