Merry Christmas Mum
Are you like me? I make cards all the time for my class at Beachmere, three a week, one of which has been a Christmas card since the beginning of August. However, when it comes to my family, I always make them something I haven’t made before. Especially for my Mum and Dad, because Mum comes to the classes at Beachmere and she has the same cards as me!
So this is the card I made for my Mum and Dad. I embossed the bottom half of Whisper White card using the Softly Falling Embossing Folder. I stamped the greeting from the Reason for the Season stamp set onto the top right hand corner of the embossed card using Real Red ink. I wrapped the embossed card with the Real Red 3/4″ Stitched Edge Ribbon and attached it to scored and folded Early Espresso card. I cut a circle from the Candy Cane Lane Designer Series Paper using the Layering Circles Framelits Dies and attached it to an Early Espresso scalloped circle cut using the same dies. I hand cut the little house from the Candy Cane Lane Designer Series Paper and attached it to the centre of the circle. The image panel is attached to the card front using dimensionals.
To decorate the inside I added a narrow strip of Early Espresso card behind one long edge of Candy Cane Lane Designer Series paper and attached it across the bottom of Whisper White card. I cut another of those cute houses from the designer series paper and attached it to the left hand side of the designer series paper.
I love this card, simple but it looks so cute. What do you think?
Bye for now,
