Northern Lights Christmas Card October Paper Pumpkin Alternative

Create a Northern lights christmas card using pieces from the October 2021 Paper Pumpkin kit and a few basic supplies. Nothing says Christmas cards have to be red and green!

The Northern Technique can be done with almost any color inks you have — let nature be your inspiration!

Similarly, the peace of nature and the Northern Lights is the best wish we can give to someone.

When at my desk with the new kit, I try to make a few of the projects as intended. They are always great ideas. But then…

But then I start seeing other alternatives I can make with the supplies in the box. This Northern Lights technique included!

See below for how to create a Northern Lights Christmas Card:


How to make a Northern Lights Christmas Card:

On a 4” x 5 1/4” piece of Basic White cardstock, blend your colored inks. I have written an easy-to-follow tutorial HERE for the Northern Lights technique.

Using just a few glue dots, adhere the vellum trees to the center of your blended layer. A few may show through. Add snow to the edges of your trees (and strategically over the glue dots that show through) using your White Chalk Marker.

TIP: Add snow to your trees and backgrounds for a wintery feel using the white Chalk Marker.

Next, on a 1 1/2” x 4” strip of Basic Black cardstock, stamp your sentiment using Versamark ink, and sprinkle white embossing powder on it. Heat until it melts. Adhere it over the bottom of your trees.

Lastly, adhere this entire layer to a Basic Black card base (8 1/2” x 5 1/2”, scored and folded at 4 1/4”).
