Interlocking Celtic Noel Card

By LESLIE A. PANFIL

Who doesn’t love a shinny Christmas card? With all the sparkle of the holiday, this card is made with readymade card stock, metallic wrapping paper and digital art. I developed this Celtic Alphabet with card making in mind.

What you will need:

Card Stock

Pencil

Ruler

Bone File (or Butter Knife)

Gold Gift Wrap

Scissors

Glue Stick

Digital Art - shown here.

Print off art work.


Take a piece of card stock. For this tutorial I used a readymade card stock that comes flat in a 9”x6” size with an envelope. Find the center of your card stock. Draw a light line down the center.

Fold the ends of the paper to the middle. Make a nice crisp fold with a bone file. (A back of a butter knife will work also.)

Cut a piece of metallic wrapping paper about 2” larger than your card stock. Lay the wrapping paper shinny side down on your work surface. Take a glue stick and generously glue the edges of the exterior side of the card and adhere to the wrapping paper. Trim the edges of the gift wrap so that they are even with the card.

Cut out the Celtic letters. Glue to the card by alternating letters. (Shown: the N to the left side of the panel. The O to the right panel. The E to the left. The L to the right.)
