Are you excited about Christmas? Have you started to Deck the Halls?? We usually decorate the first week of Christmas! I like celebrating each holiday as it’s own so next up is Thanksgiving!
I started with a Cherry Cobble card base. Next, I took a piece of Whisper White (4″ x 5-1/4″) and die cut the border piece on the left and then the right using the Card Front Builder Framelits. This was probably the hardest part of the entire card. Then using the coordinating Carols of Christmas Stamp Set (Bundle & Save 10%), I stamped the greeting in Crumb Cake Ink. I really struggled with my colors for this card, wondering if I wanted to stick with just a few and is that one dark enough. Feel free to change it up if you recreate this card! 🙂
Next up, I stamped the ornaments on either side of the greeting in Basic Gray Ink. I placed a piece of scrap paper over the top border so that the strings stopped in the middle and didn’t cross over each line. Then I cleaned off the stamps and stamped the ornaments in Emerald Envy Ink and Cherry Cobbler Ink onto scrap white paper. Using the Card Front Builder Framelits, I die cut the ornaments out. Two of the ornaments are adhered flat and the other 4 ornaments were added with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals. I love these little things! Now that the front is complete, I added this piece to a piece of Emerald Envy cardstock. Then I added this to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals. To finish off the front, I added a few Enamel Shapes!
For the inside, I added a piece of Whisper White and stamped some ornaments in Emerald Envy to coordinate!!! Do you like to add a layer to the inside of the card and decorate it?? Let me know in the comments below! I don’t usually do it but like to every once in a while!
