Little Birdie Gel Medium Christmas Cards

One of my favourite things to do is recycling and using products that are readily available in my crafting. One such thing is serviettes. And with this amazing new Little Birdie gel medium, this technique just got a whole lot easier.

  • Step 1

    You will need some Lady Pattern Blank Cards, old book paper, serviettes of your choice, paint brush and gel medium.

  • Step 2

    Split your serviette and remove the 2 back layers. You want only the printed top layer for this technique.

  • Step 3

    Paint a thin layer of gel medium onto the book paper using a medium to large soft paint brush.

  • Step 4

    Place the top layer of your serviette that you separated onto the painted gel medium layer of the book paper.

  • Step 5

    Paint another layer of gel medium on top of the serviette. Be careful not to tear the serviette.

TIP

Because of the nature of this gel medium, you can work quite roughly without tearing the thin delicate serviette. But don’t temp fate!
  • Step 6

    Once your gel medium is dry, cut your patterned paper to size to fit onto the front of your card base.

TIP

Note how the writing from the book paper shows through beautifully on the serviette adding a stunning detail.
  • Step 7

    Die-cut a tag using your Kaisercraft tag die-cut out of green cardstock. Tie the tag around your card using bakers’ twine.

  • Step 8

    Create several cards using different serviette designs. Mass production in one setting makes it so easy and you will be done with a stack of cards in no time.

  • Step 9

    Use your left-over scraps cut off from the card pieces and adhere them to your envelope flaps as a decorate element.

In a few easy steps you have a few unique Christmas cards using your Little Birdie gel medium.
