I have two posts today, so once you’re done, be sure to scroll down and see the project I created for Our Daily Bread Designs HERE).
Hi there!! I’ve had this neat Bazzill Glaze paper in my stash for a month or two at the top of the stack for when I started doodling with holiday cards. I chose it today because the texture is amazing and the colors so rich. I thought it work perfectly with a concept I had for a JustRite Stampers card. My card today uses traditional Christmas colors and I added a bit of distressing to give it a little bit of vintage feel. I’ve taken a couple of pictures so you can see the dimension and the openings. I’m using elements from three different sets including one of the borders from Whimsical Christmas, the border from Christmas Ornaments and a sentiment from Christmas Nested Frames.
I’ve taken an odd angle shot here (from above) but just to give you an idea of the dimension of the card. The banner is bowed and at the bottom of the card you can see through the holes. I cut the borders with Spellbinders Classic Circles SM and Standard Circles LG and then glued them in place. Later I threaded the ribbon through and tied a bow finished off by a bright red pearl.
Here with the card closed the red from the inside shows through and provides a nice contract. I love the texture on the card – the bottom pattern is Holly and the top is Stripes – and has the same effect if you had stamped with Versamark and embossed with clear embossing powder.
