Simple Christmas

August 23, 2019

Whilst I was anxiously awaiting new supplies from the Holiday Catalogue I created this simple Christmas card utilising Christmas stamp sets which carried over to the Annual Catalogue.  I embossed Real Red card using the Tufted 3D Embossing Folder which is attached to Gold Foil Card.  The whole panel is attached to scored and folded Thick Whisper White card.  I stamped the greeting from the Winter Woods stamp set onto Whisper White card using Real Red ink. I cut out the greeting using one of the ovals from the Layering Ovals Dies.  I also cut Garden Green card using one of the scalloped ovals from the same dies.   I cut Gold Foil Card using one of the leafy dies from the Frosted Bouquet Dies.  I attached dimensionals to the back of the greeting panel so that the Gold Foil die cuts could be attached to the back using the dimenionals to hold them in place before attaching the whole piece to the card front.

To decorate the inside of the card I stamped a greeting from the Merry Christmas to All stamp set onto Whisper White card using Real Red ink.  I stamped the flourish also from the Merry Christmas to All stamp set just below the greeting, again, using Real Red ink.

I think this turned out quite pretty.  I love the look of Gold Foil with Real Red card, don’t you?

I want to share a little tip with you.  To cut down on waste, I die cut a piece from the middle of the Gold Foil layer which is behind the Real Red card using one of the smaller Stitched Rectangle Dies.

Now I have another piece to use on a card front somewhere else and I didn’t waste all that Gold Foil card behind the embossed Real Red card.  Do you do this too?

Bye for now,

Kris

    I love your Christmas card! It’s simple but elegant looking. I also cut out the middle of any foil, glitter and specialy papers that I am layering with, saves on a lot of cost, but the specialty papers are so gorgeous I want to make as much as possible with them. Thanks for sharing your card!
