Eucalyptus Christmas Card set with Pinkfresh Studio
Dec 5, 2020 | By: Lea Lawson
Happy Saturday, crafty friends! Just dropping in to share a set of Christmas cards using some products that are part of the Pinkfresh Studio weekend promo! Through Sunday, 12/6 at 11:59pm CST you can get 30% off washi tapes & coordinating products using the code WASHI30. These products are SO fun to use, and I love that we introduced matching stamps & dies to be used with washi tape. It just adds so much versatility! This is the best sale we've ever had on our washi collection, so it's a great time to add them to your crafty studio!
I've wanted to create some Christmas cards with the Eucalyptus Fantasy washi tape ever since they released, and I finally got around to it! These cards are super inspired by my holiday decor. Lots of greenery with a bit of black & white plaid, and small pops of red here & there. I was also so inspired by my friend Carissa with the Be Merry sentiment that she used in her latest video on the Pinkfresh Studio YouTube channel. I 100% cased it!

Eucalyptus Christmas Card Set
When I create cards like this I tend to work in batches, then assemble at the end. To start, I adhered strips of the Eucalyptus Fantasy washi tape to white cardstock, then cut out elements with the coordinating dies. I also diecut the full A2 panel with the largest Stitched Rectangle. I have a Tips & Tricks video on the Pinkfresh Studio YouTube channel that might come in handy if you are newer to using this wide, A2 sized washi tape.
With all the diecutting done, I stacked and adhered the letter & word die layers with a glue pen. Then adhered the word dies to their vellum layer, and trimmed into two pieces. I assembled the bows as shown, mixing the plaid & gold elements. At this point it was time to start assembling the cards! I mounted the background panels to the front of A2 sized black card bases with full sheets of foam adhesive. (I create these myself with white craft foam and 5 inch ScorTape. It's super easy and the most cost effective way I've found to do this.) I arranged all the elements to the front of each card, adhering them down with Connect glue. This gave me time to fuss with their placement, but will dry with a really strong bond. I have found liquid glue is the most effective way to glue items down to washi tape, which has that really smooth, slightly glossy surface.
That is everything that I have for you today! I know that I've used A LOT of different products on this card. Keep in mind that you can absolutely substitute what I have used with what you have on hand if you would like to recreate these cards. And be sure to grab some of our washi tape products this weekend at a fantastic price! You won't regret it - I have SO much fun crafting with them!
