Concord & 9th : Noel Christmas Card + Giveaway

by May Park-

Handmade Christmas Card

Hello, crafty friends! Today I’m so excited to be on the Concord & 9th blog as their guest designer. I created a Noel Christmas card using non-traditional holiday colors.

This is my first time ever I made a religious Christmas card since I started making cards in 2011. I’m happy that I am now able to send some Christian holiday cards to my friends even though I’m not Christian.

How to Make a Noel Christmas Card using the Masking Technique

  1. Create a mask by die cutting the Mary holding Jesus image from the Holy Night Dies out of Inkadingkado masking paper. (If you don’t have a masking paper, you could use a post-it note.)
  2. After masking off the image, stamp the large watercolor wash background image from the Lace Leaf stamp set using Hero Arts Ombre Inks: Neon Red to Purple, Butter to Orange and Mint to Green. Then remove the mask.
  3. Die cut the word Noel three times from the Holy Night Dies out of Altenew Gold Mirror cardstock and glue them together to add some dimension.
  4. After mounting the die cut word on the card front, stamp the sentiment from the Holy Night stamp set with black ink.
  5. Adhere the stamped panel on a piece of Gold Mirror cardstock and mount it on an A2 sized top folding card with double sided tape.

Handmade Christmas Card

Since I love how my card turned out thanks to the fantastic products from Concord & 9th, I created a few more cards with the same design – especially I love the screentone texture from faux watercolor wash background.

    I forgot to tell you my favorite color….generally speaking it’s orange. But with card making I’m going back to simple neutrals. White black gold silver.

    I LOVE this card. It makes me want to go through all my dies and see what masks I can make with a simile silhouette effect. Don’t tell the other designers but it’s my favorite from Concord and 9th I’ve seen recently 🙂

    Beautiful card! I love the colours. I had to look twice to realise that was a silhouette of Mary and Jesus but now I see it I don’t understand how I could have missed it! My favourite colour is purple.
