Christmas In July Shabby Chic Card Kit


Not only do we get to celebrate Canada Day in July, but July is also a traditional month to start getting those Christmas cards made. With our busy schedules, and if you give out a lot of cards, July is the month to start!

So in that tradition Scrapbook Parade is putting out their first Christmas card kit of the year! This kit is made using the beautiful 'Joyous Winterdays' by Maja Design from the 6 x 6 pad/format; and it is in the popular Shabby Chic style! (At least in Victoria it is.)

Here are the 6 cards in the kit. AND there is a bonus of 6 accompanying folded gift tags too!

For this kit you will need the following:

  • Mixed Media or Artist Paste 
  • 2 different patterns of stencils: 1 large flourish like pattern, 1 small dots like pattern. If you don't have these patterns it doesn't really matter. You need a very small pattern and a very large pattern that can be Christmas like if you wish or florals.
  • Paper distresser
  • cup of water & paint brush
  • Craft Smart Glitter Paint (Dollarama or Michael's) OR NUVO Glimmer Paste in Moonstone (I prefer the first for this kit)
  • Acrylic white paint
  • White with Sliver Glitter Embossing Powder
  • Liquid glue
  • Double sided adhesive tape
  • paper plate or cup to mix media into
  • smoky blue ink refill or acrylic paint
  • Paper trimmer
  • scissors
  • pop ups or foam tape
This is what Scrapbook Parade posted earlier.

"Joyous Winterdays" Christmas in July Card Kit #1 with Maja Designs from Sweden 

You will make 6 cards and 6 tags with this kit.

There is over $35 in product included as well as full colour instructions printed for you.
Kit Cost: $45.00

Note: There are no envelopes included because the cards are so thick. Sabrina will be making tutorials on her blog how to make square card boxes for thick Shabby Chic cards. One using the scoreboard, and the other using the envelope punch board. This way you can make them on your own if you wanted

This is the list of "other" products Sabrina sent me that you will need to have in order to complete these cards - she has also done videos that will be available for you to watch for the various techniques she used. A ton went into designing these cards - that's what shabby chic is, layers and dimension!

As mentioned by Carol, the kit will include colour written instructions as well as a video that you can view from this blog. There will also be a tutorial on how to make square box envelopes for these and other such cards we will make in the future. It will posted on the blog post where I share additional photos for those that have purchased the kit and need larger photos to follow along.
