Country Style Christmas Cards

Paper napkins are fun to use for Christmas cards because there are lots of motifs available and it is so easy to create cards using them. These cards have a simple country look to them and are quick to make. You will most likely not be able to purchase the same paper napkins used for this project. Simply select similar motifs that are appealing to you and the technique remains the same.



Easy Christmas Cards

For this project you will need:

- a white square 13.5 x 13.5 cm card (about 5.3 inches)
- cardstock in the colors of white, red and green
- 3-D pads
- paper napkin applique glue
- baking paper
- iron
- twine (optional)
- a paper napkin with large motif such as the one below (the larger and simpler the motif, the quicker it is to make the card)
Christmas Paper Napkin Motif


1. You will need two napkin quarters for each card you make. Remove all but the top printed layer of your paper napkin and discard the rest.
2. Brush an even coat of paper napkin applique glue onto a piece of white cardstock that is larger than both napkin quarters.
3. Carefully place both napkin quarters onto the cardstock and again brush an even coat of glue over the motifs. Be careful not to tear the napkins while brushing. Let the motifs dry. The cardstock may curl up while drying but that is not a problem.
4. Place a piece of baking paper over the motifs and then iron over the paper napkin. This will remove any wrinkles that may have been caused and also flatten the cardstock, too.
5. Once it has cooled down, cut the first square exactly out. Glue it onto gold colored cardstock and cut out with a 2.5 mm or 1/8 inch border. Then glue this square onto green cardstock and cut out with a 5 mm or 1/4 inch border. Glue the entire square now onto the card.
6. Cut pieces of details (the exact motif, but without the background, for example) from the second napkin quarter. Place 3-D foam pads on the backside of the cut out and then adhere it over the main napkin motif so that the details are raised.
7. If you like, cut a piece of twine and create a bow and glue it onto the card to give it an extra detail.
