Look to the northern skies for cardmaking inspiration with these fantastic free Northern lights paper collection!
These delicate hand-painted illustrations feature swirling washes of colour, creating skies illuminated by the magnificent Aurora Borealis. There’s also a host of adorable animals including polar bears, reindeer, red cardinals and puffins. Combine these whimsical printables with a frosty colour palette of silver, navy and white to make cards that will truly shine on the mantelpiece! There are coordinating sentiments, too, which contain lots of seasonal and festive greetings to add to your cards and papercraft projects.
They are great not only for Christmas cards, but also for winter birthdays, too.

Try these fun ideas using your free northern lights patterned paper collection:
Cut a piece of the northern lights paper into wedges, and layer alternate pieces onto glitter card. Attach to a card blank with sticky foam pads for a magnificent starburst effect. Top with a layered star to finish (and to hide any messy joins in the middle!)
How about this? Cut an oval aperture as a ledge for decoupage birds to perch on. Create a background by attaching the forest paper inside the card!
