Hey guys, let’s make an easy christmas card with some dried flowers and a piece of ribbon.
First you want to cut your piece of dried flower to the size you want and optional, give it some color or glitter by dapping some on. I like to dap some color/glitter on the top of each branch so you have a little sparkle but you can see the original color on the rest of the branches. Set the flower aside and let it dry.
I used off-white cardstock as my base and cut a piece of light brownish cardstock to size to use as my second layer. I always cut the second layer a little bit smaller than my base so I get a nice border when attaching it to the base later.
With a candy cane stamp and some white stamp ink, I stamped a simple pattern on my second layer and added a piece of ribbon to it, which I attached with double-sided adhesive tape.
On a smaller piece of the off-white cardstock I stamped “Frohe Weihnachten” (which means “Merry christmas” in german) in a light brown ink and to give it an interesting shape I cut off all four corners of my banner. On the back I used some double-sided adhesive foam rubber.
Use a dap of glue – I used bookbinding glue – to secure your flower piece to your card, hold it in place and adhere your banner over the cut end of your flower piece.
Put some glue (again I’m using bookbinding glue but you can also use the double-sided adhesive tape you used for the ribbon or a glue stick) on the back of your second layer and adhere it onto your base card.
Your card is ready to make someone else happy!
