Angelina card

Description

A dark blue greetings card has Angelina fibres in white and blue. Five small fabric Christmas trees are mounted with foam pads. The card is edged in gold and a gold Merry Christmas and tiny star stickers complete the design.

Materials used

  • Blue single fold deckle edge greetings card 104 mm x 152 mm (4¼ in x 6in)
  • Angelina fibre in white hot fix
  • Angelina fibre in blue hot fix
  • Fabric in green with gold pattern
  • Thin white card
  • Double-sided self-adhesive sheet
  • Stickers gold tiny stars
  • Sticker gold Merry Christmas
  • Krylon gold pen
  • Double-sided self-adhesive mini foam pads
  • Sticky dots adhesive
  • Domestic iron

Method

Outline the card with a Krylon gold pen.

Angelina usually comes in a ball and looks a bit like candyfloss. We are using the Hot Fix type here. Pull some of the white Angelina out and lay it onto tissue paper. Use enough to represent the snow on the lower half of the card. Repeat with the blue Angelina that goes on the sky area. Place a sheet of tissue paper over this and iron gently with the iron on the silk setting. Fix the flattered Angelina to the card with Sticky dots adhesive.

Mount the green fabric on the thin white card using double-sided self-adhesive sheet. Draw five Christmas trees on the card approximately 30 mm high (1½ in). Cut out the trees.

Add gold dots to the trees with pen to represent tree lights.

Mount the trees on the card with double-sided self-adhesive mini foam pads using the illustration as a guide.

Add the Merry Christmas sticker.

Add six tiny gold star stickers to the sky area.

Product availability

We regret that we are unable to advise the reader of a source of supply for the materials used in the projects on the Card Making Inspirations web site.

The layouts and techniques used in these projects are timeless. However, products such as stamps, stickers and patterned papers are quickly discontinued to be replaced by new items. When this happens we suggest that there is a lot of satisfaction in finding an alternative product that suits the design.
