Hope everyone is enjoying their Christmas Eve so far! I completed the special Christmas card for my dear husband and wanted to share this quick post. Then I’m off to bake a pecan pie!
This card is different from the more traditional ones I made recently but I loved the glittery patterned paper from My Mind’s Eye called “O Christmas Tree” and that was my starting point. I used two patterns of paper from this stack.
The overall card measures 5×7 so the tree paper measures 5×7 and the green strip on the left measures 1×7 inches. It made a nice background to run twine and a red button on top. I used a left over holly leaf die-cut from last week’s cards (from Potpourri Basket cut at 1 1/4 inches) and then cut out two snowflakes from the “Potpourri Basket” cartridge at 3 and 2 1/2 inches. The snowflake image is originally from “Joys of the Season”. I highlighted the snowflakes with Stardust stickles and raised them up with foam dimensionals.
The sentiment’s frame is cut at 1 3/4 inches from “Storybook” (on page 71) in accent blackout. The Merry Christmas stamp is one of my favorites from Stampabilities. I stamped the sentiment in red ink and used brown ink and a sponge dauber to age the outer edges. I wrote and printed the inside sentiment using Word’s Papyrus font in 18 and 16 pt.
Thanks for following me on my little card journey this year! I appreciate all of your lovely visits and comments. Your support means so much to me as I continue to learn and grow in this paper hobby!
Wishing you and your loved ones a very special holiday season and a blessed and happy New Year!
