Happy Friday, everyone! I’m back today with an easy Christmas card. Even though it’s easy, it’s absolutely breathtaking and I truly wish the photos did this card justice.
I started by creating the background. I used cutting a panel from the Large Snowflakes Foil-Mates from Gina K. Designs. I ran it through my laminating machine twice using the Opal Deco-Foil from Therm O Web. The opal foil is absolutely perfect for foiled snowflakes! I then matted the snowflake panel on a piece of Cherry Cobbler card stock from Stampin’ Up!®
For the sentiment, I used one of the greetings from the Snowflake Sentiments stamp set from Stampin’ Up. The greeting includes “from our family to yours” in a small block font just below the word Christmas. Since I only wanted the Merry Christmas part, I masked off the rest of the sentiment using a piece of sticky note. I inked up the stamp with Cherry Cobbler ink then removed the sticky note mask before stamping the image on a piece of Whisper White card stock.
After stamping the greeting, I cut it out on my Big Shot using the third largest oval from the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies. While I was cutting, I also cut out the coordinating scalloped over from the Layering Ovals Framelits Dies from a piece of Cherry Cobbler card stock. I then adhered the sentiment oval to the scalloped oval using tape running.
To assemble the card, I created a top-folding card base from Whisper White card stock. I adhered the matted snowflake panel to the card base using tape runner. I added a bit of Fast Fuse adhesive to the center of the card a couple of inches from the top and adhered some retired Cherry Cobbler taffeta ribbon to it. I adhered the matted sentiment oval over the ribbon using Stampin’ Dimensionals. For a bit of bling, I added a small rhinestone on either side of the sentiment and that completed the card.
Until next time …
