Snow card – posting a white Christmas

Christmas times are superbusy times. So much that, believe it or not, I haven’t come round to making any Christmas cards yet. So now I need something cute, fast and easy so I can get those Christmas Greetings out the door pronto.

The best thing is that you can make this card with materials you most probably already own. This is what you’ll need:

  • White paper
  • Hole puncher
  • Blue colored cardboard or a blank blue card
  • Double sided and normal tape
  • White thread
  • Sticker paper (optional but recommended – otherwise you might need glue)
  • Pretty pens to draw your cloud with

Punch some holes on your white sticker paper. If you don’t have any, normal paper will do. Gather all the small white dots aka snowflakes.

Cut some bits of white thread and stick them on the sticky side of the snowflakes and cover with another snowflake. A bit like a snowflake – thread – snowflake sandwich. If you are using normal paper then you can use some double sided tape to stick together the thread and the snowflakes.

Draw (or download and print) a cute cloud and cut it. I decorated it with some golden colored pen. Take the normal tape and stick the bits of thread on the back of the cloud. I quite like it when the snowflakes fall with different lengths.

I made use of my S200 printing kit and stamped the back of the card. If you don’t have a stamp that’s ok, write or draw a small cheeky surprise! The card is now ready to be written on and posted, someone will get their own white Christmas through the post! Merry Christmas everyone!
