Each year I like to come up with a new Christmas card design for my homemade cards. This year I wanted to make cards that could be easily adapted for people who do not celebrate Christmas.
I used to make and design soft furnishings commercially, have I ever told you about that? Well the stag silhouettes I designed for applique cushions. Now that I don't do that anymore I was really happy to find a new use for my stags. The templates for the frames and the stags are all on the Free Downloads page.
you will need;
sticky back plastic in a wood grain
- Print out the templates from the Free Download page. Use the templates to trace the shapes onto the back of the wood effect vinyl.
- Carefully cut out your silhouettes. Peel off the backing and stick them onto your card blanks.
- Once you have decided what messages you want to write on the front of the cards use your alphabet stamps to print them.
- I like the rough and ready effect this gave the cards. I preferred this to marking out lines to follow for the wording.
