Step-By-Step Process On How To Make Christmas Cards
- Start by drawing the shapes of Christmas themes you want on the card. It could be a Christmas tree which is usually the simplest or even a reindeer. To make the job easier you can use the Christmas ornament that is used to decorate the Christmas tree. Place the ornament on the cardboard you want as it could be white cardboard or coloured. This is dependent on the size of the Christmas cards you want to do. If it is white cardboard you are using try to trace the ornament at almost the tip of the cardboard and not the middle, depending on the style you want to use.
- If it’s small Christmas cards you want to make you will need to measure the size of the cards with a ruler or a tape measure to make sure all the cards have equal length and breadth. If you do not have a ruler or a tape measure you can free-style your cutting on the first cardboard paper and use that cardboard paper to measure the rest for easy cutting. If it’s big Christmas cards, you can cut out the shaped theme and cut the cardboard into two before folding.
- Depending on the colour you want to use for your Christmas card, this is the part where you begin to colour your Christmas card. You can use paper tape on the card to demarcate the colours. you can start by placing the paper tape or where you want the first colour to end. When you are done with that remove the paper tape and place it where the first colour ended before you start painting the second colour. Follow this method if it is a three-coloured card.
- Using glue start placing the cut-out cards on the already painted paper but the glue must not be too much because you will want a dangling effect of the cut-out cards. You must have painted this cut-out before placing them on the Christmas cards.
- Scatter the paper glue around the cards and pour glitter on where the glue is making sure that every part of the cards has been painted.
- Make use of your beautiful handwriting to write beautiful wishes in Christmas cards.
