Pop in a battery powered tea light (the flickering ones look best) and enjoy a peaceful glowing nativity scene. These 5 inch lantern charity cards are unique to OhHowLovelyGifts and available now in my Etsy shop.
Sometimes I design a card that I wouldn’t have predicted would be so popular. This one has really done well. This is a pack of two Christmas cards feature a wooden angel painted in gold or blue shimmer colours. One of the unique elements is the hand painted stained glass background effect which allows light to flood through like a sun catcher.
My stained glass effect cards come in blue and gold and look lovely on a window with the light shining through.
I have more unique Christmas cards in my shop and as always – all profits go to my two charities.
Handmade Nordic scenes for these fun snow gnome 3D Christmas cards for my charity shop. Only one made of each kind so you can gift something your friends or relatives won’t have ten of on display!!
Do you remember the 80s where you would get repeats of the same sets of cards that came out in the shops !! Not any more thanks to handmade cards!!
Lantern cards are made by adding a middle layer of parchment to the card, forming an opaque window.
Each takes a few days to make and can involve glazing the window such as the nativity stained glass card.
Some cards have a middle layer of transparency for a translucent effect.
A battery powered tea light will give a gentle flickering glow to the card.
You can purchase my Lantern cards on Etsy.
