How to make a simple Triptych Christmas Card

Hello and welcome! Today I’d like to share with you a card I created for the latest Global Design Project Challenge. This was a sketch challenge and I decided to use the Heartwarming Hugs Suite to create this gorgeous but simple triptych Christmas card.

Let’s Make It… Simple Triptych Christmas Card

Start with a (standard A6) card base created from Real Red cardstock. Follow this with a layer of Whisper White cardstock measuring 8.5 x 12.8 cm. Create the three panels using the Heartwarming Hugs Designer Series Paper (DSP), each measuring 7.5 x 3.5 cm.

Adhere the three panels to the Whisper White layer, trying to keep the spacing the same throughout. Use a piece of Tear & Tape to attach a length of Mossy Meadow Diagonal Stripe Ribbon across the panels.

Thread a length of Real Red Braided Linen Trim through one of the Glitter Star Ornaments. Tie the trim in place and adhere the star to the ribbon using a Mini Glue Dot.

Stamp the sentiment onto Whisper White cardstock in Real Red ink and trim to size. Stamp the Christmas Tree and Mug onto Whisper White cardstock using Mossy Meadow ink and cut out using the coordinating dies. Adhere one to each end of the sentiment piece.

Use two lengths of Foam Adhesive strips to the back of the sentiment such that they avoid the star and attach to the card front.

What do you think to my Simple Triptych Christmas Card?

I hope you enjoyed finding out how to make this simple triptych Christmas card. This card could be recreated for many different occasions by using alternative DSPs that you have in your stash. You might also want to try using three different patterns for the three panels. The possibilities are endless but you are sure to end up with a fabulous card.
