Warmest Wishes | VIDEO | Natalie Elphinstone

We're quickly hurtling towards Christmas and if you're of the inclination to create some handmade Christmas cards (and I'll hazard a bet that the majority of people reading this probably are!!) then it's well and truly time to start creating your Christmas cards! In fact, I'm sure you already have right? But it never hurts to throw in some new inspiration and maybe I might encourage you to try something you've never tried before.

Did you manage to grab one of the new release stitching dies that Neat and Tangled designed in collaboration with Benzie Design yet? These are changing my perspective on the traditional paper-based Christmas card this year by encouraging me to add some felt embellishments with all the trimmings!

If you notice carefully, the Ugly Sweater Die Set comes with a whole range of small dies for decorating your sweaters with. But don't feel that you have to be limited to just that, when all the pieces can be used as stand-alone embellishments for sooooo many of your Christmas projects. And that's exactly what I've done here. I used the wreath and the poinsetta and the bow to make a kind of banner across my card, and the texture created by cutting these from Benzie Design felt is just incredible.

In my video today I'm going to walk you through the process of creating this card start to finish (including the part where I first finished the card with a whole different sentiment and then changed my mind and used this one instead!!!) I hope you enjoy it, and I hope I've inspired you to add some fabric textures into your next card.
