Easy & Elegant Christmas Card …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

I’m back with one of the cards that we made at our Holiday Stampin’ Retreat. This card is elegant but easy to create! What an awesome combination when making Christmas cards.

Let’s begin with the “Delicate Ornament” Thinlits Dies … I chose the longer thin one. I really like the soft swirl in the design. Whisper White cardstock was used for my base and the front of my card. Using the BigShot and the Precision Base Plate I cut out the ornament. You will save both pieces as the ornament is laid back into the cut out.

(Note: the Delicate Ornament Dies are bundled with the Embellished Ornament Stamp set ~ A great buy)

The Red Foil Sheet is used for the mat and becomes the focal point as it makes the ornament pop! Look closely at my card … you will see that I had enough space to cut my greeting and the ornament top out of the foil before I adhered the card together. Just make sure you are not cutting into the area of the ornament.

My greeting comes from the Holly Jolly Greetings (Christmas) & Christmas Greetings (Merry) Bundle! I love using these two items together … so much you can do with it.

Wow … you’ve just finished the card! Wasn’t that easy … and it’s so pretty. I love the shine of the red foil paper. You can use either the Multipurpose Liquid glue to adhere the ornament and “merry” … however, the new Fine-Tip Glue Pen works slick on the “merry”.

As I said, this was one of my Holiday Retreat cards, now with the new Occasions catalog out (for demonstrators now) I’m planning projects for our Spring Stampin’ Retreat. I’ve got an April date planned … make sure you’re on my mailing list to get your invitation!

Thank you so much for stopping by today.

Have a wonderful Friday!
