Craft Corner: Festive 3D Cards

It has been well over a month since I last posted. I’ve been thinking about the content for 2019 along with planning my next move for business and personal ventures. Between that I have been making pretty things as well as catching up on my UK fashion mags. Coming home has been demanding – socialising (partying), sleeping, sewing and ofcorse crafting! I wanted to make a special card for friends in the states so I up-cycled an old card, along with a plastic box, to make it more unique. It’s so easy to make; a small clear box, an old card, with a touch of glitter – FESTIVE 3D CARD!

All I Needed:

1 Plastic box (a card box or bauble) Recycle any clear box for the 3D effect

1 Pair scissors (small)

1 Christmas card

1 A4 white card

1 Card (for 3D window)

White glitter (snow)

White nail polish (snow)

3 Sharpies

Winter stamps (free with Crafts Beautiful magazine)

Washy tape

Invisible tape

Christmas papers (also free with Crafts magazine)

Hairspray

3D Pearl stickers

3D Window (front) 

Festive Forest (inside)

Walking in a winter wonderland card for my nan, I added a napkin to the back with a robin print as it’s her absolute favourite bird – I added artificial snow (a prop from a product shoot) so the card has a textured snowy 3D effect.

TIP: Cutting a hole in the card enables you to decorate both sides of your clear box so you have a scenic surprise inside.

Tomorrow I’ll show you what xmas tree up-cycle I have in my room – From Fire To Fabulous coming soon

Until then…
