Card Fronts Relayered

I have designed and made Christmas cards for churches for many years.  They were always simple designs to make them affordable.

These are my designs where the card front was trimmed and then layered onto a new card base.

This one is a background I designed using scripture as the words in a script font.
The word Rejoice was added over the script background in navy blue.

I then cut a star using the Sizzix Star #2 die which is a large single star. It almost does not fit on the card front so I just offset it.  The yellow card stock was spattered with gold acrylic paint and allowed to dry then it was die cut.

This layer was then adhered to the navy card to match with the greeting on the front.

This card featured angel clipart.

This is a heralding angel with her trumpet and it printed in a dark grey color. 

The greeting was printed in red.

A piece of decorative paper which repeats the colors of black, grey and red was adhered to the left of the angel.

The card front was trimmed and adhered to a black card.  Works really well.

Left: The same card done with the angel in green with red, green and gold decorative paper.  The front was layered onto a kelly green card.

This design featured heralding angels again.

This time it is a symbol available from the DF Calligraphic Ornaments font set.  It was sized to fit on a 1 3/8 inch circle, printed on white card stock and punched with the Stampin Up circle punch.  It was layered onto a SU scallop circle punchie in a coordinating color of card stock.

The greeting was created with a decorative script font in the same color as the angel.

The card front was trimmed and layered onto a new coordinating purple card base.

This card features a vintage Christmas card image with folks headed into church Christmas Eve.

I cropped the image into an oval format and added a shadow.

It was printed onto white card stock.

I added a double snowflake element in the top right hand corner.  The white card stock snowflake is a Martha Stewart punch and the iridescent one is a fiber one sold as confetti.  These were placed on the border and held in place with a white tiny brad.

This card front was trimmed layered onto a new card base in a warm green color.

I've had a successful day getting cards ready for my card box and the box for craft sales.

My box now has 125 cards in it!!
