Day 10 of 12 Days of Junk Journal Gift Ideas 2020 – Card and Envelope. The project today is to create a Christmas Card and matching envelope. I’ve had this partial roll of wrapping paper for a few years and decided it would be perfect for envelopes. Then I grabbed some digital images, stamps and scraps of book pages for the card. This is a great project to use up those left over bits.

Day 10 of 12 Days of Junk Journal Gift Ideas 2020 – Card and Envelope. The project today is to create a Christmas Card and matching envelope. Taking a partial roll of wrapping paper and some digital images, stamps and scraps of book pages for the card, Linda shows us to use up those left over bits.
Follow the other Creator tutorials:
Linda starts out by cutting squares of Bible Book Pages with Music pages and using Aleene’s tacky glue these on her wrapping paper scrap. Using her A2 envelope template she traces and cuts using fiskars scissors.
Inked the Pine Cone duo stamps and Tick Tock rubber stamps with black archival ink stamp on the envelope. She then uses a stencil from the September stencil club with a blending brush tool and applies forest moss distress oxide ink to the envelope to add a pattern. Once you have completed your design on your envelope you can fold the template tabs and apply walnut stain distress oxide ink. Glue the tabs using tacky glue, it dries clear as well as it gives you time to adjust.
Creating a label with red cardstock round the corners using the Crop A Dile Chomper. Linda then outlines the cardstock using a ruler and a black permanent marker to create a border. She then stamps out a festive cube stamp for a festive touch and can be used as your address area on the envelope. Taking a Faux Stamp digital by Calico Collage then backing with red cardstock and used for the back of the envelope as a closure. When creating this element make sure not to glue it down completely so you can tuck your card inside!
Putting together the elements of the card, Linda collages on red Cardstock with music sheet and bible page scraps. To add color to plain cardstock she applies A Christmas Dream Holly Leaf Tattered Angels with a paint brush and outlines the outside edges. This is a great way to add a pop of color to any scrap. Don’t forget to distress the edges of your elements!
A Vintage Gift Tag Digital by Calico Collage is layered on top of the music and then sentiment from Holiday Greetings quartet stamped with black archival ink. A scrap of fabric will be the backing, Linda sews the outside edges of the card collage and sentiment and then sews it on the red cardstock she created earlier.
For an added element ta ribbon bow is added to the card. The elements are all sewn together and then the sentiment is added using Aleene’s tacky Glue. You could also use bling like a flatback pearl or gem for an added touch.
What a great idea to customize your own Christmas Cards and Envelopes! What elements would you choose to create and send out this year?
