I have a rule that I will not post Christmas related things before Thanksgiving here on the blog. I think Thanksgiving is just skipped over and not given the proper credit so I choose to withhold posting Christmas projects until the day after turkey day. However…yep, there it is…if you like to DIY your own holiday cards, well…you just have to start early so you can get them done! So I am making this exception so that ONE of YOU can win yourself some awesome supplies to make your own Holiday Cards!
DBCard Studio has a great selection of pocket and folded cards and invitations. Great for DIY’ers! the pocket invitations are more commonly used for weddings and corporate events and the invitation folds can be used for just about everything else!
Julie at DBCard Studio was nice enough to send me some invitation folds, 2 different accent layers and envelopes for me to test out! Let me tell you…if you love paper products like I do, you will be giddy with these cards! The folded card is fabulous. Sturdy, crisp and fabulous! The accent layers have a bit of sparkle to them and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside!
They are so easy to print on and assemble and another great thing about these cards is you can keep them simple or you can personalize them as you see fit…either way they look awesome!
Here’s how I made mine!
I started out by making my greeting side of my card by using regular old Microsoft Word! Anyone can do this! I sized my page to 4.25” wide by 6.25” tall and set my margins. See here:
To set your page correctly go to File –> Page Set Up –> Then on the Margins Tab set your margins to those below:
Then click on the Paper Tab and set your height and width. These cards are so flexible you can have your greeting as a portrait or landscape. My photo was portrait so I kept the words the same.
Cut a 4.25’ x 6.25” piece of regular paper down to size and practice printing on that first, you can always flip it over and use it again so you can make sure your spacing is correct. I then fed my white accent layers in and printed…it was much easier than I thought!
Now to assemble, I used the steel accent layer and layered that behind my greeting and then glued into place on the invitation fold using a scrapbooking glue pen. I used a second piece of ice white accent and layered that with my photo of my two goofballs! You can also print your photo directly onto the ice white layer. I then glued that down also.
For the outer tab I cut out this cute “Fa La La La La” using my Silhouette Cameo and applied to the front fold! I love it!
