If you’re like me and like everything all lined up neatly and in an orderly fashion then you’ll like this Christmas Card file 🙂 I’ve stacked all the stars in neat little boxes!
The file comes with 4 layers:
- First there’s the Card base
- Then there’s a solid colour overlay
- then there’s a layer with the star cut outs
- and finally, there’s the grid on top.
I can almost hear you saying – “4 layers – that’s a bit of overkill!” but you can easily skip a layer or two…I did!
On the card below, I used a white Base card, the black Star Cut out layer and the White Grid Layer. I skipped the Solid Colour overlay and instead taped smaller scraps of red coloured paper behind a few of the cut outs. Can you see a bit of a metallic look? I attached some adhesive copper tape to card stock and popped it behind 4 of the star cutouts.
On the other card I used the Base card, The solid colour overlay and the grid – I didn’t use the Star Cutout Layer at all – instead I used a few of the waste stars from the other card and popped them on with foam tape.
It’s hard to tell from the photos but I did a bit of up cycling with these samples. The black and red paper was rescued from paper Carry Bags/Shopping Bags, I cut off the handles and gussets and kept the usable (non creased) parts before throwing the rest in the recycling bin. The bags had a lovely glossy finish and cut like butter in the machine.
The Free Files.
I made up the samples in 12.5cm and 10cm. The file is 12.5cm but you can resize as you like.
