Okay, so I am not really ready to start making Christmas cards. Because making Christmas cards is like eating potato chips; once you can’t just make one! It is just SOOO early, but I have a lovely customer who is so excited about starting her cards and she even found an inspiration card on a fellow demo’s blog that I couldn’t tell her no. Also, I realize that World Card Making Day is only one month from tomorrow, so I had better start planning.
Here are the measurements for this card:
- Evening Evergreen 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and scored at 4 1/4
- Mint Macaron 1 x 4
- Tidings of Christmas DSP 2 pieces 1 x 5 and 1 piece 1/2 x 5
- Scraps of the Kraft and Soft Succulent for the Stars
- Simply Elegant Twine 8 inches
- Diamond Weave Ribbon 2 inches
This card is actually pretty simple. As with most projects I started by cutting my cardstock and DSP. Next, I embossed my cardbase, did my die cutting then finished up with my stamping and punching.
I attached the strips of DSP using Multipurpose Glue. The sprigs are attached to the back of the Soft Succulent star with a touch of Multipurpose Glue as well. The ribbon and twine are attached between the two stars with Tear & Tape. Both the star and Merry Christmas greeting are attached with Dimensionals.
