Rolled Paper Christmas Cards

Last year, I failed to send out any Christmas cards so, this month, I am getting ahead of the game. I am going to share two simple Christmas cards I created with rolled paper and stamped images.  I have chosen some traditional colors and patterns from the Scrapbook.com Christmas Collection, but you could use just about any paper in your collection.

Each of these cards gives off a simple, vintage country vibe that I just love. The rolled paper reminds me of frayed fabric and the stitching brings so much texture to the design.

If you are not a fan of sewing, you can easily recreate the look with stamps or dies. I have a few in my collection that I like to use when I don’t have time to sew.

The rolled paper technique is very simple. I measured the width of my card to determine the size and number of strips I would need. On the Christmas Tree card, I needed fourteen three-fourths-inch strips to create the rows of paper.

On the second card, I used wider strips that cut to one-inch wide so I only need six of these to complete the row. I used double-sided tape to hold these in place as I tucked the ends in place.

If you have difficulty keeping the rolled paper in place, you can adhere the ends together before you adhere them to the card. When all my lops were attached, I used the end of a paintbrush to fluff them up again.

If you would like to see a few more tips for creating these cards, I have a simple video for you to enjoy.

A complete list of supplies with links can be found in the YouTube description.

Even though Christmas is quite a few months away, this is a great time of year to work on holiday projects.  I am stocking up during the Christmas in July sale because once the holidays come, I won’t have time to make anything at all and my friends will go another year without getting a Christmas card from me.
