Christmas Sneak Peak

August 17, 2017

Today I am sharing a very quick card I made using up some left over kits from my card class last Tuesday.  I was also lucky enough to receive delivery of some more goodies from the upcoming Holiday Catalogue this morning and I decided to use the Watercolour Christmas stamp set to create this quick but cute Christmas Card.

I embossed the top two-thirds of Whisper White card using the Softly Falling Embossing Folder and stamped the tree image from the Watercolour Christmas stamp set onto the bottom right hand corner of the embossed card using Garden Green ink.  I wrapped the bottom of the embossing using the Real Red Mini Tinsel Combo Trim before attaching to scored and folded Real Red card.  I stamped the greeting which is also from the Watercolour Christmas stamp set onto Whisper White card using Real Red ink before cutting it out using the largest of the circles in the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies.  I attached the greeting to a Real Red scalloped circle cut using the Layering Circle Framelits Dies and then the card front using dimensionals.  I added a small Basic Rhinestone to the centre of the stars at the top of the trees.

To decorate the inside of the card I attached a narrow strip of Real Red card behind one long edge of Whisper White card embossed using the Softly Falling Embossing Folder.  The embossed card is attached to the bottom of Whisper White card.

This is such a great stamp set which I am sure you will love.  It has three very large greetings in the set, three tree images and a great stamp to complete the inside of your cards.  The stamp set is designed to co-ordinate with the Watercolour Christmas card Project Kit.  This kit contains everything you need (except the stamp set) to create 20 Christmas cards.

I was happy to use up the pieces I had laying on my desk.  I usually end up with a fair bit of waste from my card classes but not this time.  I think I will create a few more cards using up the remaining pieces.

I’d love to know what you think.

Bye for now,

    It’s always great if you can use up those pieces you already have cut.
