Hello, Friends! Mitsyana Wright here, and I’m back to bring you a little holiday inspiration with this Elegant Holiday Card!

 With Christmas soon upon us, it’s time to put your card making game into gear!! Let me show you how I created this gorgeous and elegant holiday card with some amazing products from Little Birdie Crafts!

Here’s What You’ll Need:

Step 1

Gather your supplies.

Step 2

Cut and fold your black cardstock to create a standard A2 sized card (4.25″x 5.5″ folded).

Step 3

Trim a mat from gold cardstock to measure 4″x 5.25″ and the second mat from plaid paper to measure 3.75″ x 5″.

Step 4

Layer and attach mats onto card front using Xyron Mega Runner.

Step 5

Mix Charcoal Chalk Paint with texture powder to create a paste.

Step 6

Paint mixture onto Chipboard Christmas Wreath. Set aside to dry. *TIP*- You can speed up drying time by using a heat gun.

Step 7

Once the paint is dry, rub gilding wax over the raised textured areas of the entire wreath.

Step 8

Attach wreath onto card front using mixed media glue.

Step 9

Color several Kraft Leaves using an alcohol ink marker. I used Spectrum Noir’s DG4.

Step 10

Arrange and adhere green and kraft leaves onto one side of the wreath, then attach Camilla Cherry flowers over leaves.

Step 11

Attach “Happy Holidays” from the Happy Holiday With Love set.

Step 12

Lightly apply more gilding wax over tips of the flower petals and over raised areas of the leaves.

Step 13

Attach gold sequins to centers of the flowers.

And here is my finished card…

Isn’t this and elegant holiday card ? I hope you enjoyed this tutorial for today!

Easy Watercolor Notecards

Watercolor is on trend and making an appearance in design from home decor to fashion, and of course, in the craft world. As soon as I saw this Water Colour Pattern Paper, I knew needed the entire pack.  I love all things with a watercolor texture and decided these papers were perfect for creating fun note cards.

You can never have too many notecards, right?

So, lets make some fun and easy watercolor notecards.

Materials needed:

Now, when I say this is easy, I mean this is EASY!  All you need to do is cut your watercolor paper a little smaller than the notecards.  Tape paper to note cards.

Cut words out using a vinyl cutter, and adhere the words to your watercolor paper.

How easy was that?

Have fun making your own gorgeous watercolor notecards.  And, stay tuned for more fun craft projects with this paper because it’s just too pretty!

Enchanting Fairy Party Sign

Do you believe in fairies? You will once you get your hands on this charming party project! We’ve crafted up a fun idea for a woodland fairy party theme, in the form of this pretty accent sign that’s great for a party dessert table or at the head of the table. Get ready for magic and fun, because when you believe in fairies, anything can happen!

Here’s What You’ll Need:

 

Step 1: Adhere the light cardstock to the chipboard and press out any wrinkles in the paper, ensuring that the edges line up neatly, and cleanly.

Step 2: Apply the Wendy Paper Crafting Medley to the  lower right corner of the sign, as shown.

Step 4: Apply one large flower from the same Wendy Medley pack to the upper left corner of the sign, as shown.

Step 5: Remove the paper backing from the letters and apply to the sign, ensuring that your layout lines up properly. (this may take some pre-planning before adhering to the sign) The finished phrase is, “I believe in fairy magic.”

Step 6: Using glue, draw flourishes around the borders of the sign carefully, working in small sections, then coat with Dazzle Glitter Cocktail in Cosmopolitan and Tequila Sunrise for an ombre effect.

 

The completed sign can be leaned against a wall or placed in an easel. We added pretty pink wired ribbon in a serpentine wave around the outside of our sign.

Isn’t it lovely among the woodland treats and treasures at our Woodland Fairy Party? You’ll love to see the coordinating Magical Fairy Dwellings and Fairy Berry Favor Boxes we created to go with this, all stunningly displayed together at our Woodland Fairy Party!
