Simple Ephemera Christmas Cards

 

It’s Cheryl here with you today, and I wanted to show you how you can make simple, yet stunning Christmas cards using double-sided design papers, cut aparts, and Ephemera.

That’s all I’ve used here apart from some glitter card, cardstock, and clear glue. Oh, and I did make a bow using ribbon from my stash.

 

For this first card, I used a cut apart, and backed it using glitter card, then added it to the design paper with foam tape.
I also added clear glue to the berries to make them stand out more.

 

 

This card is even more simple. I backed the ephemera with matching cardstock (to the base), and added foam tape. After securing it, I added a bow.

 

Most of these cards were made using scrap pieces left after making other projects. This one is no different.  The first image shows you the back of the ephemera and the glued on piece of glitter card.

The green is all that’s showing of the back of the ephemera, so I made that scrap piece of glitter work for me.

 

As you can see here, the glitter is only showing on the right side and bottom of the cut apart.  To work it into the rest of the card, I cut a thin strip of glitter paper and added it to the left side. I added foam tape and added the cut apart to the base. You would never know about the scrap if you hadn’t been told.

 

This card is probably the simplest of them all. I trimmed the cut apart on three sides, leaving the bottom. I then fussy cut around the bottom edge of the bow, then trimmed the rest of that bottom edge with scissors. I added it with foam tape and that was it.

 

This last card is slightly different to the others. I have used some ephemera for this card. I added it to the base with foam tape, then added some pearls to finish it off.
I added clear glue to the berries, and glitter glue to the centre of the poinsettia.

 

 

Each of these cards are beautiful and unique. They are all quick to make, and will impress your friends and family.
