Hello hello everyone, Hope you are well and safe. Today I am sharing my very first Christmas card for the year 2020. In my last post, I spoke about using Simon Says Stamp’s Etched Laurel Leaves and the Slimline Greetings stamp set from STAMPtember® being versatile to make cards for most of the greetings in the sentiment stamp set. I shared thanksgiving slimline card in that post. Today I have used the same two products to make a Christmas card.
I die cut a panel using the new Detailed Ringlet Plate die and sponged distress inks in various shades of red. All of the colours are listed in the supply list at the end of the post. Then I spattered clean clear water, dried the panel, followed by white and gold spatters. I left the panel to dry to work on the Etched Laurel Leaves die cuts.
I sponged the Etched Laurel Leaves dies cuts with shades of green distress inks. Again all the colours are listed in the supply list at the end of the post. I did the same to these die cuts too as the panel spattering with water, dried followed by white and gold spatters too. I left these die cuts to dry as well to work on the sentiment.
I stamped the sentiment from Slimline Greetings stamp set in black and coloured using yellow copic markers. The markers used are listed in the supply list at the end of the post. I trimmed the sentiments and now ready to assemble the card.
I adhered the sentiment on the centre of the red panel using foam adhesives. Then glued the Etched Laurel Leaves die cuts on the diagonal corners of the panel. I then added some red sequins as berries and white rhinestones to the centre of the sequins. I adhered the panel to white card base to finish off the card.
I really love how this card turned out. Same two products used to make card for two different holiday cards. I love to try for easter next although it is not easter time at the moment. I just want to show how you don’t need many products to make cards for various occasions. Hope you are inspired by my Christmas card today.
Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog today. I will see you soon with another project. Until then…….. take care!
