HOW TO MAKE

You can make the card basis from dense design cardboard. From blue cardboard cut 3 squares with the side 4 cm and three squares with the side 3,5 cm from white embrossed paper.

Stick the squares horizontally onto the workpiece a bit higher its middle — the spacings from card edges should be equal. To make the work easier it`s better to glue the white squares onto the blue ones beforehand and then stick the ready elements to the card.

The color of the paper for the snowflakes should be close to the color of the lower squares. Take a strip of paper for quilling and a skewer, twist the strip onto the skewer tip. Take the made spiral off the skewer and put it into the circle on the ruler, glue the tip. Make 12 similar free spirals.

Take a spiral and squeeze its edges to make a snowflake petal. You`ll have the shape of an «eye» which imitates the snowflake petal well.

Glue six petals in the form af a flower on the outside squares.

Now make the shape of a «horn» — take a strip half of the petal strip length, fold it in two.

We recommend to decorate the snowflake and Christmas tree with tinsels to make the card look more festive and bright. Or you can use glitter glue putting it on the Tree and snowflakes.

From embrossed paper cut a rectangle and write the greeting inscription. If you can`t write nicely, then print the words on a piece of paper, cut them and glue on the card. Our Christmas card is ready.
