Hi there blog friends! Popping in to share a quick post with a Christmas Card. You know how there’s always that small die in a die set that you never used? You know the one, it’s in the set but you wonder how you’ll use it and pass over it until next time :-) For my card today, I used *that* die. I had all twelve cut out for some time; I wanted a textured background so I cut and embossed the same motif 12 times and adhered them spaced out on the front of my card base (that motif almost reminds me of a quilt). Lining them up was a cinch and I glued them down with Ranger Glossy Accents. The sweet sentiment is from Justrite Papercrafts Heritage Christmas Ornaments LG.
The background is made using Spellbinders Folded Lace and the largest size of 5 x 7 Matting Basics A. The sentiment is stamped on Spellbinders Back to Basics Tags and embellished with the flourish from Spellbinders Frosty Forms.
Here’s your Step By Step recap of die cuts and layers, from the bottom up: Start out with a Card Base – 5-1/2″ x 7-1/2″, foam tape, mat layer in green cut to 5-1/4″ x 7-1/2″, foam tape, mat layer in red cut to 5″ x 7″ , die cut layer using twelve of the small motifs from Folded Lace, foam tape, die cut Frosty Forms (cut in half horizontally), die cut layer using Back to Basics Tags. Add ribbon, bow, and pearls.
