Now on to some cards.
I created two Christmas cards to share with you today. Both cards finished size are 5x7 or A7 as they are also called.
For this card I used Altenew’s Holiday Bows stamp set, the poinsettia and foliage are perfect for creating floral groupings I stamped and die cut several of the images, stamped and heat embossed. I also cut several geometric Crystal Frames from Altenew’s gold foil cardstock. For my base I used Navy card and splattered with white gesso. I placed my cut images along the left side while placing the crystal frames thought the foliage. The sentiment was created by using the Mini Christmas set and Beautiful Inside sentiment stamp set. Once everything was adhered to the panel I mounted it onto a white base.
My second card displays the newer released Sweet Flowers stamp/die bundle paired again with the Crystal Frames dies. My process was the same as before; stamping/cutting several images and then playing with the layout on my panel. I stayed with a classic themed red/white/green color palette. The gold frames add a festive and elegant touch. Once again the sentiment came from the Beautiful Inside stamp set. I wanted to have a green border and did not have the right colored cardstock so I took a piece of white card and colored the edges with the same Shadow Creek ink I used for some of the flowers.
I hope I’ve inspired you to make some more Christmas cards! Keep “hopping” along to see loads more inspiring work. Next on the hop is Rosie Neustaedter
