Make a Christmas card with a row of Christmas trees against a winter background. Use Epsom salt to add some snow to the scene, and finish it off with a suitable mirror word. Make a few of these cards and you are ready to spread a message of "peace" to friends and colleagues alike.
Total Time: 30 minutes
Yield: one card
- 9.4 x 7.4 in blue cardstock
- 7.4 x 4.6 in white corrugated cardstock
- dark green felt
- light green felt
- golden mirror word - for this project, the word "Peace" was used
- 3 golden paper stars, cut from leftover gift wrap
- 21 small cerise pink flat back crystal beads
- Epsom salt
- Heritage Spray-on Contact Glue
- Christmas tree cookie cutter
- pair of standard scissors
- quick-drying craft glue (such as Bostik Clear)
- Score the blue cardstock in half to create a card sized 7.4 x 4.6 inches.
- Place the cookie cutter onto the light green felt and trace all around it. Repeat so that you will have two trees. Cut the light green trees out.
- Place the cookie cutter onto the dark green felt and trace all around it. Cut the dark green tree out.
- Glue a star to the top of each tree.
- Glue seven crystal beads to each tree. Tip: Use tweezers to help move the crystal beads with greater ease.
- Take the white corrugated cardstock and cut out the inside, leaving a space of 0.6" from the outer edges of this piece to make a "frame."
- Glue the mirror word to the bottom of the frame.
- With the fold at the top, spray Heritage Spray-on Contact Glue to the bottom of the card. Sprinkle Epsom salt over the glue while it is still wet to add snow to the card.
- Glue the white frame to the front of the card.
- Glue the three trees to the card.
- Spray the bottom of each tree with the Spray-on Contact Glue and sprinkle with Epsom salt. It will look as if the trees are standing against a snowy background.
