Stitched Christmas Cards
I am so excited to be using the beautiful new Stitched Shapes Framelit Dies which Stampin’ Up! have released early from the 2017 Annual Catalogue. These framelits come as a set of circles, ovals and squares with four dies in each shape and the sizes co-ordinate perfectly with the Layering Circles, Layering Ovals and Layering Squares Framelit Dies which are in the current Annual Catalogue.
I found a card on Pinterest which I cased to showcase these dies. Unfortunately there is no watermark on the photo so I do not know who created these gorgeous cards and cannot give them proper credit.
I added the Candy Cane Lane Designer Washi Tape across Whisper White card and stamped the greeting from the Reason for the Season stamp set using Real Red ink onto the bottom right hand corner. I attached the Whisper White card to Real Red card and then to scored and folded Crumb Cake card. I stamped the small images from the Candy Cane Christmas stamp set onto Whisper White card using Crumb Cake ink and cut them out using the second smallest square Stitched Shapes Framelit Die. I attached the stamped card to Real Red card and then Crumb Cake card both of these pieces of card were cut using the Layering Squares Dies. I attached the stamped panel to the card front using dimensionals. I created three cards using the tree image, the candy cane image and the star image from the Candy Cane Christmas stamp set. To decorate the inside of the card I added two strips of the Candy Cane Lane Designer Washi Tape across the bottom of Whisper White card. I wanted to show that you can step up a simple card without too much extra embellishment so I created a second card using the tree image and added some of the Gold Metallic Thread behind the image panel before attaching it to the card front.
The stitched frame around the image really adds something extra to the card with no extra effort. Such a fantastic set to have in your stash for creating gorgeous cards.
