Hello Stampin’ Friends ~
When do you start making your Christmas cards? Some of my stamping friends are just choosing their designs, while others are done! Oh my! I am not that prepared … teehee! Today I have a most wonderful card to share with you, and I’ve used an amazing bundle which has some unique qualities and I’ll walk you through them.
This is really a simple layout but the uniqueness of this bundle makes it look like you’ve slaved the afternoon away, when in fact, you’ll just run it the your Cut & Emboss machine a few times and you’ve created something magical … and that is what Christmas is to me.
You will begin with two pieces of Mossy Meadow cardstock … one for your card base 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″ and your front piece 5-1/2″ x 4-1/4″. Both of these pieced will be run through your Cuti & Emboss machine. When doing the card base it’s easiest if you have your score line for the fold done first so you can align the edge of your folder to the score line.
Once you have both pieces embossed, set aside the card base and take the quarter sheet and die cut it using the “largest open die” …. it will nest nicely onto the embossed image. And yes, this bundle comes with the embossing folder, dies and stamp set.
Now that the front is die cut, you will notice that it also layers nicely onto the embossed half of the card base, but before you attach it (we used dimensionals) use your sponge daubers and add some Mossy Meadow ink onto the edges … this gives you some dimension by adding a soft touch of the same color.
The greeting comes from our bundled stamp set and was stamped onto Very Vanilla cardstock in Mossy Meadow, and die cut with the die included with our bundle … it fits perfectly in the framed space! To complete the card we added some Opal Rounds to add a touch of glitz for the holidays.
This special bundle is so fun to use, and you’ll be creating wonderful holiday cards for your friends & family in no time. And the sentiment says it all during the holidays … Together is the Merriest Place to be!
