These three cards and another one here, have a couple of things in common. Right off the bat, it's obvious they all are Christmas themed. They were all created by inspiration from card challenges online and they all have creative twist paper applied to them.
If you have been a crafter for sometime, you might be having a flashback right about now! This twisted paper became very popular in the 80's. If you have never used this type of paper or not even sure what I'm talking about; just picture crepe paper 20 times it's thickness. However, unlike crepe paper that is not in a twisted state, creative twist is commonly un-twisted before using it to create a project.
Wreaths, bows, and paper dolls are the most popular items made using creative twist paper. You can find this paper in a variety of colors at your local craft store. There are also pattern books with illustrated pictures to make this type of craft more enjoyable! Finding inspiration for using this element is as easy as going to Utube. This beautiful flower tutorial is simple to follow along and will result in a lovely creation!
This card was inspired by a challenge on Christmas Cards All Year Round blog. The challenge here is to create a card using non traditional holiday colors.
Inspiration for this card came from a picture and a requirement of using green and white for the card that was posted on Merry Monday Challenge blog.
A sketch that was offered at the Feeling Sketchy blog was the inspiration for this woodsy looking Christmas card.
