Hi everyone! Starting out the week thankful I woke up early to get a post written! I was inspired to make this card using these colors and design by a little Christmas card catalog that came in the mail, a business would order personalized cards from. I don’t normally think to mix white with gold!
I embedded the Memory Box Arpeggio Snowflake die like my video HERE…such an easy way to adhere this detail image and love how it looks on the back side, even though I trimmed the panel down and glued it to a card base. hehe
Merry is die cut in gold and glued on…Christmas is white heat embossed and from the poppystamps Christmas Greetings stamp set. I’m getting a lot of mileage out of that stamp set!
The black card-stock background panel is cut with the Memory Box Speckled Background die. An A2 size, top folding card.
oh, I had fun playing with the new Memory Box Circle Bump Borders die set! Here I die cut one of the sizes twice at an angle in a 4.25 x 5.5 panel of white card-stock. I scotch taped the straight lines on the back side and glued the panel to an A2 size card-base. Then you can just slip a gift card right under the bumps and it holds it perfectly and stays! So happy when done! hehe
This was a surprise drawing/gift at our stamp club party Friday. Jan won! Thank you Carolyn for the HyVee gift card!
I’m loving this new poppystamps Pine Twig die. Die cut it twice and glued on. But of course it needed holly! I die cut poppystamps Holly Leaves and Berries die twice and glued them on. Fast and flat if you want to mail it! oh, a little glittery snow would’ve been fun…ok, on the next one! lol
Here’s the Memory Box Circle Bump Borders die again! I used a bigger one this time. That poppystamps Christmas Greetings stamp set again, some little strips of gold metallic card-stock that I did run through the big shot with the bump die so the ends would be curved, the pretty little poinsettia from the Memory Box Fanciful Poinsettia Ornament die and the pine branches from the Memory Box Blissful Bundle die.
You’ll notice the front panel has a little border…I like to use the A2 size rectangle die from the Avery Elle Custom Panel set, when I need the front panel back side to be covered. Then I just glue it to an A2 card-base.
I was happy with this sweet A2 size CAS Christmas card. Should be easy to mail even with that small gold pearl.
Well, yesterday we went to Costco and bought an artificial Christmas tree. We’ve had real Christmas trees for over 30 years. I’m not sure I’m gonna be alright with it. sigh. Sounds so silly typing it. I won’t have a tree to water every morning! One daughter told me, I can always buy a real tree too! hohoho She’s right but one of them would never get decorated cuz I gotta make cards you know! lol I do love real trees.
Happy Thanksgiving week to you wonderful blog friends. You’re the best! I’m thankful!
