Fun Textured Christmas Cards by Mandy Knapp of mandyknapp.co.uk


Ensure the area you are working on is protected with newspaper, as this is going to be messy.


2. Lay them haphazardly on your white card, paint side down. Use another piece of clean scrap paper on the top and press down, so all the paint transfers on to the card. You can either press with the heel of your hand or the back of a table spoon.


3. Use a few colours and an assortment of textures to create interest. Cover the paper completely, but don’t worry if there’s a little white showing through. Then leave


the paper to dry completely.


4. Choose a shape to cut out, stars, baubles or maybe christmas trees, and make a template, so your desired shape can be repeated.


5. Cut out your desired shapes from your creation, and stick them on a blank C5 card for gorgeous handmade Christmas cards.


Get messy and have fun!


You will need: • A piece of white card, A5 or A4. • Some textures to print with (foil from jam tarts, corrugated card, bits of string, ribbon, netting from the tangerines, bubble wrap etc). • Poster paints/children’s paints


Instructions: 1. Here’s the messy bit. Use the paints in your chosen colours and cover the textured items in paint, using a roller or brush.
