Christmas Card 2012

Finally! I did finish my Christmas cards on time but unfortunately, I failed to post this soon enough for my blog followers wishing to use the free file for their own Christmas cards last year. But there is no opportunity lost here as the file can actually be used for any occasion, minus the Christmas sentiment (which you can save for Christmas this year).

I fell in love with this leaf design the first time I saw it on a card. I searched for it and found out that it is a punch by McGill which I immediately ordered online. I found out later on that Martha Stewart also has it with the same name 'Pine Branch' which I just ordered. I created a board on my Pinterest with a collection of cards using the Pine Branch. Check out the link to see the beautiful cards:  http://pinterest.com/ligayatg/cards-pine-branch-punch-by-martha-stewart-or-mcgil/

I made good use of my customized bow maker. What an efficient gadget! This is such a tiny ribbon, the bow is only 1.25" wide. For the details on my customized bow maker:  http://ligayatg.blogspot.com/2012/11/bow-maker-making-perfect-bow.html

I used a lot of my homemade 3D/pop-up/dimensional foam tape for the 3D effect of the frame and wreath. I was able to save a lot of money by making my own. For instructions: http://ligayatg.blogspot.com/2012/08/homemade-pop-up-dots-3d-tape-foam-dots.html


I only share my free files with my blog followers. You can become a follower by clicking on 'Join This Site' If you are already a follower, please post a comment to request for the file and PLEASE DO NOT FORGET to indicate your e-mail address on your comment. I always get requests with no e-mail address.

Happy crafting!

    1. I had mine customized here in the Philippines. There are quite a few sources online in the USA. IF you really like the one I have, I've shipped a few orders in the US. The only thing is the shipping costs so much more as it is being shipped abroad, US$14.00 and the customized bow maker is only $16.00 with a complementary pouch. I don't have any available right now but I can have another one made for you.

    1. I normally list the fonts that I use but for some reasons failed to do so on this card :(. Sorry about that. What I did is I made the text into a compound path so it will be stay the same when you open it in your Studio. You can change the color if you want - make sure to change both the FILL color and the LINE color. I will email you the revised file.
