Your always on the nice list

Good morning!

I have a sweet tutorial on the papermilldirect blog today.

If you haven’t seen Papermilldirect’s Materica card range I really recommend you take a look this cardstock is absolutely beautiful. Its so lovely and I have used some for this Christmas card.

To make this card you will need:

You will also need:

  • Christmas stamps
  • Copic markers or any colouring medium of your choice 
  • Vellum
  • Clear embossing powder
  • White embossing powder
  • Heat gun
  • Versamark ink
  • Grid background stamp
  • Enamel dots


To make your card base you will need a sheet of Clay Materica Card 250gsm. I cut this down to 4 1/4 inches and scored along the middle at 5 1/2 inches. Fold in half and you now have your card base.

I then stamped my Christmas images onto some White Card Super Smooth 300gsm and I coloured them in with my copic markers and cut them out.

I then cut down a piece of vellum and stamped the grid background stamp onto the vellum using versamark ink, I then added some clear embossing powder and melted this with my heat gun. Once this is done I added some Stick it! 3D Foam Tape 9mm to the back of the vellum and adhered this onto my card front. I then adhered down the bear onto the vellum.

For the sentiment I used a piece of Black Plain Card 250gsm and embossed the sentiment with white embossing powder. I adhered the sentiment down using some Stick it! 3D Foam Tape 9mm.

To finish the card off I added some white enamel dots.

I love how simple this card looks and you can also make a few in bulk to save you time.

I hope you have fun making some Christmas cards and you will be spoiled for choice with the gorgeous Materica range.

Thank you so much for reading
